"Once, in the jungle of Papua New Guinea, I contracted a severe kidney and bladder infection right after a miserable three days of food poisoning. Amid high fevers and pain, I opened a can of unsweetened whole cranberries and ate the whole thing, chasing it down with quart after quart of water. Twenty-four hours later, I was completely well."
Cranberries contain proanthocyanidins that can prevent the adhesion of certain bacteria (including E. coli) associated with urinary tract infections to the urinary tract wall. The anti-adhesion properties of cranberry may also inhibit the bacteria associated with gum disease and stomach ulcers.
Cranberry extract has become an essential element in the promotion of sound urinary tract health. Beeyoutiful®'sCranberry Power Cleanse™ is a maximum-potency standardized cranberry extract that is naturally rich in powerful compounds called proanthocyanidins (OPCs). These OPCs discourage harmful bacteria from clinging to the lining of the urinary tract. If ignored, these bacteria can lead to the formation of a hostile environment prone to infection and unhealthy bacterial growth.
this is the best stuff I have found to prevent and treat UTI.
If I feel one coming on I immediately start taking the cranberry power cleanse. Often, that is enough to prevent a full blown attack. I take it with the yeast assassin too.
I always bought and drank cranberry juice to get rid of a UTI... until we moved over to Papua New Guinea, where I can't buy it! So I just drink a couple of these capsules, drink a couple glasses of water, and usually the UTI is gone within hours! I am so happy that I can have the healing power of cranberry always with me!
So awesome! I have a mother in law who get uti 's frequently. My mil buys 100% cranberry juice every time and guzzles it. I am so excited to give her the bottle I purchased as a gift. I know she will be glad she doesn't have to spend the money on the juice or consume so much sugar anymore. These would be GREAT for a diabetic who suffers from uti 's.
I am looking forward to comparing how this works compared to other products I have purchased at my local grocery stores. I ran out of the cranberrry supplement I usually take and thought I would give this a shot. I already order all of my other supplements from you guys, anyway! I let you know if I love it!
I was so excited you had cranberry! And with Uva Ursa it is even better! My 3 year old had a urinary tract infection and this is something I give her daily to hopefully prevent future infections! Thank you!
I love the Cranberry Power Cleanse. I've used them for over a year and I have noticed a decrease in my UTI's. I used to get them all the time. I take one a day and when I feel an UTI coming on I take 3 a day and by the second day all the symptoms are gone.
If you have any trouble with uti's this is the stuff to get. Had some issues starting after my last baby and never ended up having to go to the doctor. So thankful for this stuff and will always keep it on hand. Wish I had discovered it sooner when my daughter was having uti's.
For the past two years UTI's have become an unwanted companion :( As I go through pre-menopause I need to drink a lot more water, drink cranberry juice (100%), use the bathroom more often, and explore other options to keep them at bay. However, as much as I try, they still creep up. Recently, one started to creep up mostly because I had not kept up drinking enough water. Since I had just purchased these, I thought why not add them to my regimen and see if this goes away. This is what I did: I kept drinking a lot of water, along with the cranberry juice and cranberry power cleanse which I doubled up a few times the first day or so. And this is what I noticed: I was using the bathroom every 30 minutes due to the diuretic which helps flush everything out. I wasn't sure at first but after a couple days I felt the feeling of getting the UTI was gone. So thankful! I still need to keep drinking a lot of water and juice but at least I know I can add these to my maintenance regimen! Thanks Beeyoutiful!
I tend to have recurring UTI's. Cranberry Power Cleanse is my go-to product. If I catch the symptoms early, I can have relief in a day. I try to include it in a rotation of supplements for prevention. I don't want to take it all the time, but I find if I take it for about 4 days every couple of weeks or so, I tend not to get the UTI's. It's a lifesaver!
My special needs daughter was having one urinary tract infection after another, Dr.s said we would have to put her on a continuous low dose of antibiotics. We definatly did not want to do that! As a last effort we started giving her 2 Cranberry Power Cleanse capsules every day, her infection cleared up and she had no problems for over a year. If I run out of the product, she gets another infection, so I like to stay stocked up!
