Ellura helps promote and maintain urinary tract health

Most women will experience cystitis at least once in their lifetime.1 Cystitis is an inflammation of the bladder, caused mostly by E.coli bacteria.* Women are more susceptible to recurring cystitis due to the shorter length of the urethra.1

Symptoms of cystitis or bladder infections include:

  • Frequent need to urinate, even when bladder is not full
  • Pain or burning sensation on urination
  • Urine that appears cloudy or discoloured
  • Lower abdominal pain
  • Urinary incontinence

If you are experiencing symptoms of recurrent cystitis then Ellura may be a convenient option for you. Ellura is a concentrated cranberry juice extract which is clinically researched to help maintain urinary tract health and to help reduce the frequency of recurrent cystitis.

Ellura contains proanthocyanidins (PACs), which support urinary tract health by helping to prevent ‘bad’ bacteria from sticking to the urinary tract wall and helping your body to flush it out naturally.2 Each daily capsule of Ellura contains 36 mg of PACs, which clinical research has shown to help reduce the frequency of recurring cystitis in women.

*If pain or irritation persist for more than 48 hours consult your healthcare professional. The presence of blood in the urine warrants immediate medical attention.

"Confidence helps with my work. When I have recurrent cystitis, I don’t feel I can give it 100%. I found out about Ellura through a friend and I’ve never looked back. I will definitely continue to take Ellura every day."
