The Ellura Difference

Ellura contains an extract of cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon). Proanthocyanidins (PACs) have been identified as the likely active component in cranberries. These PACs support urinary tract health by helping to prevent ‘bad’ bacteria from sticking to the urinary tract wall, assisting your body to flush it out naturally.2 

Each Ellura capsule delivers 36 mg* of bioactive PACs, which is the therapeutic daily dose to help reduce the frequency of recurrent cystitis.  And it's this standardised amount of PACs found in each cap of Ellura that has been tested in a number of clinical trials and research studies.2,3,5  So taking Ellura can help maintain urinary tract health and may help to reduce the frequency of recurring cystitis.
