HMF® UTI is a combination of research-driven probiotics and PACRAN®, a clinically studied cranberry fruit extract that helps prevent recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs) in women. Approximately 10-20% of women experience one or more incidents of urinary discomfort or UTIs each year, with recurrence rates around 20%.1 Cranberries are rich in polyphenol antioxidant compounds such as proanthocyanidins, which reduce the adhesiveness of E. coli bacteria to the uroepithelial cells that line the bladder.2 Regular PACRAN® supplementation has been shown to reduce E. coli presence and UTI incidence in women with a history of recurrent infections.3,4 HMF® UTI also contains five strains of proprietary probiotics that have demonstrated superior adherence to the gut lining and natural resistance to pH and bile acid.5 Included in this probiotic blend is L. gasseri, one of the predominant vaginal Lactobacillus species.6
