CellFend - Fermented Cranberry Extract
All of us have heard our fair share of old wives’ tales pertaining to medicinal and wellness practices, some which have merit, others which are totally baseless, but entertaining nonetheless!
One such remedy is the consumption of cranberry juice to help with urinary tract health. None of us are really sure why this works, but consume cranberry juice regardless!
Well, it turns out that there’s real science behind this.
Type-A Proanthocyanidins (A-PACs) are a specific type of flavonoid found in cranberries. The specific mechanism in which A-PACs help support urinary tract health is through their anti-adhesion activity; it’s more difficult for the bacteria to adhere to the cells lining the urinary tract and bladder, meaning the bacteria are more likely to be flushed out, creating a healthier environment.
However, not all cranberry supplements are created equal…! Many cranberry supplements are misleading, and reference their equivalency in weight to fresh cranberries or glasses of juice, making them sound impressive. Some companies go a bit further in detail, and talk about Proanthocyanidins (PACs), but fail to mention the actual type or amount. The most important metric to look for is the amount of Type-A Proanthocyanidins (A-PACs) per serving.
So we decided to create a high quality cranberry supplement, utilizing a natural fermentation process to increase the amount of beneficial bioactive substance and bioavailability.
Each 1,000 mg serving (two 500mg vegan capsules) of our Fermented Cranberry Extract contains 10%, or 100 mg of Type-A Proanthocyanidin (A-PACs). Our product undergoes rigorous and detailed Third Party Lab Testing, to make sure our ingredients are consistently of the highest quality and purity (greater than 99%).
