Question: from Elizabeth
I’ve been getting Bladder Infections for about a month now. I drink cranberry juice and now take an extract I bought at the supermarket but I was wondering if you have something available.
I would much rather take your products if they are available then those found locally. The infection seems to clear up for awhile and then comes back again when I no longer drink the juice. Is there something else I should be doing? Thanks for your help! BTW: your newsletters are wonderful.
Joanna will answer this question. But, I would like to add something further. See if you can get some D-Mannose. This is the best product you can get for bladder infections…better than cranberry juice.
Answer: from Joanna (Medical Nutritionist for Xtend-Life)
Cranberry juice can help Bladder Infections by producing hippuric acid in the urine, to acidify and help inhibit bacteria growth.
Our Omega 3 / DHAs would be helpful as they have anti-inflammatory actions, and so will help to soothe the lining of the bladder. Total Balance would also be useful as it contains essential daily nutrients for balance and for anti-inflammatory action: folic acid, lipase, papain, betaine HCl, isolase, vitamin A, C,D, B complex, Aloe Vera polysaccharides, Myrrh, Ginger, Green Tea, mahonia grape and Turmeric; plus more specifically mahonia grape, bilberry, Turmeric, L-arginine, MSM and bioflavonoids.
Buchu is also a good extract if you are experiencing any burning sensations upon urination.
Finally a good calcium product (such as our Bone-Protec) will help to normalise pH levels.
