Fsc Cranberry aids the maintenance of a healthy urinary tract.
Cranberry is thought to help in two ways. Firstly components of cranberry (possibly proanthocyaniclins) inhibit bacteria such as E coli from attaching to the lining of the bladder.
Secondly, cranberry contains hippuric acid which has antibiotic activity and helps to render bacteria harmless. Vitamin C is also thought to have a preventative action for those susceptible to recurrent attacks. Typically, two tablets are equivalent to I fl.oz (30ml) full strength cranberry juice, or 4 fl.oz (I 20ml) cranberry juice cocktail. No Added Sugar.
Note: Cranberry should not be used as a substitute for antibiotics during an acute urinary tract infection.
Who gets Cystitis?
Any woman can suffer from cystitis but some are more prone to this condition, for example:
Younger women (who may be prone to more sexual activity)
The elderly (who may be less mobile or have more difficulty emptying their bladder)
Pregnant women (whose body changes can make them prone to urinary infections)
Post-menopausal women (who may experience vaginal dryness causing soreness and irritation during sexual intercourse)
Men and children can get cystitis too, but this is much less common, and in such cases a doctor's advice must always be sought
What are the symptoms?
The common signs and symptoms of a cystitis attack are:
A sharp burning, stinging sensation when you pass water
An urge to pass water more frequently even though there may be very little to pass
A feeling of not emptying your bladder completely
