A urinary tract infection is an infection that begins in the urinary system. The urinary system includes that bladder, kidneys, ureters (the tube that carries urine from the kidney to the bladder) and the urethra (the tube that carries urine out of the body). Urinary tract infection is the second most common infection after respiratory infection.
Modern research has suggested that cranberry may prevent urinary tract infections. Cranberry juice (Vaccinium macrocarpon or Vacinnium oxycoccus) has been used for more than a century as a home remedy to prevent and treat urinary tract infection. Cranberry was introduced to European settlers by Native Americans who traditionally used these berries to promote normal urinary tract health. Recent evidence suggests that constituents in cranberry called proanthocyanins prevent bacteria from adhering to the walls of the urinary tract. This is thought to allow urine to wash away the bacteria.
The urinary tract cleansers with cranberry are more effective than cranberry juice along. Urinary tract cleansers help to prevent infection, get rid of small urinary tract inflammations, and clear out unwanted bacteria, viruses, and fungi. It is good to drink fluids including unsweetened cranberry juice. Consuming plenty of fluids cleanses body by diluting and flushing out the unwanted substance.