I have suffered for several years from really painful UTI's. I had been to a specialist and told I had to give up anything with caffeine in it. My aunt recommended these. To my utter amazement, since taking the power cleanse three times a day, I have not had a UTI for over two years AND I can again have my morning tea. Thank you!
These are great to have on hand as my daughter gets UTI off and on. She doesn't swallow pills however and the powder is very tart (we've tried adding it to yogurt buy she didn't like that) so I had to put it in a smoothie to get her to take it. I am glad there is an alternative to drinking cranberry juice which she definetly won't do!
A member of our family has to self-catheterize to empty the bladder- always a big candidate for UTIs. This product fares far better than the cranberry pills off the shelf for helping to prevent them. Well worth the money when considering the damage recurrent infections can do to the body and kidneys. And it saves on doctor/prescription bills.
I have had a lot of problems with bladder infections. It was always the same story. I went to the doctor, they gave me antibiotics and it kept coming back. Ever since i used cranberry power cleanse i have had no bladder infections whatsoever. Now i feel like i can't live without them, i might as well always have these in my cabinet .
I have had many bladder infections, kidney stones and kidney infections since my teenage years. I would find myself in the hospital in terrible pain and have multiple surgeries to remove the stones. Two of the surgeries major with a long recovery. I began taking the Cranberry Cleanse two years ago and I have since had no infections and no stones!!
I ordered and used this product and found no benefit whatsoever.
My neighbor ordered the product after having problems with urinary infections and found no usefulness either. This product did not work for either of us.
I would not want to be without these pills. For years I have had trouble with UTI and end up with antibiotics, but thanks to this product whenever I feel one coming on I quickly take these along with plenty of water.
I found these because I started developing kidney stones with my 2nd pregnancy (they worsened with my 3rd). I would end up in the hospital on saline and vicadin. I knew I couldn't continue doing that with little kids in the house so I started looking for something. The doctor said that my body produced too much calcium.
I saw your products in a newsletter and they have been wonderful! I take 1 with a meal 3x a day and make sure I drink enough liquid. When I feel an attack coming on - my side starts to hurt, I take a couple extra right away and then 2 with each meal along with TONS of water and the pain will lessen and go away. I haven't had to go to the doctor for kidney stones for 3 years now. Thank you Cranberry Power!
Ever since I was a young girl I have had troubles. I now believe I have always had something they now call irritable bowel syndrome. When I started taking these, (that came in a package of vitamins for women), I immediately got relief. I would highly recommend these to any woman that has trouble in that sensitive area of her life. I also tried some cheaper cranberry pills from Walmart, but they are not near the benefit to me that Cranberry Power Cleanse has been. I will be keeping these on hand with my SuperMom vitamins.
I absolutely love the Cranberry Power Cleanse! I, too, have felt the dreaded UTIs coming on (more than once)--and right away I have taken 2-3 doses of Power Cleanse pills during the first day of symptoms. Coupled with drinking lots and lots of water, I have had to visit the doctor for antibiotics for only one UTI out of three recently. Well worth the cost of these pills, in my opinion, since going to the PromptCare clinic and getting the antibiotics cost me $125!
I had some generic "Cranberry extract" pills that I got at Wal-Mart--thinking that I'd go cheap--but these were sooo much better. I like the combo of cranberry, uva ursi, and grape seed; much more effective!

I bought these because they came in a pack of other stuff. One day I was feeling like a bladder infection was coming on (not a normal occurance for me) and took some. By noon I was feeling much better. I also have given some to a friend with a full-blown bladder infection. I got an e-mail from her the next day saying that I was "awesome" for giving them to her and they had healed her, she was better. Thanks beeyoutiful! CJ
Can this product be used in young children? What about children that are unable to swallow large pills?

I would have no problem using Cranberry Power Cleanse with my littles of those sizes! I would consider prorating the dose to 1 capsule per day for each divided into two doses. You can open the capsule and sprinkle it in a spoonful of soft food or some liquid. (I haven't personally tried this, so you might want to test it yourself!)
Now that being said, we often tell people that with persistent UTI's you almost need to take extra doses, some people take a capsule per hour to knock them out. So we feel comfortable increasing up to the full dose of three capsules per day. I would divide it over 12 hours!
