SUNCRAN™ NATURELLE: THE SUPERFOOD AGAINST URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS!
Cranberries have long been cherished for their nutritional and medicinal properties. Dating back to the 17th century, cranberries were used to relieve stomach ailments, liver problems and bowel disorders. Today, cranberry products are most frequently used to help the body manage symptoms of Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs). Cranberries contain proanthocyanidins (PACs) that are known to prevent the adhesion of certain bacteria, including E. Coli, which is associated with urinary tract infections. The anti-adhesion properties of cranberry may also inhibit the bacteria associated with gum disease and stomach ulcers.
SOLUBLE PACS VS INSOLUBLE PACS
Today the number of PACs are labeled on many packagings of supplements that contain grapes or berries like cranberry. These products contain mostly insoluble PACs from the cranberry cake that was derived as a leftover from Cranberry Juice production. Insoluble PACs are much less bioavailable for the human body and there is still no approved analytical method to detect the content of PACs in foods or supplements and their bioavailability. The advised dosage of (insoluble) PACs is 36 mg per day. This was determined by the French nutrition authority AFSSA in 2004. On the other side cranberry juice is also effective against Urinary tract infections although it contains much less total PACs, but only soluble PACs and other soluble ingredients from the cranberry. This means that cranberry juice contains also effective ingredients against urinary tract infections but also the cranberry juice powder. The problem is that cranberry juice formulations vary widely. The most highly studied formulation contained 25 % pure juice (Jepson 2007). Clinical research suggests that daily dosages of 240 – 300 ml of cranberry juice can prevent 50 % of the recurrences of UTIs and can reduce bacteriuria (Bruyere 2006, Gupta 2007, Di Martino 2006, Howell 2007).
SunCran™ Naturelle was tested in several studies (in vitro and ex vivo) to have superior anti-adhesion and anti-invasion properties (Derek 2018, Howell 2018). It was shown that dosages of 1-3 g of SunCran™ Naturelle were already effective reducing adhesion and invasion of E. Coli bacteria. The effects are not only explainable by the classical activity of insoluble PACs as SunCran™ Naturelle contains only soluble PACs which could be potentially much more effective than insoluble PACs or there could be also other factors in SunCran™ Naturelle which are responsible for its strong effects.
SUNCRAN™ NATURELLE AND SUNFIBER® HAVE SUPERIOR TOLERANCE
Sunfiber® provides all of the previously mentioned health benefits of soluble dietary fiber and beyond, but without leading to tolerance issues that other dietary fibers normally have.
In fact, several clinical studies have shown Sunfiber® helps improve the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome such as gas and bloating when consumed on a daily basis. The world’s leading researchers of the low FODMAP diet recognized the excellent tolerance by certifying Sunfiber® as the first and still only Low FODMAP certified dietary fiber.
Both products Sunfiber® and SunCran™ Naturelle have been certified as LOW FODMAP raw materials by the Monash University for Taiyo International in the US. The LOW-FODMAP Logo can be used also by customers for 100 % pure Sunfiber® and 100% pure SunCran™ Naturelle products or pure mixes of both materials. Customers that want to use the LOW-FODMAP Logo from Monash University on their product labels must contact Monash University to get a license to use the logo.
