Organika Cranberry Extract 300 mg Details
Did you know that in addition to fighting kidney & bladder infections that cranberry also contains potent antioxidants. It's true; Cranberry contains proanthocyanidins as well as the anti-adherence factor.
For generations, people have consumed cranberry juice, convinced of its power to ward off urinary tract infections, though the exact mechanism of its action has not been well understood.
Women experience urinary tract infections more often than man. They are more prone with the bacteria called e.coli. These bacteria are from the fecal waste. They live in the skin near the rectum. It can travel through urethra, (a tube where the urine passes outside the body) or in the vagina.
How do cranberries help in preventing urinary tract infection? At first, scientist thought that the fruit acids in cranberries inhibited the growth of bacteria in the urine. Later on, it was discovered cranberries are rich in proanthocyanidins. Proanthocyanidins are tannins, a type of organic chemical compounds that blocks the bacteria from attaching themselves to the surface of the lining of the specific body part. These compounds found in cranberries helps to remove bacteria attached onto the lining of urinary tract.
