Max-Cranberry PlusTM of Natural Wellness is a dietary supplement whose innovative and complete formula helps to restore and maintain naturally the hygiene, urinary and gastrointestinal well being without any side effects.
Max-Cranberry PlusTM combines a concentrated extract of Cranberry fortified with probiotics (L.acidophilus), Prebiotics (Inulin) and Vitamin C which act in perfect synergy to promote and protect the health of the genito-urinary and gastrointestinal tracts. At the same time it can help in against harmful oxidative effects of free radicals and strengthening the immune system.
Max-Cranberry PlusTM is an indispensable partner to combat urinary tract symptoms. Its anti adherent effect prevents the fixation of bacteria and limits their ability to grow and penetrate the walls of the urinary tract thus reducing the risk of urinary tract infections, facilitating the drainage of the bacteria and regulating elimination functions of the urinary tract.
A similar effect appears to have the Max-Cranberry PlusTM in other infections that depend on the adherence of bacteria to tissues such as the prevention of gastric ulcers by preventing adhesion of the bacterium Helicobacter pylori in the stomach wall and inhibition of the formation of dental plaque responsible for gingivitis. Max-Cranberry Plus ™ may also protect against heart disease through antioxidant effects of flavonoids.
Cranberry , used in Max- Cranberry Plus ™ extract is a highly concentrated containing the full spectrum, synergistic and concentrated (50:1) of the components of Cranberry or Red Cranberry. This preparation can enhance the natural benefits of whole plant without the use of solvents, preservatives, sugars, water, flavors or colors to provide the same benefits of cranberry juice but without the calories.
The use of probiotics (L. acidophilus) and Prebiotics (Inulin) at the Max-CranberryPlusTM are important to establish a healthy intestinal balance and reduce the prevalence of pathogenic bacteria. L. Acidophilus inhibits the growth of the yeast Candida albicans, E. coli and other harmful bacteria. By helping the body to produce interferon, also increases immune function. Although mainly is a resident of small intestine, Acidophilus is also part of the protective flora in the vagina, which is key to protect the urinary tract infections. Inulin is characterized by passing through the digestive tract without being absorbed operates as a kind of fertilizer to stimulate growth Probiotics to prevent the growth of undesirable bacteria.
It is included in the composition of the Max-Cranberry Plus TM a significant amount of Vitamin C as Calcium Ascorbate which is a natural non-acidic vitamin C, which enhances the body’s immune system that contributes to reduce the severity of the infection in urinary tract and the probability of a Urinary track infection. Today it is usual for many gynecologists and urologists to recommend supplements based on Cranberry and Vitamin C.
There are some risks of kidney stones, which would be favored by the state of acidification caused by the ingestion of vitamin C in high doses. The problem is not by taking calcium ascorbate.
Max-Cranberry Plus™ is a 100% organic formula that meets a unique symbiotic formula, a mixture of probiotics, prebiotics, Vitamin C and a “Superfruit” the Red Cranberry or American cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon).

This super fruit contains over forty compounds that have antibacterial properties, nutrients and antioxidants. It also has one of the highest concentrations of unique polyphenols, known as proanthocyanidins (PACs) of type A, while other similar berries contain the type B. Studies show that PACs are the only type with high efficacy in preventing the adhesion of bacteria (including Escherichia coli), to the wall of urinary tract and therefore help to prevent urinary tract infections. The Cranberry contains fructose, a specific sugar that contributes the inhibition of bacteria adherences.
With regard to its nutritional composition, they contain no fat, sodium, no cholesterol, are rich in provitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E and vitamin B in smaller amounts. They also provide potassium, calcium, phosphorus, iron and magnesium. They contain fiber and provide only about 30 calories per 100 grams.

MAX-Cranberry Plus™ has included in its formula Lactobacillus Acidophilus which are Probiotics, “good bacteria”, scientifically known for helping to maintain intestinal health and serve as a natural antibiotic against potentially harmful organisms. This probiotic inhibits the growth of the yeast Candida albicans, E. coli and other harmful bacteria. By helping to produce interferon it also increases immune function. Although it is a resident of the small intestine, Acidophilus is also prevalent in the genito-urinary system and is part of the protective flora in the vagina, which is essential for the protection of yeast infections. Two (2) capsules of Cranberry MAX-Plus™ provides 20 mg of Lactobacillus acidophilus corresponding to 2 billion colony forming units.
As a prebiotic MAX-Cranberry PlusTM has included Inulin which is a fiber that regulates intestinal transit by promoting peristalsis, and a strong prebiotic effect, for example, stimulation of the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria.

