Clinicians Cranclense 20 Tablets
About Vitamins.co.nz Clinicians Cranclense
Cranclense is a urinary tract formula containing cranberry, designed to help relieve bladder and urinary tract discomfort. Cranclense also helps to discourage adherence of harmful bacteria in the bladder.
Cystitis occurs when the bladder becomes inflamed. Cystitis usually occurs as a result of a common form of infection. Certain bacteria naturally live in the large intestine including a bacterium called E.coli (Escherichia coli). Most of the time, our body keeps E.coli in check and it is not a problem. However, sometimes, E.coli may cause infections by attaching to the cells of the bladder, resulting in a bladder infection and inflammation.
Cystitis makes passing urine very painful. Urination is usually more frequent with a feeling of greater urgency. Sleep may also be disturbed due to the pain and discomfort, and working life may be disrupted. Cystitis generally most commonly affects women, but may affect all age groups from either sex.
How does Cranclense work?
E.coli bacteria make chemicals that enable them to cling on to the cells in the bladder where they can replicate and cause infection. Cranclense contains cranberry that can prevent bacteria such as E.coli sticking to the cells of the urinary tract lining. As the bacteria are unable to attach and adhere to the bladder cells, the bacteria are passed out while urinating, and cystitis is then less likely to develop.
Take one Cranclense effervescent tablet dissolved in a glass of cool water to help prevent cystitis. Cranclense may be taken up to four times daily if necessary to relieve the symptoms of cystitis.
