CRAN­BERRY JUICE MAY PRE­VENT UTIs

Woman’s Day (NZ) - - Healthy Living -

Cran­berry juice is an ex­cel­lent source of an­tiox­i­dants, which are thought to strengthen im­mu­nity, al­low­ing you to fight off in­fec­tions more ef­fi­ciently. While some re­search shows drink­ing cran­berry juice or tak­ing cran­berry pills can help pre­vent UTIs, other stud­ies have been in­con­clu­sive.

“There’s plenty of anec­do­tal ev­i­dence that shows cran­berry juice or tablets can be ef­fec­tive in pre­vent­ing in­fec­tions,” says Sue. “And at the very least, it’s proven to be a very use­ful uri­nary de­odoriser. That’s be­cause cran­ber­ries in­crease the acid­ity of urine, which nat­u­rally re­duces odours.”
