Fight Urinary Tract Infection With Hibiscus & Cranberry!
The Most Common Infection in the U.S.A.
Anyone can suffer from a urinary tract infection or UTI. In fact, they are the most common type of bacterial infection.
They strike children and the elderly, but most of all they strike women. Almost 50% of all women will develop a UTI in their lifetime—and there’s close to a one-in-four chance that if she gets one, she will develop another.
What can you do to prevent urinary tract infections?
In the past, sufferers were told to drink lots of water, practice good personal hygiene and drink lots of blueberry or cranberry juice. Cranberries and blueberries exhibit properties which prevent bacteria from clinging to the urinary tract. Unfortunately, there are a couple of downsides. First, cranberry and blueberry juice “cocktail” drinks are not pure cranberry or blueberry juice and both contain high levels of high-fructose corn syrup that should be avoided. It’s plain not good for your health. And two, pure cranberry and blueberry juice is expensive.
The Madam Aphrodite™ Solution
Hibiscus Extract, like cranberries and blueberries, prevents bacteria from clinging to the urinary tract. It has been used for years as a folk remedy and is also said to prevent the formation of kidney stones.
Some studies suggest that supplementing with hibiscus can prevent the recurrence of UTIs by 60% in six months. Life Extension Foundation says that hibiscus has a more powerful “antimicrobial effect” than cranberry, and suggests using the two together for a synergistic effect.
NOTE: Cranberry is more powerful in pill form and is a lot cheaper than the pure juice.Whatever choice you make, you can control or even prevent UTIs; it’s all up to YOU!
