It seems as if everyone these days is trying to put the frontline attack on things we've known for years.
This time it is the cranberry. And then it is the benefit from cranberry that helps you if you get an infection in your bladder, commonly called a UTI.
If you read closely, the tell tale sign of spurious research is the fact that this report is based on the use of a product only 27% cranberry.
For the unenlightened, it is important to use a product that is organic, and 100% cranberry.
Cranberry offers some unique enzymes not found in other food. I mentioned this a few years ago in an interview I did as a guest on the Jeff Rense program.
In that discussion of easy things to do to protect your health my suggestion was to take 2 ounces daily of pure cranberry juice. With a UTI, add a cranberry capsules and drink much more water.
Another suggestion is to add 100% pure unsweetened cranberry juice to your daily fluid intake (1 oz juice to 7 oz water). The keyword is "unsweetened".
You can also make your own cranberry juice from whole cranberries. Simmer them in water until they pop, then blend the water and berries on high in your blender. Use one pound of berries to one quart of pure, filtered water.
Just remember, the use of cranberry juice for UTI has been effectively used for decades.
