PACran® Cranberry Extract
One of the most known natural solutions, cranberry is well known for its ability to acidify the urinary tract, making it more difficult for bacteria to thrive. Native to North America, cranberries are most prominent in Native American herbal traditions, who used them for dressings, and they’re rumored to have been part of the first Thanksgiving meal. PACran® contains some of the highest amounts of proanthocyanidins (PACs), the main active chemical constituent in cranberries that’s responsible for supporting urinary tract health.
One of nature’s most enjoyable health foods, blueberries help gently cleanse the liver and are full of antioxidants. Their other main compound, the phytochemical anthocyanin, gives them the deep blue color and research links it to urinary tract and eye health.
In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), hibiscus is used to clear summer heat and promote hydration. Found in tropical climates worldwide, it contains citric, malic, and tartaric acids, as well as anthocyanins, which helps give it some of its beneficial properties.
First appearing in the original text of the Divine Husbandman, astragalus root is one of the 50 core herbs in TCM. Adopted into western culture as a supplement, it’s often used to aid sleep, boost energy, and promote a healthy libido. It’s also often used to promote and support effective urine flow, promote clear breathing, and help promote a positive metabolism.
A plant native to the North American continent, this herb was used in Native American herbal traditions. Considered a good luck charm, the legend goes that a Native American named Joe Pye used gravel root to address an epidemic in his tribe, though science has not been able to establish the likelihood of that story. Today it’s used to promote healthy urine flow and to support the body’s natural immune response in the urinary tract.
In TCM, Alisma root is often used to promote urination and remove dampness. Originally found in the Fujian, Sichuan, and Jiangxi provinces, the traditional uses of this tuber first appeared in the Divine Husbandman’s Classic of the Materia Medica, written around 4,500 years ago. Some modern scientific evidence exists that Alisma root may have properties that help support the urinary tract.
A bee’s first food in spring, dandelion is not just a weed that grows in your lawn. Every part of it is well-known in herbal circles to have beneficial health properties. The root supports the healthy functioning of the liver, thyroid, and urinary tract, as well as the kidneys, spleen, and gallbladder. Often used as support to the cell’s removal of toxins, the dandelion root was first known in TCM, but quickly spread to Arab, Welsh, and Native American herbalists.
Uva Ursi Fruit
A favorite of foraging bears and used in some Native American cultures for ceremonial purposes, uva ursi has a very high tannin content. Marco Polo wrote about the Chinese use of these berries for urinary tract health in the 13th century. Modern science shows it’s astringent in nature and supports soothed tissue.
After noticing the way burdock stuck to his clothes, George de Mestral of Switzerland studied the plant and invented the idea of velcro. European folk herbalists used burdock for several health concerns, and modern science shows that it’s rich in essential fatty acids (including long-chain EFA’s, which are somewhat rare) and phytosterols.
Used throughout history in almost every recorded civilization and found in Tutankhamen's grave, juniper berry is a very common ingredient in gin - which gets its name from the Dutch word for juniper, “jenever.” Used traditionally for wound care and as an antiseptic, today it’s known to have isocupressic acid, communic acid, and deoxypodophyllotoxin content.
In ancient Greece, parsley was part of traditional burial rituals. Commonly used today to freshen breath, parsley is rich in chlorophyll and is a good source of iron. It’s a popular essential oil, often used to help promote healthy urine flow.
The birch tree has played important roles in multiple cultural traditions. In pagan times, birch was the wood of choice for Maypoles, and women would be whipped with branches to ensure fertility and drive out evil spirits in a “quickening” ceremony. While used for many medical purposes throughout history, today it’s often used to promote healthy urination.
Part of the coffee family, cleaver is found throughout the world, and is a favorite of geese, giving it another name - goosegrass. Traditionally used as a poultice externally and to aid normal internal cleansing, modern science has shown evidence that cleaver may help support wellness on a cellular level in the lymphatic system. It’s also often used by naturopaths to help encourage the health of the mucosal membranes of the urinary tract.

There are certain hygienic and lifestyle choices that can help maintain the health of the urinary tract, such as:
- Regular bathing or showering and regularly changing underwear - please, please be doing this anyway...
- Eating a wholesome diet rich in antioxidants and things that make you go mmm...
- Cutting out soda and drinking plenty of good clean water daily to reduce stress on your kidneys.
- Not putting off the urge to urinate until the bladder is completely full. Both counter-intuitive and unpleasant.
- Going to the bathroom after intercourse to flush out potential bacteria.
