A native shrub to North America. It has a long history as an aid to promote urinary health; its effects are attributed to proanthocyanidins type A-polyphenols that have powerful antioxidant properties and can reduce oxidative stress1.*

Recent research suggests that the proanthocyanidins found only in cranberries possess unique molecular features, allowing them to bind specific certain cell receptors with non-covalent bonds and promote urinary system health2.* The cranberry extract in UT Rescue is highly concentrated, and when included in the matrix of our innovative sustained release tablet, steadily provides the right concentration of proanthocyanidins between two intakes.
