LIFEPLAN BOTANICALS CRANBERRY 5000MG, 90 TABLETS
- Cranberry belongs to the same family as the bilberry and the blueberry and has long been valued as a food, especially in North America where it can be found growing in bogs.
The Benefits of Lifeplan Cranberry Tablets:
- Urinary tract infections (UTI'S) - women have been using Cranberry to treat and prevent UTI's for nearly ninety years in the belief that the juice acidified the urine, which in turn prevented bacterial growth. We now know however, that it is not acidification that leads to the beneficial effect but actually due to the ability of cranberry to prevent micro-organisms from adhering to the cells of the urinary tract.
- Detoxification - Cranberry has been traditionally used to prevent kidney stones and to remove toxins from the blood.
The active principles responsible for the beneficial effects of cranberry have yet to be identified although it does contain fructose which is known to inhibit the adhesion of bacteria. Cranberry also contains hippuric acid which is known to be an antibacterial agent.
