istivan evitar infecciones urinarias nutracéutico

Natural supplements to prevent UITs are an increasingly popular choice for people looking to relieve symptoms and prevent recurrences of this annoying condition.

UTIs, also known as cystitis or urinary tract infections (UTIs), occur when bacteria that normally inhabit the bowel or genital area enter the bladder and multiply, causing inflammation, pain, burning during urination and frequent urination, and frequent need to go to the bathroom.

Istivan: a real and effective alternative to antibiotics

In the case of acute cystitis, antibiotic treatment is unavoidable. But as a preventive against recurrence, which is so frequent in this pathology, it is not advisable to maintain antibiotic treatment over time. Why? Because they have certain disadvantages, such as side effects, bacterial resistance, and imbalance of the intestinal flora.

As a preventive treatment, it is better to use certain natural supplements that can help fight bacteria, strengthen the immune system and restore the balance of the microbiota.

From Lanier Pharma, we have formulated Istivan, a natural supplement that incorporates the best natural ingredients to fight cystitis. These substances have numerous clinical studies proving their efficacy in cases of urinary tract infections.

Cranberry is the star ingredient when it comes to cystitis

It is one of the best-known and most-studied natural remedies for UTIs. It contains substances called proanthocyanidins that prevent bacteria from adhering to the walls of the bladder and facilitate their elimination through urine.

It also has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that benefit urinary health.


It is a type of simple sugar found in some fruits, such as apples or cranberries.

D-mannose acts in a similar way to cranberry, preventing bacteria from sticking to the bladder and promoting their expulsion.

It is especially effective against Escherichia coli bacteria, which is responsible for most UTIs.

Lactobacillus rhamnosus, the most effective probiotic against cystitis

Probiotics are beneficial microorganisms that live in the intestine and in other parts of the body, such as the vagina or the urethra. They help maintain the balance of flora and prevent the overgrowth of pathogenic bacteria, as well as help to prevent and treat UTIs by boosting the immune system, competing with harmful bacteria, and producing antibacterial substances.

Not all probiotics work against cystitis, but Lactobacillus rhamnosus has been shown to be particularly effective in cases of UTIs.

It acts on Escherichia coli at two levels: it makes it difficult for the harmful bacteria to attach to the walls of the urinary tract, and it activates the immune defenses so they can fight the infection.

Those used in our formulations are gastroprotective, i.e. treated so that they do not die when they pass through stomach acids. Only in this way can they actively reach the intestine and colonize it to exert their beneficial action.

In addition, they include two other components:

Vitamin C: it is an essential vitamin for the functioning of the immune system and defense against infections. It also has an acidifying effect on urine, which hinders the growth and survival of bacteria.

Hibiscus sabdariffa, also known as Hibiscus or Jamaican Rose, has excellent antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action. They also acidify the urine, creating a less favorable bacterial growth environment.

Istivan has been formulated to take advantage of the synergy of all these powerful substances, seeking to enhance the anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, acidifying, and diuretic properties. We are committed to a natural, effective, and safe supplement.

You can also carry out a series of simple actions to prevent this infection. Some of them are drinking plenty of water, urinating frequently, wiping from front to back when going to the bathroom, wearing cotton underwear, and avoiding irritating products for the genital area.
