Crannose(TM) Extra Strength Women's Health Formula Targets Urinary Tract Infections
Date:4/1/2008

ORLANDO, Fla., April 1, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Valensa International introduced Crannose(TM) Extra Strength Women's Health Formula at this year's Natural Products Expo West Conference. This patent-pending supplement, manufactured using novel CIT technology, combines the historically known benefits of cranberry with D-mannose, a naturally occurring, non-caloric, simple sugar, extracted from the Larch tree. The product is available in bulk, 2-piece capsules, as a beverage pre-mix or beverage sachet formula.

According to Dr. Rudi E. Moerck, President of Valensa, there is a viable and growing market for a natural promoter of urinary tract health that can affect the conditions that lead to urinary tract infections (UTIs). "Antibiotics are the standard drug-based treatment for UTIs, but they often eliminate a woman's 'good' vaginal bacteria in the course of treating the targeted infection. This situation often leads to painful secondary fungal infections like Candida that can themselves require drug treatment. The increased use of antibiotics generally has contributed to antimicrobial resistance, a growing public health concern," he added.

Dual action targets urinary tract health

During UTIs, E. coli bacteria gain a foothold by adhering to the bladder wall and/or urethra, causing infection. Crannose(TM) Extra Strength creates an environment in the bladder that helps prevent bacteria from gaining that foothold. Supplementation with Crannose(TM) Extra Strength helps to acidify the urine, while its anti-adhesion properties naturally prevent bacteria from attaching to the urinary tract lining. It provides an ideal competitive receptor site for the bacteria, creating a "path of least resistance" for it to be excreted quickly and harmlessly.

Crannose(TM) Extra Strength is very slowly metabolized in the body, so that when ingested, it travels directly to the bloodstream from the upper GI tract, and is filtered through the kidneys to the bladder for excretion -- unchanged. Crannose(TM) Extra Strength is a safe, plant-based supplement providing a healthy alternative to cranberry juice products that contain unacceptable quantities of sugar. A daily dose of just two 625 mg capsules of Crannose(TM) Extra Strength is recommended. This dosage should be doubled when a UTI is present.

According to Dr. John Minatelli, Senior Vice President, Business Development, cranberry juice has long been regarded as a preferred aid in the healthy function of the human urinary tract. "Recent studies suggest that the anti-adhesion and antioxidant properties of cranberry juice create conditions that will limit the possibility of a UTI from occurring in the first place. Research has further documented that natural D-mannose has been shown to attach to the fibrils of E. coli even more effectively than cranberry juice," he said. "Crannose(TM) Extra Strength combines the proven efficacy of unsweetened whole cranberry with the scientifically validated effects of D-mannose. This powerful combination significantly improves the anti-adhesion effectiveness over cranberry juice alone. The Crannose(TM) Extra Strength formula greatly enhances the natural D-mannose already present in cranberry, all in one low-calorie package," he added.
