The anatomy of the female urinary tract differs greatly from men‚ resulting in the need for additional nutritional support for women. A wealth of published studies indicates that cranberry polyphenols may help to support a healthy urinary tract.
Of particular importance is the flavonoid content of the cranberry‚ including anthocyanins and proanthocyanidins. These natural compounds exert powerful antioxidant effects that can reduce oxidative stress. Recent clinical data suggest that the proanthocyanidins found only in cranberries also possess unique molecular features that specifically promote urinary system health.
In a significant advance‚ Life Extension has identified a unique compound available overseas but little-known in the United States that provides a synergistic complement to the whole cranberry’s phytonutrient profile.
UTIRose™ is derived from Hibiscus sabdariffa‚ a species native to Europe‚ Asia‚ and Africa. Scientific analysis has shown that this species’ flower and calyx (the green floral envelope surrounding the blossom) are rich in active polyphenols‚ including flavonoids‚ sambubiosides‚ and proanthocyanidins.
Of special importance is a flavonoid found in Hibiscus sabdariffa called gossypetin (’ 4’-hexahydroxy flavone)‚ which has been shown to provide support for urinary system health. Life Extension uses a unique‚ patented process in the manufacture of Optimized Cran-Max® with UTIRose™. Each capsule supplies the complete phenolic profile of the whole cranberry plus hibiscus polyphenols in a standardized‚ highly absorbable‚ concentrated form.
Each capsule of Optimized Cran-Max with UTIRose contains powerful OPCs‚ phenolics‚ and antioxidants‚ providing the same benefits as drinking 28 ounces of cranberry juice cocktail‚ but without the calories.
The suggested dose of one capsule twice daily delivers 500 mg of Cran-Max®‚ to provide the anthocyanin equivalent of seven 8 oz. glasses of Ocean Spray® Cranberry Juice Cocktail.
