CranMax Cranberry Pills -- Urinary Tract Health

Cran-Max vegetarian capsules are designed to provide you with support against urinary tract issues virtually side effects free.  CranMax is filled with a concentrated cranberry extract that is extraordinarily high in the glycoprotein inhibitor.  Cran-Max has produced 97% anti-adherence activity in laboratory tests and have provided significant therapeutic benefits.  The cranberry extract in two Cran-Max capsules contains the equivalent biological activity of sixteen 8 ounce glasses of cranberry juice cocktail.

The recommended dose of CranMax for continuous protection is one capsule in the morning with water.

Chronic Side Effects
Chronic urinary problems cause discomfort to many people, especially women.  When consumed regularly, tap water contains chlorine that can indiscriminately kill bacteria -- including beneficial bacteria.  Without beneficial bacteria, yeast can grow uncontrolled creating the side effects of odor and discomfort.  The urinary tract is vulnerable because of the ability of bad bacteria to bind to the wall of the bladder and urethra.

Studies document that drinking eight glasses of cranberry juice twice a day can be helpful.  As long as the cranberry juice is continued, problems are not likely to return.  One way that cranberry juice works is to prevent unwanted out-of-control cellular activity.

Studies suggests that unwanted out-of-control cellular activity and the associated influx of white blood cells into the urine (pyuria) can be reduced by nearly 50 percent in elderly women who drink 300 mL of cranberry juice cocktail each day.

Laboratory studies have attempted to account for the effectiveness of cranberry juice and microscopic studies have focused on urine acidification.

When cranberry cocktail was given to mice in the place of their normal water supply for a period of 14 days, the adherence of  unwanted out-of-control cellular activity to urinary wall cells was reduced by approximately 80 percent.  Anti-adherence activity also could be detected in human urine.  Fifteen of 22 subjects showed significant anti-adherence activity in the urine one to three hours after drinking 15 ounces of cranberry cocktail without side effects.

In urostomy patients, urinary wall issues are common and may stem from alkaline urine.  Cranberry juice appears to acidify urine and is widely recommended for the reduction of unwanted out-of-control cellular activity.  A recent study showed that drinking cranberry juice could help to prevent and/or improve complications and side effects for urostomy patients.  It also showed that cranberry juice resulted in improvements of conditions and a reduction in complications in patients with severe urinary wall issues.

Most people would find it difficult to drink sixteen 8 ounce glasses of cranberry juice a day, but Cran-Max provides the equivalent of eight 8 ounce glasses of cranberry juice in just one capsule.

Unlike many diluted cranberry supplements, each vegetarian capsule:
  • Contains the synergistic complete spectrum activity of the entire cranberry plant,
  • Has a unique delivery system that protects its cranberry constituents from degradation,
  • Has been shown to improve symptoms of burning, stinging and pain virtually side effects free,
  • Contains potent antioxidants.
