Cranberry concentrate in 2 formats: syrup and capsules

MN700-G - Cistomar

MARNYS® Cistomar is a food supplement for urinary health presented in two formats: MARNYS® Cistomar liquid and MARNYS® Cistomar capsules.

The combined action of the ingredients in MARNYS® Cistomar (cranberry, fructooligosaccharides and vitamin C) contributes significantly to the urinary tract health.

Cranberry is useful for urinary tract health both in adult women and men due to the effect preventing bacteria from adhering.

MARNYS® Cistomar is recommended for:

  • For people who suffer from episodes in the urinary tract that quickly and intensely occur. In these cases MARNYS® Cistomar liquid format is advisable.
  • For individuals who seek reducing the number of such episodes in the urinary tract, MARNYS® Cistomar capsule format is of choice.

MARNYS® Cistomar contains the following beneficial ingredients:

Cranberry has been shown to inhibit the adhesion of E. coli bacteria to the bladder walls by more than 67%. Similarly, in various studies, the use of cranberry has shown to be useful in cases of cystitis. 1,2,3

Fructooligosaccharides (minimum 90% inulin), just as cranberry, have been shown to interfere with the adhesion of various microbes on the cell walls of the urinary tract. 4,5

Vitamin C contributes to enhancing the immune response and to the antioxidant protection.

MARNYS® Cistomar is suitable for vegans.

What are PACs and the BL-DMAC method?

Cranberries (Vaccinium macrocarpon) have got a high concentration of proanthocyanidins (PACs), which are flavonoids that exert powerful antioxidant action. PACs have also been shown to have bacterial anti-adhesion effect (Yeap Foo et al, 2000;Cunningham et al, 2005), what is useful for the urinary tract health as it does not allow bacteria to adhere to, for example, the walls of the bladder.

According to clinical and efficacy studies published in prestigious scientific journals, the concentration of PACs in cranberries (Vaccinium macrocarpon) needed to inhibit the adhesion of bacteria in the urinary tract should be 36mg PACs analysed according to the BL-DMAC method. The PACs in MARNYS® Cistomar are measured in accordance with this BL-DMAC method. 

When choosing a food supplement for urinary health, pay close attention: a high concentration of PACs without the assessment method being indicated does not entail greater effectiveness. There are several analytical methods to determine PACs (UV, HPLC, BL-DMAC) and the expression of results varies greatly between one another, overestimating with some of them up to five times the level of PACs.

It is therefore important that you choose a product that counts on more than 36mg PACs per daily dose and that you make sure they are measured by the BL-DMAC method.

BL-DMAC is a standardised, specific colorimetric method to quantify the total concentration of PACs in cranberries, being the most recognised method for such assessment.

What are the major infections in the urinary tract?

Urinary tract infections have a high incidence worldwide and are responsible for a substantial share of public health budget expenses. Lower urinary tract infections (UTIs) are clinically a potential health risk and cause a large number of discomforts to sufferers. They affect both sexes, women more often due to anatomical reasons (length of the urethra, absence of prostate secretions, etc.). At least, one out of two women suffers from a urinary tract infection once in her life, and up to 25% of elderly women, recurrently. Escherichia coli is the bacterium responsible for 90% of cases of cystitis in women and also the most frequent in men. Its virulence is closely related to the presence of fimbriae, bacterial structures responsible for the adherence to the walls of the urinary tissue (Gausa Gascón, 2008)
