Bacteria can enter the urinary tract through the urethra or, more rarely, through the bloodstream. Women are generally at greater risk of this occurrence. Cystistatin is a unique botanical blend formulated to promote a healthy urinary tract. One of the key ingredients in Cystistatin is uva ursi extract, which is standardized to include 20% arbutin. Arbutin, particularly when combined with berberine sulfate, provides a powerful combination to help maintain healthy microbial balance in the urinary tract and bladder.
