The advanced formula is a powerhouse of goodness for urinary tract infections, and an effective agent for bladder, prostate, and kidney health.*

The Super Blend in the Cranberry Pomegranate formula has 30 billion CFU per gram.

The formula is organic, vegan, Kosher, Non GMO, and Gluten free.


Suggested Use:

CRANBERRY POMEGRANATE — The Cranberry Pomegranate is designed to care for the bladder, kidneys, and prostate. *

UTI (urinary tract infection) support: Take 2-4 capsules every 3 hours till the bladder relaxes and urine flow improves, then reduce to 2 caps X 3 daily for several days. For maintenance, take 1-2 a day. Add Garlic as an antimicrobial agent, 1-2 capsules, and Original for added probiotics and fiber.*

Prostate support: Take 1-2 a day.  If it is difficult to urinate, take 2-4 every 3 hours till inflammation subsides and urine flows. Add 1 capsule of Phyto Power, Fructo Borate, and 1 teaspoon of No 7 to reduce swelling, and along with 1 capsule of Glucosamine & Sulforaphanes (broccoli cruciferous sprouts) to support DNA cellular integrity.*

Bloating and swelling: Excellent to help the kidneys and bladder flush. Take 2 capsules with extra water till swelling or bloating subsides (every 3 hours).*

Our favorite: The Cran/Pom is Dr. Dohrea Bardell’s third favorite product (yes, she has a list: Blueberry Extract and No 7, respectively). During travel or stressful times, the microbiome (GI Tract), along with the bladder and prostate, can easily become unbalanced (bloating, swelling, aching). The Cranberry Pomegranate is an exceptionally potent anti-inflammatory for the whole GI Tract, bladder, prostate, and even helps that achy low back pain. Take up to 4-6 when very uncomfortable, and drink plenty of water. *

The Research

Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most common bacterial infections (Foxman, 2014), often caused by Gram-negative bacteria, enterobacteriaceae (Bader, Loeb & Brooks, 2017), and more specifically within this large bacterial family, the familiar Escherichia coli (Jensen et al., 2017). In recent years, more women suffer from chronic UTIs due to the climbing rise of antibiotic resistant bacteria. As a natural alternative or a supportive adjunct treatment with antibiotics, the Cranberry Pomegranate Synbiotic Formula offers well-researched phyto nutrients, probiotics, prebiotics, and D- mannose. Studies and clinical trials find cranberries (Bader et al., 2017; Jensen et al., 2017; de Llano et al., 2015), Pomegranates (Pagliarulo et al., 2016; Heber, 2011; Duman et al., 2009), along with probiotics, prebiotics, and D- mannose (Spaulding et al., 2017; 2017a; Domenici et al., 2016), to offer effective management and support for UTI.*

Historically, cranberries and cranberry juice have long been used to alleviate urinary tract infections, with research linking the ability of cranberries’ proanthocyanidins (Krueger et al., 2013) to inhibit adhesion of E. coli bacteria (Neto, 2007). As early as 1933, research by Fellers et al. has shown cranberries to positively effect urinary health. Cowan’s (1999) seminal work on plant products as antimicrobial agents, which includes cranberries, has been cited in approximately 7,500 research articles. Studies on cranberries show not only an alternative to antibiotic but also as a daily supplement for a steady prevention of UTIs.*

Recent studies continue to observe and explain cranberries’ excellent antimicrobial properties, especially the phenol elements and mechanism that are beneficial for the management and prevention of UTI (Jensen et al., 2017; Rodríguez-Pérez et al., 2017; Baranowska & Bartoszek, 2016; Sagdic et al, 2006; Lee, 2000). As stated above, proanthocyanidins in cranberries are found to prevent the adherence of Escherichia coli to uroepithelial cells in the urinary tract (Sun et al., 2015; Rowley, 2012; Burger et al., 2000), and disrupt hard to treat biofilm-mediated infections caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Ulrey et al., 2014).*

Cranberries also pack other antimicrobial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. With their powerful anti-adhesion properties, cranberries are found to inhibit growth of Helicobacter Pylori (Shmuely et al., 2007; Zhang et al., 2005; Burger et al., 2002), suppress tumor cell proliferation and offer support during cancer treatment (Bshayee et al., 2016; Kresty et al., 2015), as well as lower markers of cardio-metabolic risk (Novotny et al., 2015), and enhance the GI’s microbiota (Blumberg et al., 2016). Cranberries are shown to be effective agents for health.*

Pomegranate has enjoyed an exalted status since ancient times, and no wonder (Parseh et al., 2012). Studies show pomegranates contain 124 different phyto-nutrients with curative and preventative qualities. The pomegranate fruit is actually considered a berry, or more accurately, each pomegranate contains 600 seeds, each surrounded by fleshy white to dark red pulp (Rahimi et al., 2012).*

With their potent polyphenolic flavonoids, pomegranates show higher concentrations of antioxidants than green tea (Noda et al., 2002; Nori-Okamoto et al., 2004), cranberries, apples, grapes, or pears (Hmid et al., 2017; Heber, 2011; Heber et al., 2006). The pomegranate’s high concentration of polyphenols wields an inhibitory effect on pathogenic Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli, serving as natural antimicrobial agents (Pagliarulo et al., 2016; Naz et al., 2007; Voravuthikunchai et al., 2005). Other microbial organisms are shown to be sensitive to the pomegranate phenolic flavonoids. Nascimento et al. (2000) tested extracts from a variety of plants in search of a natural support against antibiotic resistant microorganisms and found the pomegranate to be especially effective against Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Machado et al. (2002) identified antimicrobial ellagitannin of the pomegranate to be valuable to treat methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strains.*

Similarly, the pomegranate’s antioxidants work as scavengers and metal chelators (Kulkarni et al., 2007). The antioxidant, antimalarial, and antimicrobial activities of the tannin-rich fractions, ellagitannins and phenolic acids from pomegranates offer excellent daily dietary food supplement to enhance the immune system (Reddy et al., 2007).*

Probiotics and Supernatant are important to the health of our urogenital system. The genus Lactobacillus has been studied for their promising preventative and/or treatment potential against UTIs (de Llano et al., 2017). Three strains of lactobacillus were tested for their capabilities to inhibit pathogenic adherence of E. coli, E. faecalis, and Staphylococcus epidermidis to T24 epithelial bladder cells. L. salivarious, L. acidophilus showed a significantly inhibited the adherence of pathogens (de Llano et al., 2017; see also Shim et al., 2016). Lactobacillus species were also studies with infants experiencing acute pyelonephritis [kidney infection], and found effective in the prevention of urinary tract infections (Lee et al., 2016).*
