THE COMPONENTS OF CISTINAM® D
Cranberry: Cranberry is a small red berry grown mainly in North America and Chile. Cranberry is rich in polyphenols, such as proanthocyanidins, and thanks to its phytocomplex it has always been used to promote the normal function of the urinary tract and the drainage of body fluids , thus promoting the elimination of waste and potentially toxic substances for the body.
D-Mannose: D-mannose is a simple sugar, a six-carbon monosaccharide, which frequently enters the composition of plant polymers. D-mannose is poorly metabolised and therefore does not interfere with carbohydrate metabolism and the majority is excreted in the urine (therefore it can be used by diabetics).
Mauve: Malva sylvestris is a herbaceous plant, with pink flowers with lilac shades, native to Europe and Asia, also present in America and Australia. It grows in uncultivated spaces, between hedges and along the walls of courtyards. The leaves are collected in spring, the flowers in summer. During the Renaissance she earned the reputation of "omnimorbia", that is, healer of all ills. Mallow is rich in mucilage and has an emollient and soothing action on the urinary tract.
CURIOSITIES AND INFORMATION FOR THE CONSUMER
Cystitis is an annoying disorder of the bladder mucosa, due to bacterial infections mainly caused by Escherichia coli. Cystitis manifests itself with an urgent need to urinate, often accompanied by burning sensation during urination, sensation of incomplete bladder emptying, dysuria and blood in the urine. Sometimes, the clinical picture of cystitis is accompanied by fever, smelly urine and abdominal cramps. Urinary tract infections, such as cystitis, can be caused by multiple factors: oral contraceptives, estrogen deficiency, unprotected sexual intercourse, renal colic, diabetes and prostatic hypertrophy (in men).
In case of cystitis it is advisable to adopt healthy habits:
• drink plenty of fluids, at least 1.5-2 liters a day. To favor the dilution of the bacterial load, i.e. the elimination of the pathogen in a relatively short time
• preferably wear cotton underwear to promote correct perspiration, therefore avoiding clothing made of synthetic fibres.
• an effective remedy to relieve cystitis pain instead consists in alkalinizing the urine by taking sodium bicarbonate for example
• Some women find light, temporary relief from the pain of cystitis by taking a hot shower
• practice constant and regular physical exercise.
