Cranberry Juice & Supplements for UTIs
Question: I'm a middle-aged healthy woman who gets occasional urinary tract infections. I heard that cranberry juice or cranberry supplements can help prevent the condition. Is this true?
Cranberry has been used with some success by women for many decades to prevent urinary tract infections (UTIs). We now know that certain compounds in cranberries limit the ability of E. coli bacteria that cause the infection to attach to the walls of the bladder and urinary tract and gain a foothold.
ConsumerLab.com explains what to look for and how to use cranberry juice or cranberry supplements (including products such as Ellura®/Urell®) to help prevent UTIs. Get the Full Answer >>
