If you’ve ever felt the pain that comes with a urinary tract infection, you know you’d do just about anything to relieve the pain and get better.
For years friends, mothers and even doctors have advised women to drink cranberry juice to make it all go away.Recently a Texas A&M Health Science Center urologist explained that cranberry juice on its own will not get rid of you UTI
Cranberry juice and especially the juice concentrates you find at the grocery shop, will not treat a urinary tract infection. Of course It can give us more hydration and may wash the bacteria from your body more effectively, but the actual ingredient in cranberry is forever gone by the time it gets to your bladder.”
Cranberries contain an active ingredient called proanthocyanidins, that can keep bacteria from binding to the walls of the bladder but heres the thing….. PACs aren’t present in commercial cranberry juice.
It would take an extremely large concentration of cranberry to prevent bacterial adhesion and that amount of concentration is just not found in the juices we drink. Maybe it was stronger back in our grandparents’ day, but it is definitely not strong enough today.
Then there are the cranberry capsules in the pharmacy aisle. Good news ….These do have a concentrated amount of PACs and can help prevent the risk of UTIs. According to a study published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, cranberry capsules will reduce the risk of UTIs by 50 percent in women who had a catheter in place while undergoing gynecological surgery.
UTIs account for around 8.1 million visits to health care professionals each year and are the second most common type of infection in the body and the majority of UTIs.
The infection can be caused by different types of bacteria in the urinary tract. Symptoms are a constant urge to pee, pain with urination, pelvic pain or blood in the urine. The symptoms do not usually last that long but the infection usually needs to be treated with antibiotics.
Sometimes you can confuse a UTI with an overactive bladder, so it’s best to consult your physician about any symptoms you’re having. Remember that UTIs can progress into kidney infections which are much worse.
