Urinary Tract Infection Symptoms and Natural Remedies: Cranberries May Prevent
Intake of Cranberry products may prevent Urinary Tract Infections or UTI, according to recent studies. Medical researchers found cranberry products seemed especially helpful for women who had trouble with UTIs.
Use of cranberry-containing products appears to be associated with prevention of urinary tract infections in some individuals, according to a study published Monday in Archives of Internal Medicine according to reports.
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are common bacterial infections and adult women are particularly susceptible. Cranberry-containing products have long been used as a “folk remedy” to prevent the condition, according to the study background.
Researchers from the National Taiwan University reviewed the available medical literature to re-evaluate cranberry-containing products for the prevention of UTI.
Urinary Tract Infection Symptoms may include, A strong persistent urge to urinate, a burning sensation when urinating
,passing frequent and small amounts of urine. Also pelvic pain in women and rectal pain in men.
For women with a history of multiple infections, in particular, the risk of UTI was reduced by 47 percent while on cranberry products as stated in FoxNews.com.
For example, in one study of Canadian women with recurrent infections, there were 19 UTIs among 100 women taking both cranberry capsules and juice over a year, compared to 16 infections in 50 women who were assigned to cranberry-free imitation juice.
