Lactocran is probably the only cranberry probiotic with the most probiotic strains



Recurrent UTIs (rUTIs) can be defined as at least three episodes of UTI in 1 year or two episodes in 6 months. Various antibiotics have been the mainstay of therapy in ameliorating the incidence of UTIs, but recurrent infections continue to afflict many women. Probiotics have been shown to be effective in varied clinical trials for long-term preventions of rUTI.

Because Escherichia coli is the primary pathogen involved in UTIs which spreads from the rectum to vagina and then ascends up the sterile urinary tract, improving the gut or vaginal flora will thus impact the urinary tract. Since a healthy vaginal microbiota is mainly dominated by Lactobacillus species, in this context, the more lactobacillus strains, the more effective in relieving and preventing an UTI. Administered probiotics containing Lactobacilli play a pivotal role in reducing the risk of recurrent UTI.

The concept of boosting the Lactobacilli numbers through probiotic administration has long been conceived but has been recently shown to be possible and positive. Lactobacilli may especially be useful for women and men with a history of recurrent, complicated UTIs or on prolonged antibiotic use. Probiotics do not cause antibiotic resistance and may offer other health benefits due to re-colonisation in the urinary tract with Lactobacilli.
