The power of ellura to block bacteria and avoid painful UTIs comes from a natural ingredient called PAC (or proanthocyanidins) that attaches to UTI-causing bacteria, so it doesn't attach to you!
The anti-adhesion activity (AAA) is the ability of the PAC - the active ingredient in cranberry - to maintain a bacteria-free urinary tract. ellura uses the cranberry juice extract that provides the highest bioavailability of PAC, which results in the highest anti-adhesion.
The PAC must be carefully extracted from the pure juice concentrate of the American cranberry to have the maximum POWER to stop bacteria from attaching to the bladder. Only ellura is made using a proprietary extraction process that removes the seeds, stems and skins of the cranberry. This ensures you get very high levels of ellura’s medical-grade PAC -- 36 mg of PAC is the recommended amount needed to ward off infection.
