Unique Features: We procure our hibiscus extract from France, a region where hibiscus has been extensively researched for its potential to prevent recurrent UTIs. To ensure the preservation of its active components, we employ a gentle water extraction method for concentrating the beneficial properties of the hibiscus flower.

Understanding the Benefits

Purpose: Hibiscus has a centuries-old history of consumption in teas and beverages. Abundant in antioxidants and polyphenols, hibiscus offers various health benefits, including immune support and blood pressure regulation. Traditionally, it has been used to promote kidney health and reduce the risk of kidney stone formation.

Beyond its immune-boosting properties, hibiscus acts as a mild diuretic, aiding in bladder cleansing. When combined with our cranberry phytosome, it creates an ideal synergy for supporting urinary tract health and eliminating unwanted bacteria.
