SunCran® FAQ

What is SunCran?

SunCran is a turnkey solution that blends two all-natural and science-backed ingredients – Taiyo’s Sunfiber soluble guar fiber and Fruit d’Or’s high-potency cranberry juice powder – into a single premium formula. It provides the anti-adhesion benefits of cranberries with the potent prebiotic effects of Sunfiber for a synergistic dual-action urinary tract health benefit, all without added sugar.*

What are the benefits of SunCran?

SunCran is a dual-action formula that supports both gut and urinary tract health.* SunCran can affect urinary health in two different ways by first improving the gut microbiome, often the source of pathogens that lead to urinary tract infections, and second by promoting anti-adhesion of pathogenic E. coli in the urinary tract. These synergistic benefits of SunCran set it apart from other cranberry and fiber products.

SunCran does not contain added sugars, artificial sweeteners, maltodextrin or artificial colors.

What are soluble proanthocyanidins (PACs)?

Proanthocyanidins (PACs) are the powerhouses behind cranberry nutrition. SunCran’s PACs are DNA tested for authenticity and standardized for quality, purity and potency. They are clinically shown to help support urinary tract health. PACs bind to pathogenic E. coli bacteria. This impairs their ability to adhere to cell walls. Bacteria are simply flushed out before leading to problems.*

What is prebiotic guar fiber?

Guar fiber is a water-soluble carbohydrate derived from the guar plant. Prebiotic fibers promote a healthy gut flora and provide digestive support without excess gas or bloating.* Sunfiber, the prebiotic guar fiber used in SunCran, serves as the carrier for SunCran’s all-natural cranberry juice powder. This eliminates the need for maltodextrin or other unwanted carriers while delivering impressive scientifically-backed health benefits.

Has SunCran been scientifically tested?

Yes, research has clearly demonstrated how the PACs in SunCran influence pathogenic E. coli bacteria. The mechanisms of anti-adhesion and anti-invasion are thought to influence the ability of E. coli to cause urinary tract infections. More than 120 studies have demonstrated Sunfiber’s ability to support digestive health without excess gas or bloating.*
