Cran-C-Plex capsules may be a beneficial
nutritional supplement for individuals who wish to enhance urinary
tract health through the natural benefits of this cranberry juice
Cranberry juice has been recognized over
the past few decades for its useful role in supporting urinary tract
health. Initially its beneficial properties were attributed to its
ability to acidify urine due to its content of organic acids, such as
benzoic, malic, quinic, ellagic, shikimic, and citric acids. Metabolism
of benzoic acid presumably produces a significant amount of hippuric
acid, suggested to be bacteriostatic for Escherichia coli.
Nevertheless, recent research indicates that other mechanisms may be
These bioactive components of the cranberry
(Vaccinium macrocarpon) may support the urinary tract by inhibiting
adherence of pathogenic bacteria to urinary epithelial cells and their
subsequent proliferation and infection. Bacteria can adhere to
epithelial cells via molecules called adhesins, produced by fimbriae,
proteinaceous fibers on the bacterial cell surface. It appears that two
components of cranberry inhibit bacterial adhesion: fructose and
Fructose, a sugar typically found in fruit,
has been suggested to inhibit adherence of E. coli with type 1
fimbriae, while cranberry proanthocyanidins have been shown to prevent
P-fimbriated E. coli from adhering to urinary tract cells. The vitamin
C in Cran-C-Plex augments the natural antioxidant power of these
