Cranberry Therapy Without Added Sugar!
The problem with drinking cranberry juice is that it is heavily
sweetened with sugar - You can end up with many unwanted calories
from the sugars used to sweeten this naturally tart juice. But now
there’s a low-cal answer to getting the protection you need.
You Could Be at Risk.
Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) are one of the most common bacterial
infections in humans. Women are 50 times more likely to suffer from
these infections because of their anatomical and hormone
differences. Men who have enlarged prostates are more prone to
these infections as well. When you have a UTI you often feel the
urgent need to urinate and it can be quite painful when you do.
Gender, bacteria from the colon, low water intake, stress, and
birth control methods may contribute to this painful infection.
Treat Infection the Natural Way.
How are UTIs treated? Antibiotics are the usual treatment for UTI
given by a doctor. But antibiotics can have unpleasant side
effects. They can also upset the normal bacterial flora present in
your intestines. Upsetting the balance of the intestinal flora can
lead to yeast overgrowth, yeast infections, and diarrhea. Try to
minimize frequent infections by increasing water intake and by
improving nutrition. To support your immune system, stick to a
nutritious diet that includes cranberry products.
Not an Old Wives Tale.
Cranberries are a highly nutritious source of bioflavonoid
antioxidants plus Vitamins A, C, B-complex, and several minerals
including Potassium. Grandmothers have been telling us for years to
drink cranberry juice to get rid of bladder infections. Now
scientific studies show that Grandma was right. Cranberries help
control bacterial growth in the urine and prevent the bacteria from
attaching itself to the lining of the urinary tract.(1,2)
Cranberries benefit men too
For years, women have known cranberry fruit juice is a natural
treatment that helps prevent urinary tract infections (UTIs).
Science has proven cranberries can help prevent bacteria from
adhering to the urinary tract, maintaining women's health(3). Men
can also suffer from UTI's especially after the natural decline of
the immune system which occurs with aging.
Recent research has found that cranberries may relieve lower
urinary tract symptoms in older men, thereby improving prostate
health. A recent study included 42 men with an average age of 63
years. The participants were divided into two groups - one group
received 1500 mg (about 3 capsules) of dried powdered cranberries
every day for six months and the second group was given placebo
pills for the duration of the study.
The results revealed that men in the cranberry group experienced
statistically significant improvements in all of the targeted
markers, while no significant improvements were noted in the
control group. Since the current medications can cause adverse
effects, cranberries may be a beneficial new therapy.
Now women are no longer the only ones to benefit from cranberries.
This study showed men can benefit from the mighty red berries too.
Cranberries are now proven to be an inexpensive, natural and
effective way to treat urinary tract symptoms and support prostate
MDR has formulated a concentrated blend of cranberries without the
added sugar found in store-bought cranberry juice. So you get many
of the benefits that nature intended but without the calories.
Convenient, Easy to Take.
Take MDR Cranberry capsules every day to support urinary tract
health and to get protective nutrients you need for good health.
Suggested dosage: One Capsule a Day. For those who have frequent
urinary tract infections to keep the urine acidic, take 1 capsule 3
times a day (every 8 hours). Dosage may be increased to 2 capsules
every 8 hours for a maximum of 6 capsules per day.

therapy such as Coumadin or Plavix should limit cranberry intake to
no more than 3 capsules per day and always consult your physician
before taking any nutritional supplements.
