Lyngonia contains a standardized bearberry extract (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi). Bearberry leaves are a traditional herbal medicine and have a long history of safe and effective use against mild urinary tract infections. About 40% of women get urinary tract infections in their lifetime, 25% thereof have recurring infections. Antibiotic free treatment options, such as Lyngonia, are important to help overcome mild infections and hence reduce the use of antibiotics. Reducing the use of antibiotics is central to limiting the development of antibiotic resistance.
Lyngonia is standardized for active substances in the extract to ensure maximum effect and a correct dose in each tablet. Lyngonia is considered a stable formulation and contains higher strength of active substances than other options. Lyngonia is well tolerated and has few known side effects.
