UP4 Probiotics with Cran Naturelle Wins Prestigious Supplement Award
QUEBEC, CANADA -- Fruit d'Or Nutraceuticals announces that Madison, WI-based UAS Life Sciences' women's health supplement, UP4 Probiotics, was chosen as one of the best new products for 2014 in popular consumer magazine Better Nutrition's annual "Best of Supplements Awards."
UP4 Women's, a unique combination of Cran Naturelle certified organic cranberry blended with select strains of probiotics, supports both vaginal and urinary tract health in one supplement.
Dr. Gregory Leyer, Chief Scientific Officer of UAS Life Sciences, explains that bacteria colonize everywhere on/in the human body where there is contact to the environment most predominantly the digestive tract. "Microbial communities are associated with multiple locations on the human body, and are instrumental for our health and well-being. In the case of a healthy vaginal cavity, specific microflora plays a significant role. The concept of UP4 Women's is that it is a formulation best for both worlds -- supporting a healthy urinary tract via Cran Naturelle organic cranberry containing high PAC levels, and a probiotic blend dominated by Lactobacillus species to ensure a healthy vaginal tract. This unique product -- which provides 10 billion CFU probiotics per two-capsule dose, also has a Bifidobacterium sp. to support a healthy gut microflora and digestion."
UP4 Women's features Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus gasseri and Bifidobacterium lactis. UP4 Women's is non-dairy, gluten-free, vegan, preservative-free, non-GMO, Kosher and Halal, and is room-temperature stable with potency guaranteed at time of expiration.
Stephen Lukawski, Vice President of Business Development and Sales of Fruit d'Or Nutraceuticals, the maker of Cran Naturelle, asserts, "We are excited to be a part of this award as our cranberry was selected by UAS Life Sciences against other cranberry suppliers because of our low water activity. Too much water activity can cause degradation of the probiotic strains and affect long-term stability. Furthermore, Cran Naturelle delivers the highest PAC content against other natural cranberry powders. Together, we have created a winning formulation that truly delivers 'A Happier Inside' for gut health." Matthew Osborn, marketing manager for UAS Life Sciences says, “We have gone through a lot of change in the past two years. To continue our streak of winning this award for the fourth year in a row shows that our great quality and our commitment to improving lives has not changed.”
