Ingredients of Interest:
D-Mannose is a natural occurring simple sugar that removes "bad" bacteria by attachment and voiding. It's absorbed eight times slower than
glucose and, when ingested, is not converted to glycogen or stored in the liver
but, rather, goes directly into the blood stream from the kidneys to the
bladder. The bacteria displaced by Mannose is responsible for 80-90% of UTIs,
whereas antibiotic treatment may cause an imbalance in the normal flora.
N-Acetyl Glucosamine or NAG is an
important form of glucosamine found in the body. It is the form that is used for
the production of glycoproteins. The glycoprotein layer in the mucosal lining of
the urinary tract has a high content of NAG. This layer of mucosal cells is the
protective barrier against acids and bacteria, and it is replaced every 3-4
days. Due to
this high cell turnover rate the G.I. tract requires increased amounts of NAG to
support structural integrity and functionality.
GanedenBC30 (Bacillus coagulans) is a
gram-positive, spore-forming, lactic acid producing strain of Bacillus coagulans.
It is covered by 13 domestic and numerous international patents with others
pending. Research has demonstrated its ability to:
- Maintain proper biodiversity (variety of all
the strains) in the small and large bowel.
- Inhibit overt and opportunistic pathogens
that proliferate in high alkaline environments.
- Improve digestion by producing a wide
spectrum of enzymes.
- Utilize undigested carbohydrates and lipids
in the small bowel.
- Help regulate gut-associated cytokine
Cranberry Extract helps to acidify
urine. It naturally contains proanthocyanidins or PCOs that neutralize free
radicals and prevents the adherence of pathogenic bacteria to the a cells that
line the bladder and urinary tract. Cranberry has also been used as a urine
deodorizer as it decreases the strong smell of ammonia.
