Fruit d`Or Nutraceuticals and UAS Life Sciences Launch Unique Women`s Health Supplement
QUEBEC CITY, CANADA and MADISON, WI -- Fruit d'Or Nutraceuticals and UAS LifeSciences have collaborated to launch a finished product, UP4 Women's, a unique combination of certified organic cranberry blended with select strains of probiotics, to support both vaginal and urinary tract health in one supplement.
Dr. Gregory Leyer, Chief Scientific Officer of UAS LifeSciences, 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.
Leyer adds that UP4 for Women has a two-year shelf life stability, due to the use of advanced stabilization technologies "The probiotics, organic Cran Naturelle and the excipients we use are also dried to a very low level of water activity to preserve the actives and the lives of the probiotics."
Stephen Lukawski, Vice President of Business Development, Sales and Marketing for Fruit d'Or Nutraceuticals, adds that "UP4 Women's is an intuitive blend for helping natural health-minded women to enjoy an active lifestyle while promoting vaginal and urinary tract health.
Cran Naturelle is 100% all natural whole food organic cranberry that is non-GMO, pesticide free, and contains no fillers, additives, or flow agents." Independent laboratory testing shows it contains the highest proanthocyanidin content of any cranberry material on the market," Lukawski points out.
Research has shown that the soluble PACs found in Cran Naturelle are able to inhibit the invasion of enterocytes by uropathogenic E. coli. "The concept that a formulated product containing cranberry PAC may reduce persistent pathogenic microbial populations, while at the same time, the probiotic component may promote a population of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium is novel and opens many new research opportunities for understanding the impact of botanicals and probiotics on gut health," said Christian Krueger, co-founder and CEO of Complete Phytochemical Solutions.
