How can MITOMAX® UH Improve Your Pet's Urinary Health?

Updated: May 21


Cranberry Powder Ingredient in MITOMAX® UH - Plant-Based Probiotic

MITOMAX® UH is the choice probiotic for urinary health in domestic animals. Unlike other probiotic supplements, MITOMAX® UH contains cranberry powder, a well-documented urinary support ingredient. Cranberry powder is lauded as a urinary miracle ingredient for both humans and animals. It’s renowned for its potential to support urinary systems and prevent infections, particularly urinary tract infections, also known as UTIs (Jepson, 2000). This natural remedy has garnered interest due to its rich content of bioactive compounds, primarily proanthocyanidins, which play a crucial role in promoting urinary health in both humans and animals (Hisano, 2012).

 

Supporting Urinary Health with Cranberry Powder: The Role of Proanthocyanidins


Supporting Urinary Health with Cranberry Powder

The proanthocyanidins found in cranberry powders help to support the urinary system in a variety of ways. The most effective way is how proanthocyanidin can help prevent bacteria from attaching to the walls of the urinary tract, particularly E. coli. The proanthocyanidins in cranberries interfere with the attachment of bacteria to the urinary tract lining, making it more challenging for them to establish an infection. This anti-adhesive property is essential in reducing the risk of UTIs in animals, which commonly occur when bacteria adhere to the walls of the urethra and bladder (Hisano, 2012).


Additionally, cranberry powder is believed to possess anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which can benefit the urinary health of animals. Inflammation in the urinary tract can exacerbate the symptoms of infections and contribute to long-term damage. The antioxidants present in cranberries can help reduce this inflammation (Cai, 2019).

Fighting Kidney Challenges: The Dual Support of MITOMAX® UH and Mito-5051® Probiotics


But cranberry powders aren’t the only way that MITOMAX® UH offers urinary tract support. Turning to the revolutionary Mito-5051® probiotics, the use of a probiotic strain may also support those suffering from chronic kidney diseases, also known as CKD (Fagundes, 2018). These beneficial microorganisms are widely recognized for supporting digestive health in animals, but research shows that through their involvement in the metabolism of ammonia derived from protein digestion, they may also help those with CKD. Ammonia is a waste product generated during the breakdown of proteins in both humans and animals, and its accumulation can pose challenges - for those with healthy kidneys, their kidneys can process and remove ammonia particles, but this can be difficult for those with compromised kidney function (Tian, 2022).


The probiotic strain found in  MITOMAX® UH , Pediococcus (Lin, 2012) has been studied for their ability to influence ammonia metabolism in animals. These beneficial bacteria residing in the gut can enhance the breakdown of urea, a precursor to ammonia, into less toxic compounds and easier to process. By promoting the efficient conversion of ammonia into less harmful substances, probiotics may help reduce the overall burden on the kidneys in managing ammonia levels in animals, helping with CKD and other kidney-related illnesses.


 

While research in these areas is ongoing for animals, incorporating these elements into the diets of animals under the guidance of a veterinary professional may be considered as part of a holistic approach to support their well-being. This makes a probiotic supplement like MITOMAX® UH that uses both powerful probiotics and cranberry powders in its formula, a top-of-the-line choice for your pet’s urinary and kidney health.
