Cranberry Forte contains a synergistic combination of herbs and vitamins that have been used traditionally for support of healthy urinary tract function. Cranberry may assist in preventing urinary tract infections by preventing bacteria from adhering to the walls of the urinary tract, and may help prevent struvite crystal formation. Uva Ursi is a stong astringent and helps reduce inflammation in the urinary tract. Buchu Leaf has mild diuretic and antiseptic properties and may aid in the elimination of debris, mucous, and uric acid from the kidneys; and also soothes and strengthens the urinary system. Echinacea provides anti-microbial and immune boosting properties. Horsetail has anti-microbial, astringent and diuretic properties helpful for a variety of urinary tract problems. Mannose is a naturally-occurring sugar compound that absorbs differently than most sugars and does not affect blood glucose levels. Mannose adheres to the bacteria in the urinary tract system causing it to be expelled in the urine before it can cause infection.
