Bladder Infection supplements
Bladder Infection

  • There is some human evidence supporting the use of cranberry juice and cranberry supplements to prevent urinary tract infection (UTI), although most available studies are of poor quality. There are no clear dosing guidelines, but given the safety of cranberry, it may be reasonable to recommend the use of moderate amounts of cranberry juice cocktail to prevent UTI in non-chronically ill individuals. Cranberry has not been shown effective as a treatment for documented UTI. Although cranberry may be used as an adjunct therapy in some cases, given the proven efficacy of antibiotics, cranberry should not be considered a first line treatment. Cranberry has been investigated for numerous other medicinal uses, and promising areas of investigation include prevention of H . pylori infection, which causes gastrointestinal ulcers and dental plaque.