WHAT IT DOES
Max-Cranberry PlusTM It works in 3 different biological mechanisms, but intrinsically complementary.
• Anti adherent, preventing bacteria to proliferate and do not adhere to the walls of the genitourinary and digestive system avoiding their proliferation and therefore the damage to our body.
• Antioxidant: protecting body cells from free radicals, which do not only aging, but also affect the health of the heart and blood vessels.
• Symbiotic: through the symbiotic action Prebiotics and probiotics that are combinedwith the intestinal flora and thus strengthen and modulate the immune system againstthe possible action of disease.
Max-Cranberry PlusTM containing cranberries (Vaccinium macrocarpon) is considered the “super fruit” and even many people them the “fruits of the 21st century,” due to its proven health benefits, among which include an antibiotic, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect.
Previously it was believed that in taking cranberry juice made the urine more acidic, so the bacteria were less likely to multiply. However, current thinking is its mechanism of action inhibits the adhesion of bacteria to uroepithelial cells, thus reducing the risk of infections.
According to scientific observations it has been shown that cranberry contains a class of flavonoids called proanthocyanidins (OPCs), which form a protective barrier on the walls of the tissues. They produce a modification of the form of E. Coli, making it harmless and prevent adhesion and accumulation not allowing the amount needed to successfully initiate an infection.
This anti-adhesion effect present in the Max- Cranberry Plus ™ has been shown not only for germs that affect the urinary tract, but also for other pathogens of the walls of the stomach (H. pylori) and the dental supporting tissues and periodontal ligaments (P.gingivalis). This helps to prevent the production of certain gastric ulcers, periodontitis and tooth decay.
Thanks to its diuretic properties Max Cranberry PlusTM protects the kidneys, bladder and urinary tract from infections and the presence of stones because cranberries contain substantial amounts of hippuric acid, which acidifies the urine, which reduces bacterial colonization and allows the dissolution of oxalate stones.
Researchers also have shown that taking cranberries may help to reduce the odor in urine, burning during urination, the number of blocked catheters, calcium in the urine and damage to the skin around the suprapubic catheter.
Another advantage of the Max-Cranberry Plus ™ is that for its high antioxidant power brings enormous benefits to the heart, increasing the HDL cholesterol known as “good cholesterol” that would be associated with a decrease of heart disease. The USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture), measured the antioxidant properties of more than 40 fruits and vegetables, which determined that the cranberry is the fruit with the highest antioxidant value.
Cranberries, like many other fruits and vegetables contain significant amounts ofsalicylic acid, which is an important ingredient in aspirin. Taking Max-Cranberry Plus TM regularly increases the amount of salicylic acid in the body which can reduce the swelling, prevent blood clots to form.
Vitamin C occurs naturally in all fruits and cranberry is not an exception. Recent studies in women, found that when administering 100 mg of vitamin C daily for a period of 3 months reduced by 56% the probability of a UTI. Therefore, Max- Cranberry Plus ™ has included in its composition 120 mg of vitamin C as Calcium Ascorbate which is a natural non-acidic vitamin C to strengthen the defenses and help against the harmful effects of oxidative free radicals causing cellular aging.
In the genitourinary tract, there are predominant lactobacilli, which are beneficial bacteria (probiotics) that are capable of producing hydrogen peroxide (for example, hydrogen peroxide). Max- Cranberry Plus ™ has incorporated these probiotics to keep potential intruders away, thanks to the antiseptic effect of this substance. Moreover, this type of beneficial bacteria produce a favorable acidic environment . The use of antibiotics and spermicides can alter the genito-urinary environment and result in the development of undesirable microorganisms (for example, Candida yeast or parasites such as Gardnerella vaginalis).
Another essential ingredient included in the formula of Max-Cranberry PlusTM is Inulin (prebiotics) that consists of a fiber that is not digestible by human body, but it is a perfect friend to keep it in perfect condition, since it promotes bowel movements to improve the transit and accelerating the body’s digestion, which favor the elimination of toxins quickly and improve the state of the body.
Inulin is a potent stimulator of the growth of healthy intestinal flora, necessary for the proper assimilation of nutrients by the body (for example, magnesium, calcium and iron), facilitating the reproduction and growth of beneficial bacteria and microorganisms for the proper functioning of the body, which makes Max-Cranberry PlusTM an exceptional reinforcement to maintain the health of the gastrointestinal system, which allows to aid digestion, prevent constipation, maintain bowel regularity and reduce cholesterol levels. It also prevents the accumulation of triglycerides in the liver, so improving the health.
As a dietary supplement is advisable to take it twice a day at the same time (so make sure not to miss intake) with a glass of water, preferably with meals.
In cases of recurrent urinary tract infections is advisable to take MAX- Cranberry Plus ™ several times a year for a month (take 60 capsules) to get E. coli does not return to repopulate the urinary tract. Repeat this take 3 or 4 months a year can be a good choice.
The MAX-Cranberry Plus ™ can be used as a preventive in cases of recurrent cystitis, or directly as treatment with antibiotics.
Unlike what happens with antibiotics, bacteria do not develop resistance to Red Cranberry, and it can be used whenever necessary, as a treatment or supplement thereto, without affecting the structure of the intestinal flora (which contains a large part of our immune system)
As a further advice to taking two capsules a day MAX-Cranberry Plus ™ is recommended to drink at least 2 liters of water and avoid anything that might irritate the kidneys (snuff, foods high in salt, pepper, …).
In prolonged treatment with cranberries it should be kept in mind that if the person has a history in the formation of calcium oxalate kidney stones may show increased risk of forming new stones because they increase levels of oxalate in the urine.
Always consult the doctor when you are taking anticoagulants, antivirals, diuretics, or medications that might interact with cranberries.
