Cranberries have been widely used for decades to prevent urinary tract infections. The red fruits contain special and rare flavonoids. These type-A proanthocyanidins can prevent bacteria such as Eschericherichia coli, the most common cause of bladder infections, from sticking to the bladder walls. This may help prevent infections.
A recently published Cochrane review provides a comprehensive overview of the current evidence for cranberry in preventing recurrent urinary tract infections. The meta-study concludes that cranberry products can help prevent symptomatic UTIs
in women with frequent UTIs, in children with UTIs and in people in people susceptible to UTIs following an intervention.
We offer cranberry in these specifications.
