Utiva, by Szio+, UTI Prevention Supplement - Doctor Recommended

Most cranberry products do not mention they have Proanthocyanidins as there is an insignificant amount. Utiva UTI Control Supplement contains 36mg of PACs in each capsule at a 15% concentration providing excellent anti-adhesion capabilities.

What does that mean? It means that there is a clinically proven supplement that is backed by science.

Not all cranberry supplements are the same

As awareness about the importance of PACs in both consumer and professional markets continues to grow, here are a few statements from experts in the field of recurrent urinary tract infections.

"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."

"Natural remedies can help with reducing UTIs. Although cranberries have been reviewed, it is important to check for 36mg of Proanthocyandins (PACs) within the supplement. These are the active molecules from within cranberries that help to keep bacteria from adhering to your urinary tract and bladder wall. Given the impact that recurrent UTIs can have on a one's life, patients should choose products that are supported by scientific evidence."

"Natural products, like cranberries, can aid in reducing the number of UTI recurrences. Not all cranberry products are the same and attention should be given to those with the right amount of the active ingredient from the cranberry (Proanthocyanidins). These are still not a cure but have some evidence to show a reduction in UTIs and can help minimize the need for prophylactic antibiotic usage."
