HMF UTI is a combination of research-driven probiotics and PACRAN®, a clinically studied cranberry fruit extract that helps prevent recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs) in women. Approximately 10-20% of women experience one or more incidents of urinary discomfort or UTIs each year, with recurrence rates around 20%.1 Cranberries are rich in polyphenol antioxidant compounds such as proanthocyanidins, which reduce the adhesiveness of E. coli bacteria to the uroepithelial cells that line the bladder.2 Regular PACRAN® supplementation has been shown to reduce E. coli presence and UTI incidence in women with a history of recurrent infections.3,4 HMF UTI also contains five strains of proprietary probiotics that have demonstrated superior adherence to the gut lining and natural resistance to pH and bile acid.5 Included in this probiotic blend is L. gasseri, one of the predominant vaginal Lactobacillus species.6
Probiotics reinforce the epithelial barrier and mediate intestinal permeability by controlling the integrity of tight junctions. Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria are the most commonly used probiotics, effectively colonize the intestines, and promote the presence of beneficial bacteria to support normal intestinal function.
In a randomized, placebo-controlled trial involving 155 adults, daily intake of a probiotic supplement providing 25 billion CFU (containing two strains each of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium) for 21 days significantly and positively affected the intestinal microbiota.
