There has been a major world-wide increase in E. coli resistance to standard antibiotics used for UTI's.1 For UTI's, Cranberry is a safe, effective and well tolerated choice - with no significant herb-drug interactions reported.2

Many studies recommend Cranberry Extract as an effective preventative supplement for urinary discomfort. Most cranberry extracts do not supply the required effective 3600mg of cranberry extract per day.3

For acute symptoms: 2 sachets per day for 10 days
  1 in the morning and 1 in the evening
For chronic symptoms: 1 sachet per day for 20 days

Depending on the frequency of attacks, 3 - 6 courses of Cys-control per year is recommended.

How do symptoms develop?
Most cases of cystitis are caused by Escherichia coli (E. coli), a species of bacteria commonly found in the genital area .4
Symptoms4  
• Frequency: passing frequent, smaller amounts of urine
• Urgency: strong, persistent urge to urinate
• Dysuria: burning or tingling sensation during urination

 • Treats and prevents symptoms
 • Reduces recurring infections after antibiotic treatment
 • Reduces antibiotic consumption
