Lorna Vanderhaeghe Probiotic Plus Research

Marion E. T. McMurdo, Ishbel Argo, Gabby Phillips, Fergus Daly and Peter Davey. Cranberry or trimethoprim for the prevention of recurrent urinary tract infections? A randomized controlled trial in older women. J. Antimicrob. Chemother. (2009) 63 (2): 389-395.

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) affect 80 percent of women at least once in their lifetime. Canadian women make about 500,000 visits to doctors per year, due to UTIs. Half of all women over the age of 65 experience at least one infection per year.

The vast majority of UTIs are caused by bacteria (E. coli), which are commonly found in the vagina and/or colon and rectal area and are introduced through the urethra (the tube that carries urine out of the body). Women are more susceptible to infection than men because their urethra is shorter and situated closer to the anus. Risks that can create a vulnerability to UTIs are blockages in the urethra (due to either past infections or structural abnormalities), stress, pregnancy, food allergies, sexual intercourse, oral contraceptive use, diaphragms, diabetes, a weakened immune system and hormonal imbalances brought on by menopause. Waiting too long to pee also increases your risk. Candida overgrowth is also a contributing factor. Women with recurring vaginal infections have more UTIs.

Antibiotic therapy is the most common treatment. Bacterial resistance, candida yeast overgrowth, irritable bowel and stomach upset are some of the few side effects from antibiotic treatment. Antibiotics also inhibit the CP450 enzyme system in the liver causing an imbalance in our estrogens causing an increase in 16-alpha hydroxyestrone the toxic cancer causing type of estrogen. Furthermore, if you have recurring UTIs antibiotics can become less effective. Today many doctors and researchers are recommending that natural treatments using cranberry and probiotics be used first before antibiotics if no fever or pain is present.

Cranberries are an effective treatment for UTIs. The proanthocyanidins, also called tannins, in cranberry inhibit the E. coli from sticking to the bladder wall and halt the infection. Several studies using CRANMAX, an extremely potent form of cranberry, proved relief for UTIs. It takes 34 pounds of cranberries to produce one pound of Cran-Max—all the vital parts are used including the fruit, seeds, skin and juice. Most cranberry products only use dehydrated juice. A new study published in the Canadian Journal of Urology involved 150 women between 21 and 72 years. These women were followed for one year and those given CRAN-MAX had a 44 percent lower incidence of UTIs than the group getting the fake pill.

Probiotics, friendly bacteria, are essential not only preventing and treating yeast infections but also UTIs. Bifidobacterium longum has been extensively researched for the last 30 years where it has been proven to prevent and treat candida yeast infections and replenish the good bacteria after you have used antibiotics. It supports the immune system and lowers cholesterol levels too. It has also been shown to reduce E. coli infection, the bacteria responsible for UTIs and prevent diarrhea and constipation. Bifidobacterium longum is shelf stable so it does not require refrigeration and it is has the highest counts of friendly, good bacteria found in these types of supplements. URISMART is an affordable combination of CRAN-MAX and BB536 Bifidobacterium to help eliminate UTIs and reduce the need for antibiotic therapy with its side effects.

Health Tips to Halt UTIs

  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day. It is the cheapest substance to reduce pain and burning due to UTIs.
  • Enhance your immune system by taking your multivitamin with minerals everyday.
  • Eat plain acidophilus rich yogurt daily.
  • Urinate when your body tells you. Don't wait—this increases the likelihood of infection.
  • Wear cotton underwear.
  • Use NatraCare unbleached panty liners, pad and tampons instead of the bleached type commonly sold.
  • Position yourself on top during intercourse to reduce the amount of bacteria being pushed into the urethra.
  • Urinate immediately after intercourse.
  • Do not use douches.
  • Take Urismart everyday for prevention.

    "I'm not exactly sure if saying this product isn't effective. I say that 'cause I specifically took it to decrease the vaginal/vulvular itch I get occasionally. It did not get rid of that. When I switched back to another product that has 70 billion active cells, it took care of the itch."
