Optimized Cran-Max, by Life Extension, harnesses the power of whole cranberries to support urinary tract health.
The anatomy of the female urinary tract differs greatly from the anatomy in men, resulting in the need for additional nutritional support for women. And published studies indicate that cranberry polyphenols may help support a healthy urinary tract. The secret lies in the flavonoid content of the cranberry which exerts powerful antioxidant effects that can reduce oxidative stress and promote urinary system health.
Benefits at a Glance
- Women benefit from additional nutritional support for their urinary tract
- Studies show that polyphenols in cranberry support urinary tract health
- A unique patented process provides benefits of whole cranberry

A wealth of published studies indicates that cranberry polyphenols may help to support a healthy urinary tract.1-5 Of particular importance is the flavonoid content of the cranberry, including anthocyanins and proanthocyanidins. These natural compounds exert powerful antioxidant effects that can reduce oxidative stress. Recent clinical data suggest that the proanthocyanidins found only in cranberries also possess unique molecular features that specifically promote urinary system health.6-8 In a significant advance, Life Extension has identified a unique compound available overseas but little-known in the United States that provides a synergistic complement to the whole cranberry’s phytonutrient profile.
Ellirose™ is derived from Hibiscus sabdariffa, a species native to Europe, Asia, and Africa. Scientific analysis has shown that this species’ flower and calyx (the green floral envelope surrounding the blossom) are rich in active polyphenols, including flavonoids, sambubiosides, and anthocyanins. Life Extension uses a unique, patented process in the manufacture of Cran-Max® concentrated cranberry. Each capsule of Optimized Cran-Max® with Ellirose™ supplies the complete phenolic profile of the whole cranberry plus hibiscus polyphenols in a standardized form.
The suggested dose of one capsule twice daily delivers 500 mg of Cran-Max®, to provide the anthocyanin equivalent of seven 8 ounce glasses of Ocean Spray® Cranberry Juice Cocktail.9 Add Optimized Cran-Max® with Ellirose™ to your regimen today to harness the power of whole cranberries! *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
