What is a urinary tract infection?
A urinary tract infection (UTI or bladder infection) is an infection in any part of your urinary system. As in all things medical, prevention is preferable over treatment. Once a day CranCap contains 36mg of powerful proanthocyanidins (PAC's) to stop the UTI before it starts!

How do I know if I have a UTI?Because the vaginal opening is so close to the urethra, symptoms of UTI’s versus vaginal infections can get confusing. Accurate diagnosis and understanding the difference between the 2 different infection types are important because treatment is different. If you are suffering from any of the following, then it’s time to see your healthcare provider:
Because the urethra and anus occupy real estate within inches of each other, it is very easy to transmit fecal bacteria from one area to another. With proper care & once daily CranCap, your next UTI may be avoidable."Dr. Weston
How can I prevent a urinary tract infection?
Here are some ways that you can prevent a urinary tract infection:
How often should I take CranCap?
Are certain people more at risk for developing urinary tract infections?
What if I don’t treat this infection? Can it be dangerous?
If you have symptoms of a UTI, or have been treated for a UTI and continue to have symptoms, you should see your doctor. When treated properly, an infection of the lower portion of the urinary tract rarely leads to long term complications. However if left untreated, a urinary tract infection can cause serious long term complications:
Permanent kidney damage can result from from an acute or chronic kidney infection.
Sepsis (a blood infection) can occur if the infection, which is initially localized in the urinary system, travels to the bloodstream. This is potentially a life threatening condition.
In pregnant women, an untreated UTI can result in premature birth and low birth weight babies.
If you have been plagued with UTIs for many years, as I have, please try CranCap. This stuff REALLY works for prevention. I wish the discovery of exactly what ingredient [PACs] in cranberries thwarts oncoming infections, and what the dosage should be, had taken place years ago. It would have saved me from many bouts of antibiotics, many of which I am now allergic to, or which have ceased to be effective!
