UT Synergy™ features UTIRose™, a patented, exciting and unique compound designed specifically to support the health of the urinary tract.* UTIRose™ is a patented extract of the Hibiscus species, Hibiscus sabdariffa. UTIRose™ is high in certain organic acids and polyphenols, especially flavonoids and proanthocyanidins.
These compounds provide microbial inhibition (especially E. coli and C. albicans) and bacterial anti-adhesive properties. In comparisons with standard cranberry extract UTIRose™ showed better inhibition of microbial adherance and much better inhibition of C. albicans.
Featuring UTIrose™, an innovative solution against UTI
Our reformulated UT Synergy features UTIrose™, a patented, exciting and unique new compound designed specifically for urinary tract infections. UTIrose™ is a patented extract of the hibiscus species, Hibiscus sabdariffa. The rose refers to Roselle-the other name of Hibiscus. UTIrose™ is high in certain organic acids and polyphenols, especially flavonoids and proanthocyanidins.
It is these compounds that give UTIrose™ its anti-microbial (especially against E. coli and C. albicans) and bacterial anti-adhesive properties. In comparisons with standard cranberry extract UTIrose™ showed better antimicrobial activity and much better activity against C. albicans.
In an in-vivo study, patients receiving 200mg. daily of UTIrose™ experienced a 57% reduction in urinary tract infections after 3 months and a 77% reduction in urinary tract infections after six months of use.
Designed to help maintain optimal urinary tract function, UT Synergy’s blend of nutrients, botanicals, and nutraceuticals have been combined to limit inflammation and tissue irritation, and can provide a natural alternative or complimentary therapy for mild acute and chronic urinary tract infections.
