Unsweetened Cranberry Juice Still Is a Recommended Therapy To Help Women Avoid Bladder Infections.

Apparently that cranberry juice can prevent the adherence of bacteria to the lining cells of the bladder,and thus prevent Urinary Tract Infections (UTI).  This and Vitamin C have both been studied in pregnancy and they are both safe to use. For Vitamin C it's as little as a 100 mg daily dosage. But a glass a day is sufficient as you don't want to have too much as their is such a thing as Cranberry Juice Withdrawal?  Cranberry juice will work to hold off or even cure bladder infections but you may not be able to stop! Cranberries contain flavonoids. For years gynos debated as to what about the cranberry juice helped to prevent infections, it was thought that urine became more acidic, but apparently it just causes a slippery wall to the bladder. The E.coli bacteria, which cause most infections, then cannot stick to these slippery walls. This is a great technique for preventing infection, as there is no resistance that develops unlike the resistance we can develop from antibiotic treatments. Taking the cranberry pills, rather than just drinking juice, is better for us, as sometimes the extra fluid can make the symptoms of going more frequently much worse. But then there are relapses, and more chronic infections after chronic cranberry users stop.
