Cranberry & Buchu


Cranberry & Buchu

Intended for urinary tract infections.
Cranberry contains a substance that reduces the ability of bacteria to cling to the lining of the urinary tract.
This may reduce the tendency to develop urinary tract infections.
Cranberry also controls the odor of urine from incontinent individuals. It retards the degradation of urine by Escherichia coli bacteria to produce ammonia odors.
Buchu is one of the most nourishing herbs for the urinary tract and is slightly diuretic.
It also has tonic, astringent and antiseptic properties that may contribute to reducing urinary tract infections and inflammation.
As an aromatic herb it helps to improve digestion. Buchu has also been used for the prostate and pancreas; it may be useful for early stages of diabetes.
Contains cranberry juice concentrate, buchu concentrate reduced to powder before capsulation.


III. If on antibiotics or if used recently




Each capsule provides a good balance of 4 billion beneficial bacteria and is coated to ensure its sustained release in the intestine.
This product is recommended for daily use to maintain a healthy balance of friendly bacteria in the intestinal tract, to enhance the production of vitamins by the microbes and to support the immune system. This is a great daily probiotic for adults and children of all ages, particularly females because it protects against unwanted invaders that cause health concerns, especially in the urinogenital tract.
Contains the same bacteria as regular Flora Force (2.5 billion lactobacillus acidophilus) plus 1 billion bifidobacterium (especially friendly to the human body) per capsule. Fructooligosaccharide and carrot powder are added to help get the bacteria off to a good start.
The acidophilus bacillus is a "friendly" organism, which helps the body fight disease and restore health. Modern research has discovered that acidophilus kills the harmful bacteria strain of B. coli in the intestinal tract. Acidophilus breaks milk sugar down into lactic acid. Bacteria, which produce putrefaction and gas, cannot live in lactic acid.
Acidophilus also has the unique ability to manufacture all of the "B" vitamins in the system. This makes it especially valuable since there is literally a host of agents, which destroy "B" vitamins.
