Could Cranberry Juice Cut UTI Antibiotic Use?

Drinking cranberry juice could help lessen the number of women needing antibiotics or urinary tract infections, a new study says.

Women with a recent history of UTIs who drank an 8-ounce glass of the juice each day were less likely to have their symptoms return than those who didn't drink it, the researchers found.13260092_1091556014244557_2231985186068821400_n

UTIs are among the most common bacterial infections in women worldwide, and they may affect up to 60% of ladies at some time in their lives. The condition happens when bacteria infect the urinary tract. The most common symptoms are pain or a burning feeling when you pee, and an urgent need to pee in often-small amounts.

The standard treatment is a course of antibiotics, but overuse of antibiotics means UTIs are becoming more and more resistant to the drugs that treat them.

The researchers behind the new study suggest that cranberries could be a nutritional approach to reducing UTIs and could, as a result, be a way to help lessen worldwide use of antibiotics..


The Cystitis and Overactive Bladder Foundation recommends cranberry juice as a possible way to prevent the infections. It also suggests a number of other things you can do:

1. Drink more water.
2. Avoid alcohol, pure fruit juices, tea or coffee, since they can irritate the bladder.
3. Wear clothes made of natural materials such as cotton or linen -- and don't wear thongs.
4. Always wipe from front to back after using the toilet.
5. Wash the anal area after you pop.
6. Empty your bladder as soon as you feel the need.
7. Eat more vegetables and less junk food.
8. For postmenopausal women, estrogen replacement treatment may be useful.
9. Wash the genital area before sex, and pee within 15 minutes afterward to help flush away any bacteria.
