Is it a myth that Cranberry does help relieve UTI?

Posted on27 Apr 2019
“There is an active ingredient in cranberries that can prevent adherence of bacteria to the bladder wall, particularly E. coli,” says urologist Courtenay Moore, MD. “But most of the studies have shown that juice and supplements don’t have enough of this active ingredient, A-type proanthocyanidins (PACs), to prevent bacteria from sticking to the urinary tract.”

However Lactocran has a USA clinically proven and patented Cran-Max which is not only uniquely extracted to ensure it gets the most PACs from cranberry but it has a bio-shield that ensure optimal delivery to the urinary tract. Lactocran has 500mg of CranMax which is equal to 60mg of PACs. According to research, 36mg is sufficient to help relieve and prevent UTI. On the other hand, here are three things that Dr. Moore says women should do to help prevent UTIs:
1. Take precautions to prevent UTIs after sexual activity.

“Frequency of sexual activity is strongly correlated with UTIs,” she says, and multiple partners and a history of sexually transmitted diseases put you at the greatest risk. If you’re prone to recurrent UTIs, Dr. Moore advises against using spermicides or barrier contraceptives (like a diaphragm) and will often recommend a single dose of an oral antibiotic be taken before or after sex.

2. Develop good bowel habits. Urinary tract infections are caused when bacteria from the rectum strays into the vagina, she says.

That most commonly happens when you have constipation or diarrhea, so do what you can to stay regular.

3. Balance “good” bacteria with bad. For post-menopausal women with recurrent UTIs, Dr. Moore often uses a combination of topical (vaginal) estrogen and probiotics. Menopause alters vaginal pH, causing a change in bacterial colonization. Topical estrogen normalizes vaginal pH so that the vagina is hospitable to good bacteria again. The “good bacteria” or lactobacillus from taking probiotics can then colonize the vagina. “You want more healthy bacteria so less bad bacteria can adhere to the vagina,” she says.

Lactocran + has 19 probiotic strains, which are specially selected to replenish and repopulate the vagina area with good beneficial bacteria to prevent recurrent UTI. This is why if you suffer or would want to prevent UTI, you should start to take LactoCran + Probiotics.
