good strategy to maintain urinary tract health is to drink plenty of
pure water every day. Unsweetened cranberry juice or a cranberry extract
in capsule form can also be taken as needed to acidify the urine. When
supplementing with Uristatin, however, cranberry juice or cranberry
extract should be discontinued because uva ursi and berberine work best
in alkaline urine.
Buchu can help soothe inflamed tissues, while Echinacea and berberine provide additional beneficial effects.*
A study on uva ursi, one of the four botanical ingredients in Uristatin, found that after one year, all 30 women in the uva ursi group had maintained a healthy urinary tract.*
Maintaining good urinary tract health is important for women and men. Achieving this can be especially challenging for men as they age and for women post-menopause. Whereas normally healthy mucus membranes in the vagina and the urinary tract would help in this regard, in post-menopausal women the mucus membranes in the vaginal and urinary tracts can become thin and dry, which makes it more difficult to maintain good urinary tract health. In addition to drinking plenty of water and unsweetened cranberry juice, supplementing with certain botanicals can promote a healthy urinary tract.* The four botanical ingredients in Uristatin – uva ursi, buchu, Echinacea, and berberine – help maintain normal urinary tract flora, soothe irritated tissues in the bladder and other areas of the urinary tract, and prevent unwanted bacteria from attaching to the walls of the bladder and urethra.*
