Symrise Diana Food introduces a clinical study demonstrating the efficacy of whole fruit cranberry extract high in proanthocyanidins as a natural support for urinary health.
It will disclose detailed information on the study findings to the industry via a webinar scheduled for July 7th at 4pm CET (3pm BST, 10am ET) in partnership with Vitafoods Insights.
The recently completed clinical study evaluated the effectiveness of Urophenol.
This proprietary whole fruit cranberry extract features a high concentration of proanthocyanidins (PACs), versus typical cranberry supplements containing low PACs or non-standardized cranberry ingredients.
PACs are chains of polymeric flavonoids that interact strongly with proteins and glycoproteins.
They have been shown to suppress the adhesion of E.coli, the bacteria known to cause urinary tract infections.
The randomized, double-blind controlled study found that Urophenol significantly reduces the number of symptomatic urinary tract infections (UTIs) and symptomatic UTI with pyuria in women with moderate UTI recurrence by 43% when compared to low PAC supplementation.
It also demonstrated that the high level of PACs in the ingredient contributed to its multi-level modes of action, from the gut to the urinary tract.
