NORTHRIDGE, Calif., May 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Celebrities like Carrie Ann Inaba from "Dancing with the Stars," Jennie Garth from "What I Like About You," Leah Remini from "The King of Queens," Natasha Henstridge from "Commander in Chief" and Misty May-Treanor an Olympic Gold medalist in beach volleyball say they discuss family, sex and health with friends. And, a recent poll by CranAssure(R), a new urinary tract health supplement that contains maximum strength cranberry extract from Ocean Spray(R), also finds women consult girlfriends about sexual and health-related concerns.

"Women often consult informal sources, such as family and friends, who provide advice, validation and support." While Kaiser agrees that friends can be great confidants, she stresses the importance of following the basics to obtain peak sexual and urinary tract health. "Urinary tract health isn't something we think about every day," said Kaiser. "But if not properly maintained, poor urinary tract function may negatively impact overall health." The National Kidney Foundation reports one in five women will need urinary tract health support at least once in her lifetime and 10 million doctor visits are made yearly to address urinary tract health concerns. For optimal urinary tract health, Kaiser recommends drinking eight 8-oz glasses of water daily and using cranberry supplements, like Nature Made CranAssure (www.CranAssure.com), which is easy to use while on the go. Studies show cranberries help support proper urinary tract function.
