A new study done by the Ocean Spray Cranberries Inc. has found that drinking cranberry juice can help prevent Urinary Tract Infections (UTI's) in women. Women are generally more prone to UTI's than men, because bacteria is easier to spread in their urethra. It can be painful, with symptoms like a burning feeling and pressure in their urinary tract.
The study tested how healthy women react to drinking cranberry juice daily. They tested a group of 373 women, and some drank a glass of cranberry juice everyday for 6 weeks, and others were given a placebo.
These were the main findings of the study:
- The women that drank cranberry juice experienced fewer symptoms of urinary infections- Cranberry juice generally is high in sugar, and the juice used in this experiment had reduced sugar-
If you are prone to UTI's, consider taking a cranberry daily to reduce the risk of infection. Also, taking a supplement will eliminate the carbohydrates and sugars found in juice.
