Urinary tract infections are the second most common infection, instigating millions of doctor visits per year. Over 50% of women (including many teens) and 12% of men will get a UTI, and it usually recurs.
Enerex’s new UTI X offers fast-acting hibiscus flower and whole cranberry. They’re clinically shown to reduce the ability of E.coli to adhere to the urinary tract and enter cells, therefore preventing recurrence and lessening antibiotic use. UTI X’s Friendly Trio Probiotics rebalance bacteria, and its antioxidant minerals zinc & selenium are well researched for a healthy urinary system. These components also help eliminate yeast infections that can accompany UTIs, especially following antibiotics.
Cranberries Vaccinium macrocarpon: Medical studies prove whole cranberries are required for the fruit’s power to reduce UTIs, not just extracts. UTI X’s high potency whole cranberry powder (37 lbs fresh cranberries = 1 lb powder) uses a drying process guaranteed* to maintain nutrients; it contains 50% more proanthocyanidins, the active ingredient, than other whole fruit supplements. *Cran D’Or is the only cranberry supplier verifying efficacy in reducing E.coli, with electron microscopy capturing images of E.coli that firmly stick together in the presence of proanthocyanidins from the standardized cranberry rather than to tract walls.
Hibiscus: Hibiscus sabdariffa, Hibiscus’ antimicrobial effects are immediate. Ellirose™ hibiscus tests showed it restricts E. Coli from invading urinary tract cells within 1 day after beginning treatment. Its diuretic effects also clear infection more quickly. And as an antifungal, it reduces Candida albicans.
Probiotics: The Friendly Trio® professional-grade probiotics offer Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum & Bifidobacterium longum strains needed for a healthy urinary tract, proven to enhance the ratio of good microbiota.
Selenium & Zinc: These minerals help create a healthy urethra and urinary canal. In 2013 and 2008 research, selenium reduced urinary tract symptoms, and potentially, bladder cancer. In 2019 and 2016, zinc research showed that immune system cells naturally use zinc to clear bacterial infections, and supplementing zinc produced a faster recovery from UTIs.
Know Your Strength
Become potency wise — if the supplement doesn’t have enough power to do its job, you’re wasting money. What sets Enerex apart is unsurpassed potency. UTI X’s top-quality Cranberry (Cran D’Or) and Ellirose (Hibiscus) render the highest quantity of PAC (proanthocyanidins, the active component) per dose over any other supplement: 41 to 58 milligrams of PAC daily.
Clinical research* finds that 36 mg per day of PAC is the minimum dose for prevention of UTI, reducing bacterial adhesion to the urinary tract wall. According to a recent study American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, medical tests of popular supplement brands in the US showed most contained too little of the bacteria-fighting antioxidant to have an effect on UTIs. “There is a lot of variability in quality and efficacy of these supplements, making it difficult for consumers to know which ones will work. Also, other compounds in cranberries might work with proanthocyanidins to treat UTIs. For this reason, it may be more effective to take supplements made from cranberry juice rather than extracts,” said the study’s Dr. Bilal Chughtai, Weil Cornell Medical College, New York.
The Bottom Line: Enerex UTI X’s ingredients stop pathogens in their tracks by not letting them take hold and give good bacteria reinforcements to fight these invaders.
