✖️ Most cranberry supplements contain very little PACs. This is usually 1% or less than 5 mgs compared to Utiva’s 15% concentration of soluble PACs to get 36mg effective dose.
✖️Cranberry juice has been ineffective due to low amounts of PACs and also having high amounts of sugar.
✖️ Our natural red colour with a minimal amount of fillers ensures a high quality, small amount of product to be the most effective of all!
Clinical studies have proven that 36 mgs of concentrated soluble PACs once a day is required to help prevent UTI recurrences.
To be effective against bacteria, the dosage and concentrated strength of soluble PACs must be exact. It must be medical grade and precision controlled.
Utiva Cranberry PACs is produced at a 15% concentration of soluble PACs resulting in the must-have exact dosage of 36mg of PAC in each capsule. We use a scientifically proven method to measure the precise soluble PAC concentration (called the DMAC/A2 method).
Our supplement is extracted from whole fresh cranberries which ensures we get soluble PACs from all components of a cranberry. We use 125kg of cranberries to make 1kg of the highest concentration of soluble PACs. This full source of soluble PACs positively affects gut and bladder health and provides a higher amounts of antioxidants.
"I recommend 36mg of PACs"
"Managing recurrent urinary tract infections can be complex. Antibiotics are the first line treatment but there are clinically proven options the can help prevent recurrences. When considering cranberry supplements, I recommend my patients to select a product that contains 36mg of Proanthocyanidins(PACs). The evidence supports PACs as being the active molecule of the cranberry which prevents bacterial adherence to the bladder wall thus helping to reduce recurrent UTIs."
