PACran® Cranberry Powder Clinically Shown to Help Prevent UTIs

Cranberry juice has been used for centuries as a folk remedy for urinary tract infections (UTI). A recent study adds to the growing amount of scientific research supporting that practice.

The study was conducted by the Department of Urology, University Hospital in Olomouc, Czech Republic. It was published on July 29, 2011 in Nutrition Horizon.

Every day over the course of 6 months, 79 UTI prone women received 500mg of PACran® (a premium whole cranberry powder) while another group of 86 women were given a placebo. At the conclusion of the study, the placebo group had reported 22 UTIs while the PACran® group reported only 11 infections.

The PACran group also reported a reoccurrence rate of 14.2% while the placebo group had a reoccurrence rate of 25.7%. In other words, the PACran® group experienced 44.7% less recurrences compared to the placebo group.

This study reinforces the data from previous studies suggesting that PACran® is an effective treatment for UTIs. Science has shown that cranberries contain unique A-type proanthocyanidins (PACs) that provide bacterial anti-adhesion properties. PACs help promote urinary tract, gastrointestinal and oral health.

The natural vitamins, minerals, dietary fibers and antioxidants found in cranberries have many other health benefits, including protection against heart disease, cancer and inflammatory diseases.
