Our 36PAC Cranberry is a great option to maintain a healthy urinary tract as our product guarantees 36mg of Proanthocyanidins (PACs for short). PACs have a special ability: anti-adhesion as they interfere with harmful bacteria to stop them from sticking to the bladder wall, minimizing risk of infection. When taking Utiva daily around the same time, the result is a natural flushing of bacteria when urinating.
Most cranberry supplements have less than 5mg PACs and unlike most cranberry products, we at Utiva will always disclose the amount of active molecules we have. In providing 36mg of PACs from cranberries, Utiva 36PAC Cranberry is a clinically proven option to help maintain a healthy urinary tract. This will help reduce the need for antibiotics, which can have negative side effects, including antibiotic resistance. We encourage you to look for PAC content (measured by DMAC/A2 method) on competitor labels to further educate yourself.
No. Treatment of UTIs is still recommended to be antibiotics due to the evidence available. Natural products are recommended for maintaining a healthy urinary tract.

D-Mannose Attack is another high-quality supplement for UTI prevention from Utiva which focuses on the E.coli bacteria. We recommend it when someone has complicated recurrent UTIs or has trigger-associated UTIs (such as sex, swimming, travel, etc). It is recommended to take at least 2,000mg daily of D-Mannose.
Utiva 36PAC Cranberry is a clinically proven cranberry extract that binds to most bacteria, including E.coli. PACs are the bioactive molecule of the cranberry and physician guidelines recommend it. Utiva 36PAC Cranberry is a simple, small, once-a-day pill taken for daily support of the urinary tract to prevent ongoing UTIs. PACs are also the antioxidant of the cranberry and provide other gut health benefits.
For those patients who are chronic and are looking for a stronger approach to prevent UTIs, we recommend taking both Utiva 36PAC Cranberry and D-Mannose Attack.
We recommend taking D-Mannose Attack a few hours apart from 36PAC Cranberry. There is research that discusses how dmannose and PACs could have their effectiveness reduced when taken together. We are investigating this further. With complicated or trigger associated UTI patients, doctors often recommend both products together with a probiotic.
Side effects of D-Mannose may include bloating and loose stools. If your patient has diabetes, D- Mannose supplements should be used with caution as they may make it harder to control blood sugar. High doses of D-Mannose may also cause kidney damage.

The test strips indicate presence of leukocytes (white blood cells) and nitrites (indicate presence of bacteria such as E.coli)
Presence of nitrites are shown in 1 minute and leukocytes in 2 minutes.
Although the test is similar to the type of urinalysis used at many clinics and labs, we always recommend patients follow up with their doctor.
