Cystex Better Bladder Challenge and Me

I've been chosen to participate in the 12 week Cystex Better Bladder Challenge.  And this is one challenge that I'm happy to be apart of.
You might remember me mentioning that I've had several UTI (urinary tract infections) over the past year.  So when I saw a Cystex giveaway I jumped on it and was lucky enough to win.  Cranberry juice is the best thing you can drink to help in the battle against the the dreaded UTI.  One problem though, I hate cranberry juice and can't stand to drink it.  So it's like they've finally developed the perfect product for me. 

Once I realized how much I liked their product, I went straight to them and let them know  a couple of times.  After that they contacted me and asked if I'd like to apply to be apart of there upcoming challenge.  Well.....Yeah!!!  So today I start my 12 week challenge.  My bladder and I are looking forward to being better.   I hope you follow the challenge along with me.  I'll be recording my results with a weekly questionnaire as well as posting about my results and even commenting by video.
Cystex has provided me with 3 bottles of Cystex® Liquid Cranberry Complex with Proantinox®  and a measuring cup and spoon to get me through the first 6 weeks. 


  1. Take a look at http://myellura.com. ellura is one of the top selling products sold though out Europe to prevent UTIs. You just have to go to the website and do the reading. I have tried Cystx with little to not effect... ellura really works!!! Oh, be sure to take a look the product comparison chart. It is sort of hard to find... They should move it to the home page. Anyway, scroll to the bottom of the page and type comparison in the search box. It should be the 1st hit. The list does not have Cystx so I emailed them and they said the Cystx (PACs) are less than 2mg per dose... Way to low to be effective.

  2. Hmmmm. . .very interested in your results!! I'm a bit of an older Diva Mama (59 ~ Yikes Stripes, but very young at heart ~ ha!!) I was having so many UTI's 3 yrs ago - and also every time we traveled! A pain in the butt! I am taking "Over Active Bladder" medicine and have not had one UTI in last 3 yrs. But I'm very interested in taking something more natural, so keep us posted!

  3. I am one of Jann's friends, she told me to check you out after you gave her an award. I love your blog and I am very interested in this challenge you are doing. I have had several UTI's just in this last year. I love cranberry juice, but you can't drink enough of it to do the job, at least I can't. I take the cranberry supplement in the capsules. I will keep checking to see what results you are getting. It will be great to get more information on this pain in the butt subject.

  4. Hi Ollie and Peg. I'm glad your going to be following along with me. UTI's are the absolute worse. I just want to cry when I get them. I know that the Cystex works because I still haven't been able to give up my coca-cola and pepsi but since I've been using the Cystex Liquid Cranberry Complex I haven't had one. What's great about this challenge is now I can offically track it and see the results for myself. So keep sticking around girls. I know this problem plaques a lot of us.

    Have a wonderful day...Tracy :)
