- Product Details
Cranberry‘s historical use as a powerful functional food has now gained support from scientific data. Cranberry Liquid Phyto-Cap™ combines medicinal grade cranberries with stateof-the-art extraction techniques to provide a concentrated extract for overall urinary health.
Originally named "crane berries" in reference to the large birds that regularly eat them, the cranberry shrub grows in watery bogs and has been a celebrated part of medical and culinary history. Its use among the Iroquois as a blood purifier is well documented throughout early American history though the cranberry is most celebrated for its role in the first American "Thanksgiving". Playing a large role in the history of the early colonist, Native American tribes taught colonist the method by which to sweeten this unusually bitter fruit as well as techniques to preserve them for use during the long winter months.
MECHANISM OF ACTION
The cranberry is a close relative to other well documented functional food such as the blueberry, and bilberry. As such, the cranberry fruit is high in antioxidants, particularly in a compound called proanthocyanidins also called "PAC’s". The "PAC’s" are potent antioxidants that scavenge for damaging particles in the body known as "free radicals". Although free radicals are a normal by-product of our metabolism, in excess amounts they can negatively alter cell membranes and even cause cell death. The potent and highly absorbable antioxidants found in cranberry can help to neutralize free radicals before they cause irreparable damage. "PAC’s" are primarily responsible for the deep red color found in the skins of the various fruits which is probably why most dark fruits and vegetables are so healthy. Cranberries are also a rich source of bioactive source of vitamin C which supports the overall immune system.
URINARY TRACT HEALTH
Specifically, science turned its focus on cranberry by the early 1920’s when it became apparent that it contained healthful aspects with regards to urinary health. Initially, scientists theorized that eating cranberries may make the urine more acidic and therefore create a hostile environment to bacteria living in the urinary tract. Yet, modern science has shed new light on this theory. It seems that "PAC’s" play a significant role in the overall wellness of the urinary tract. In fact, some research has suggested that "PAC’s" may help support the body’s ability to prevent microorganisms from attaching to the cell wall of the urinary canal. This aspect of activity has been shown to be an effective technique to maintain normal bacterial levels in the urinary tract and support overall urinary health. Unfortunately, in order to get optimum amounts of "PAC’s" into the urinary tract a person would have to drink an extensive amount of cranberry juice. In light of this dilemma, Gaia Herbs has created a technique by which to concentrate cranberry extract and deliver them in a vegetarian Liquid Phyto-Cap™ allowing for optimum dosage without the bitter taste or the unnecessary sugar.
Since 1986, Gaia Herbs has established itself as the leading grower and producer of Certified Organic (COG) herbs and herbal products. Their commitment to certified organic herbs ensures strength, purity, and efficacy of their herbal products.
