Cranberry Forte Protection Against UTI
Cranberry Forte from Integrative Therapeutics is an enhanced formulation combining cranberry with other herbal extracts to provide urinary tract support.
Urinary tract infection (UTI) is an extremely common condition in men and women, accounting for around 8.3 million doctor visits a year.
Women, however, are more vulnerable this form of infection, with more than half of women contracting UTIs, according to the National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Information Clearinghouse.
And cranberries have been used for generations to maintain urinary tract health.
The antioxidant-rich components in cranberries are widely known for their health-promoting protection, and the other herbal components in this formula provide synergistic support.
Cranberry may reduce your risk of urinary tract infection by stopping bacteria from binding to the walls of the cell surface.
A common cause of urinary tract infection, escherichia coli bacteria find it difficult to attach to cell membranes in the presence of cranberry.
And when cranberry is in your system, your urine is more acidic, which may also have an antibacterial effect.
Cranberry Forte not only supports the proper function of the urinary tract but also provides an excellent alternative to cranberry juice products, which are high in refined sugars.
