Just like any other part of your body, your Urinary Tract is also vulnerable to infections. Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) occur when bacterias invade your urinary tract and enter your body through the urethra. Bacteria E.coli is majorly responsible for causing UTIs. They are typically common in women due to many biological reasons. 

Watch out for the following common symptoms of UTI: 

  1. Strong & persistent urge to urinate
  2. Burning sensation or pain while urinating
  3. Foul-smelling urine
  4. Passing a frequent and small amount of urine

Food and diet can help in treating and preventing UTIs. Right food boosts the immune system, minimize irritation and help the body get rid of the infection causing bacteria. Have a look at the following food items that you can add to your diet to fight off UTIs: 

  1. Cranberry juice

Cranberry juice for UTI is an age-old remedy and it does work wonders! Cranberries contain proanthocyanidin which helps in preventing the infection-causing bacteria sticking to the urinary walls. They simply help your body flush them out easily. 

  1. Probiotics

You are aware of the fact that your urinary tract is a host to different types of bacteria. Probiotics are full of good bacteria like Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria that promote health and prevent the production infection-causing bacteria like E.coli. Hence, taking a probiotic will help restore the bacterial balance in the body.

Not only they can help in treating UTIs but also prevent them from happening in the future. 

  1. Honey + Lemon water

Start your day with a glass full of warm lemon water and honey to prevent UTIs. Lemons are known for their ability to flush out toxins and therefore lime juice is a must-have to get rid of urinary tract infections. They are also rich in ascorbic acid which makes the urine acidic and prevents bacteria from multiplying. 

  1. Garlic 

A natural antibiotic, garlic is one of the best ways to fend off any UTIs and make sure that your bladder remains healthy. It also displays anti-fungal and anti-parasitic properties and attacks E.coli, which is responsible for causing UTIs. You can simply add it to your home-cooked meals. 

  1. Buttermilk 

It is another important constituent for a UTI diet after cranberry juice for urine infection. While it is quite soothing to drink, it is also acidic in nature. Drinking it 2-3 times a day helps in getting rid of UTI infections.  

  1. Bananas

Rich in potassium and fibre, bananas can help in encouraging a regular bowel movement and keep your urinary tract clean. As irregular bowel movements can pressurise your urinary tract, bananas ensure a healthy bowel movement and reduce irritation in your bladder. 

  1. Cruciferous vegetables

The healthiest types of vegetables include broccoli, brussels, sprouts, cabbage, kale and turnips are full of Vitamin C, E, K and folate and fibre. They promote bladder health by strengthening body’s immune system. 

  1. Water..lots of water

Last but the most important one. Drinking water helps in diluting the contents of the bladder, leading to increased urination. This helps in flushing out the bacteria from your system. It also acts as a good preventive measure for UTIs. 

The bottom line is including healthy foods can help in preventing infections and help you maintain an overall healthier lifestyle.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
