Thanks to the folks at Cystex, I was recently given the opportunity to review Cystex Liquid Cranberry Complex with Proantinox:
Some info about Cystex:
"Cystex® Helps Manage UTIs...and Now Promotes Urinary Health!
Cystex® is the trusted urinary health brand that has helped millions of women manage the pain and discomfort of urinary tract infections. While anyone at any age can get a urinary tract infection (UTI), women are more prone to them (60% of women will experience a UTI), and of those women who experience this infection, 40% will have another....millions of women will have multiple infections! Those most prone to recurring UTIs now have a great, new option to help with infection prevention and boosting urinary tract health* without needing to drink all that cranberry juice! New Cystex® Liquid Cranberry Complex with Proantinox®! Safe and effective, and clinically-proven to help prevent urinary tract infections from recurring. New Cystex® Liquid Cranberry Complex with Proantinox® provides powerful urinary tract protection in just one tablespoon daily - more than cranberry pills or cranberry juice! This pleasant-tasting, unique blend is more than just cranberry concentrate - its proprietary formula also contains D-Mannose, inulin, bromelain and vitamin C - a combination designed to boost bladder health. Cystex Liquid Cranberry Complex with Proantinox also has a higher absorption rate than cranberry tablets, provides 17 times more proanthocyanidins (PACS)¹, is lactose-, gluten- and sugar-free, and is just one calorie per tablespoon. In fact, just one tablespoon of Cystex Liquid Cranberry is equal to 8 glasses of cranberry juice with much less sugar and calories! A new study in the journal Urology shows 91% of women taking the formula in Cystex Liquid Cranberry Complex with Proantinox daily remained free of recurring UTIs and showed improvements in quality of life. If you are experiencing signs and symptoms of a UTI, you can manage it with Cystex® Urinary Pain Relief Tablets, the only over-the-counter urinary pain reliever available with a dual-action formula that not only eases the pain and burning caused by a urinary tract infection, but also contains an antibacterial (methenamine) to help keep the infection from getting worse while you wait for your doctor's appointment. It won't cause a change in your urine color either."
What we thought:
I really dislike the taste of cranberry anything so I was really taken by surprise at the almost pleasant taste of Cystex. I have been taking the recommended dose of 1 Tablespoon daily for a month now and haven't had any UTIs or even symptoms of UTIs. I was floored when I read that 1 Tbsp of Cystex is equal to 8 glasses of cranberry juice!! I think taking Cystex daily to prevent recurring UTIs is definitely better than the alternative of frequent doctor visits and fees and prescription antibiotics:) ABCD Diaries gives Cystex Liquid Cranberry Complex with Proantinox an A!
