Cranberry

In praise of the humble cranberry

Both the crushed berries and the juice have a long history of medicinal use. Native American Indians have traditionally eaten cranberries as a food, as well as consumed them to support bladder and kidney health.

Cranberry fruit is commonly used to help with symptoms of cystitis (a urinary tract infection), as well as a source of antioxidants that contributes to the maintenance of good health.

Cranberries possess anti-adhesion properties which help reduce the adhesion of bacteria to the urinary tract. This helps to reduce the adherence of bacteria to the urinary tract.

KEY BENEFITS

  • Helps with symptomatic relief of medically diagnosed cystitis

    Cranberries are full of bioactive compounds, such as proanthocyanidins (PAC), which can help with symptomatic relief from discomfort associated with medically diagnosed cystitis such as itching, urinary odour and frequent, burning urination.

  • Our Cranberry capsules contains Pacran®

    Pacran® is a proprietary cranberry ingredient. The beauty of Pacran® is that it uses the whole of the fruit (rather than just the juice), so no cranberry goodness is wasted.

  • A potent antioxidant

    Cranberries have a high flavanol content. They consistently rank highly among common fruits and vegetables for their antioxidant activity. Flavanols are also known to be potent antioxidants.
