Your Daily Maintenance for Urogenital Health with 25 Billion Probiotics from 7 strains plus 150mg of PACran™ cranberry extract and 2 grams FOS per serving.
Recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs) afflict a great number of women around the world. Since lactobacilli (probiotics) dominate the urogenital flora of healthy women, supporting the urogenital flora with probiotics may protect against UTIs. Clinical trials in women with UTIs have been carried out to assess the effectiveness and safety of probiotics for protection against harmful bacteria (uropathogens.) The evidence from the available studies suggests that probiotics can be beneficial for preventing recurrent UTIs in women1.*
Probiotics additionally play a major role in the maintenance of a healthy vaginal tract by preventing the colonization of pathogenic bacteria. Lactobacillus acidophilus and L. paracasei in particular have been shown to inhibit, by exclusion and competition, the adhesion of Staphylococcus aureus, Group B streptococci, and Gardnerella vaginalis to the vaginal tissues.2, 3 These Lactobacillus strains and others (L. rhamnosus, L. fermentum3) have been identified as anti-infective agents in the vagina.2 The benefits seem to derive from hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), lactic acid, and natural antibiotics (bacteriocins) produced by the probiotic bacteria.3 It should be noted, however that none was able to decrease the attachment of E. coli.*
But cranberry extracts are known to help resist E. coli adhesion on urogenital tissues. For added support to urogenital health, Vibrant Healths U.T. Biotic products include a new cranberry extract, PACrantm that provides a unique class of proanthocyanidins clinically shown to resist adhesion of unwelcome bacteria in the urinary tract. It joins 25 billion probiotics from 7 strains known to be beneficial for urogenital health as identified in the scientific literature.*
Available in bottles of 30 vegetable capsules.
Each serving of powder also provides 2 grams of Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) to support probiotic colonization.
PACran™ provides a unique class of proanthocyanidins that is clinically shown to resist adhesion of unwelcome bacteria in the urinary tract. Good probiotic bacteria dominate the urinary and vaginal (urogenital) flora of healthy women. Specific probiotics benefit healthy urogenital systems. They resist attachment of undesirable bacteria to the vaginal lining, and/or produce hydrogen peroxide, lactic acid and other natural substances, which retard growth of potentially harmful bacteria. Probiotics plus PACran™ may help maintain healthy urogenital microflora.*
As a dietary supplement, take one (1) capsule daily approximately one hour after eating. Do this daily to help maintain healthy urogenital bacteria.
