Ridgecrest Herbals UTIntensive - 60 Vegetarian Capsules
Ridgecrest Herbals UTIntensive Urinary Tract Insurance is the most comprehensive formula of its kind. Developed to support normal function of the entire urinary system, Ridgecrest Herbals UTI Intensive combines two patented and clinically proven ingredients, UTIRose and PACran, together with a unique blend of supporting herbs and nutrients. Ridgecrest Herbals UT Intensive unique combination works synergistically to help put urinary systems in top shape and keep them there.
UTIRose is a hibiscus extract has been shown to reduce bacteria levels in the urinary tract in just 24 hours, and to keep them low with regular use. UTIRose is the fastest acting natural ingredient available for urinary tract health.
Cranberries have long been used to support urinary tract health, and the proanthocyanidin (PAC) compounds in cranberries make harder for bacteria to adhere to urinary tract tissues. PACran is a potent cranberry extract with the highest proanthocyanidin (PAC) levels available. A recent study showed that North American cranberry A-link PACs are the only PACs known that provide bacterial anti-adhesion activity.
The urinary tract is an important bodily system, but it rarely gets the credit it deserves. It begins in the kidneys, with millions of tiny filters called nephrons, that filter 30-50 gallons of blood every day. The kidneys eliminate excess fluid, metabolites, unused vitamins and minerals, drugs, and other chemical wastes from the bloodstream, draining through the ureters into the bladder, which is controlled by sphincter muscles, and finally through the urethra and out of the body.
The urinary tract is normally a sterile environment, free of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. However, at times certain bacteria (most commonly E. coli) can enter the urinary tract via the urethra, attach to the tissues, and multiply, causing urinary tract infections. Urinary tract infections are the second most common kind of infection in the body (after the common cold) and account for about 8.3 million doctor visits per year! Urinary tract infections can cause scar tissue, which can help subsequent reinfections get an easier foothold. Other problems may occur within the kidneys and urinary tract, such as kidney stones. Any abnormality that obstructs the normal flow of urine creates a possible environment for infection.
Keeping the urinary tract clean and healthy requires regular bathing or showering, and protection from outside contaminants wherever possible. Eating a wholesome diet, and drinking plenty of good clean water on a daily basis, will also help to flush the urinary tract regularly. It is also best not to put off the urge to urinate until the bladder is completely full, because this can put these important organs under stress.

Ridgecrest Herbals Philosophy
At RidgeCrest Herbals, their goal is to make the best natural remedies available anywhere, remedies that make a real difference. They summarize our unique approach in three words: Eclectic, Innovative, and Effective.
Eclectic means choosing the best from a variety of disciplines or styles. Ridgecrest Herbals doesn’t believe that any one health discipline holds a monopoly on effectiveness. Many health problems are nearly universal throughout the world, and have been successfully treated in many different ways across time and in different cultures. They search the world for natural ingredients and methods that show promising results, and don’t limit ourselves to any one culture or discipline.
In many cases, traditional methods can be improved with modern insights. By the same token, approaches used in one discipline can be refined by concepts from another. But such innovations must be approached carefully to preserve the traditional benefits. Some of Ridgecrest Herbals' innovations include homeoactive encapsulation, a way of combining homeopathics with herbs or nutrients for maximum potency, and Portfolio formulation, a way of using small doses of many ingredients to increase the safety and efficacy of herbal formulations.
Any natural remedy must be measured by its results. Ridgecrest Herbals' formulas work very well – or they go back to the drawing board. Many of their formulas are best-sellers in their category. They stand behind their products absolutely, and every day, they build their reputation for “Guaranteed Results, Naturally!”.
Many of their products work so fast (within a day). Others may take days, or even weeks to produce noticeable results. But whether they work in hours, days, or weeks, Ridgecrest Herbals always stands behind their products.
About Ridgecrest Herbals
Ridgecrest Herbals, Inc. (RidgeCrest), a Utah corporation, has deep roots in the natural products industry. Started in 1986 as Creative Marketing, a consulting and telemarketing company, over the years it evolved into a manufacturer and distributor of over-the-counter (OTC) herbal medicines and other herbal formulations, sold primarily to natural healing professionals (chiropractors, midwives, and naturopaths). But in 1994, after foundering in the professional market, new management and capital came into the company, the company was launched in a new direction, and the company was reincorporated in its present form. To reflect the changes in function of the company, the name was changed to Ridgecrest Herbals in 1996.
Clyde StClair was one of the new founders of the company. In 1994, Clyde had over 30 years experience in supplement manufacturing, wholesaling, and retailing. At that time, he was working as a consultant to a California company that had acquired Creative Marketing’s line of herbal remedies. This herbal products division was losing money, and Clyde was hired to help evaluate the company’s options. Clyde realized that the product line had little hope in the professional market, which was small and fragmented, but might have a better chance in health food stores. But the change would require a complete overhaul of the product line and marketing channels, and the existing company had no stomach for that kind of risk. He needed an experienced partner to help him accomplish the plan.
Paul Warnock, the other new founder, was consulting with the same California company, with a 30-year background in corporate finance, accounting, and operations, especially corporate turnarounds. Clyde and Paul made an offer to purchase the problem product line and retool it for the health food market, and their offer was gratefully accepted. Together they founded RidgeCrest Herbals in 1994, with Clyde handling the marketing, and Paul managing the operations and accounting.
By 1998, RidgeCrest Herbals had established ClearLungs as the best-selling natural lung product in the US market, and a number of other products were also category leaders. But in 2001, a series of health problems caused the two partners to withdraw somewhat from the business, and they brought in an outside sales management firm, and Paul’s son Matt as Chief Operations Officer. In 2003, Matt became VP of Marketing as well as COO, and he was appointed President in 2005. Matt and Paul bought out Clyde’s interest in 2007, and Clyde passed away from Parkinson’s disease in 2010.
Since 2005, the company has consistently grown its product line and revenues, moving to a new facility with room for more expansion in 2009. Ridgecrest owns all rights to the formulas and trade names. All manufacturing is done in the United States, to our specifications, by highly qualified contract manufacturers. RidgeCrest makes over two dozen formulas, including both herbal supplements, and over-the-counter (OTC) homeopathic medicines with herbal support. More products are under development and testing. Today the company is poised to break new ground with natural remedies that are more effective than ever. And as always, they stand behind their products with their unconditional satisfaction guarantee:
“Guaranteed Results, Naturally!”
