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.73-77
Cranberries have been known for decades to promote a healthy urinary tract. Clinical research demonstrates that cranberries’ proanthocyanidins are powerful antioxidants that can reduce oxidative stress.83 A double-blind comparison study confirms that Cran-Max® helps support a healthy urinary tract.84 Each Life Extension Cran-Max® capsule contains 500 mg of cranberry concentrate to promote urinary tract health.85-96 Each Cran-Max® capsule also contains:
- The synergistic, complete spectrum activity of the entire cranberry whole fruit
- A unique delivery system that protects its cranberry constituents from degradation
Cran-Max® contains concentrated cranberry made from the complete cranberry using a unique, patent-pending process. No sugar is added. Each capsule of Cran-Max® contains powerful polyphenols, organic acids, and antioxidants, providing the same benefits as drinking cranberry juice cocktail, but without the calories. An advantage of Life Extension’s Cran-Max® is that it only requires once a day dosing!
