Health Notes

Cranberry

Cranberry
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Urinary Tract Infection
Dose: 4 to 10 ounces (114 to 296 ml) of cranberry juice daily or 400 mg of powdered cranberry concentrate twice per day

Modern research has suggested that cranberry may prevent urinary tract infections.1, 2 In a double-blind trial, elderly women who drank 10 ounces (300 ml) of cranberry juice per day had a decrease in the amount of bacteria in their urine.3 In another study, elderly residents of a nursing home consumed either four ounces (120 ml) of cranberry juice or six capsules containing concentrated cranberry daily for 13 months. During that time, the number of UTIs decreased by 25%.4 A small preliminary trial found that supplementation with encapsulated cranberry concentrate (400 mg twice per day for three months) significantly reduced the recurrence of UTIs in women (aged 18 to 45) with a history of recurrent infections.5

Cranberry juice has also been found to be as effective as the antibiotic cefaclor for preventing UTIs in children who had recurrent UTIs because of a condition that causes urine to flow backwards from the bladder into the ureters (vesicoureteral reflux). In that study, the children received a cranberry juice concentrate that was equivalent to 200 ml of cranberry juice per day.6

Research has suggested cranberry may be effective against UTIs because it prevents E. coli, the bacteria that causes most urinary tract infections, from attaching to the walls of the bladder.7 Cranberry is not, however, a substitute for antibiotics in the treatment of acute UTIs. Moreover, in children whose UTIs are due to "neurogenic bladder" (a condition caused by spinal cord injury or myelomeningocele), cranberry juice supplementation did not reduce the rate of infection.8 Drinking 10-16 ounces (300-500 ml) of unsweetened or lightly sweetened cranberry juice is recommended by many doctors for prevention, and as part of the treatment of UTIs. Alternatively, 400 mg of concentrated cranberry extracts twice per day can be used.

      Comments about GNC HERBAL PLUS STANDARDIZED GNC Herbal Plus® Cranberry & D-Mannose:

      I felt a UTI coming on so I started researching online before contemplating on taking a trip to the doc to spend $30 on an office visit and another $15 on a prescription. I found this and saw more good reviews than bad. I went to GNC to pick up a bottle. WOW! I was amazed at how fast this stuff worked. UTI symptoms disappeared after taking it for 2 days. I'm still taking the rest of the bottle to finish it up.

        I was having cronic UTIs every 3 weeks and it was beyond annoying! I did all the research, saw a specialist, got on the daily anti-biotic, and nothing helped. Then I found this and thought it couldn't hurt to try and I have not had a UTI since I started using this 2 months ago!

          I use this product everyday and would highly recommend it for people suffering from chronick UTI's. I have not had a UTI since I've been taking it. It is over a year now and I haven't had a problem. Before I began this product I was in to see the doctor every 2 months and taking antibiotics continually. Thank you and I have recommended it to many friends who have the same problem.
