Cranberry and UTI. What's the connection?

Cranberries have been used as the primary treatment and prevention of Urinary Tract Infection for a long time now. Experts say that some active components of cranberries prevent the UTI bacteria from getting attached to the urinary tract wall. According to research, cranberry juice prevents bacteria from growing into an infection within just 8 hours of drinking it. The active compounds of cranberry are not destroyed in the digestive system and helps us fight the E.Coli bacteria. Also, some recent studies have suggested that the beneficial components in cranberries resist bacterial adhesion in our urinary system.

UTI is more common in women than men because women have a shorter urethra. Due to this, the bacteria can reach the urinary tract easily. UTI can happen anywhere in the urinary wall, but kidneys, bladder, and urethra are more vulnerable to it. Also, not taking enough care of your vaginal health has been deemed as one of the main reasons for UTI. Experts believe that almost 60% of women have suffered through UTIs in their lifetime, whereas the number for men is just 10%.

Primary symptoms of UTI:

  • Burning sensation while peeing
  • Frequent urination
  • Unusual white or yellow discharge
  • Unusual vaginal odour
  • Pelvic pain
  • Fever or chills
  • Feeling exhausted all the time
  • Pain in intercourse
  • Bloody urine (in some cases)

Why are cranberries suggested for UTI?

Cranberry juice, extract, or supplements are recommended to prevent UTI because it has a special substance called A-type proanthocyanidins (PACs). This compound prevents bacteria from clinging to the urinary tract. Also drinking UTI juice prevents re-occurrences and even helps you cure UTI.

However, it is important for you to stay cautious about the amount of cranberry juice or extract you consume. Having extra cranberries can leave you with side effects, especially if you are diabetic. The safest way to avoid this problem is to consume natural cranberry supplements. For example, andMe's unsweetened cranberry juice for UTI is an entirely plant-based drink without any added flavours, colors, or chemical preservatives. Along with 36gm of cranberries, this UTI drink consists of beneficial Ayurvedic herbs like Sariva, a pH normalizer; Varuna, a rich anti-inflammatory ingredient; and Trikatu, an immunity enhancer. Drink this cranberry juice for urine infection once a day; take two bottles a day to prevent and recover.

Tips to prevent UTI:

Vaginal care is one of the most essential parts of preventing or curing UTI. Some tips for your vaginal health care are:

  • Don't use too many douches
  • Try to wash your vagina after peeing and intercourse
  • Change your underwear once a day
  • Stay hydrated
  • Eat Vitamin C enriched food
  • Practice good sexual hygiene

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).
