On behalf of Algonot LLC, we are delighted to share that we have reacquired our flagship brand, CystoProtek®. We are also in the process of creating a new, updated formula (CystoProtek-Plus®) which will be released later this year.
Twenty years ago, I suggested that inflammation damages the protective mucosal lining of the bladder and sensitizes peripheral sensory nerves, driving the symptoms of urinary frequency, urgency, pressure and/or pain. We further showed that the activation of the unique tissue immune cells, mast cells, played a critical role in this process.
We developed CystoProtek® in 2001 to help replenish the two natural molecules found in the bladder wall (chondroitin & hyaluronate) with the goal of improving its integrity. The natural flavonoid quercetin was added for its proven anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and anti-histaminic effects. All ingredients are then mixed in olive pomace oil to improve oral absorption. This patented formula has worked well for many, with two published studies reporting significant benefit.
Algonot® has also developed two products that may provide additional benefit when used together with CystoProtek®. NeuroProtek® helps the body reduce nerve sensitization via the use of luteolin, a natural flavonoid that is more potent than quercetin. Because skin sensitivity is common in patients who struggle with chronic pain syndromes, GentleDerm® is a unique lotion containing aloe vera and the natural methoxy luteolin that can be used topically to reduce discomfort.
More than ever, persons who struggle with bladder irritation need support. We remain committed to our motto, “Let Nature Help You Be Your Best®.” As we move forward, we promise to keep our customers informed of the latest developments with our company and brands.
May the New Year 2022 bring health and hope to all.
