Wives Tales that are the Real Deal: Berries and Bladder Infections

I may not have a uterus to be infected, but I remember hearing this wives' tale a lot: Cranberry juice is a good treatment for bladder and urinary tract infections. When it comes to urinary tract infections, cranberries can help in a number of ways. First of all, they make your urine more acidic, which helps to kill off the bacteria. It needs an alkaline pH in order to thrive. Cranberries also contain nutrients that stop the bacteria from clinging to the walls of your urinary tracts, thereby eliminating the risk of infections in the first place. The antioxidants in the berries work wonders for your urinary tract health. Cranberry juice may not be the most EFFECTIVE treatment for bladder infections, but drinking a lot of cranberry juice can give your body a lot of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is needed by your immune system, and a strong immune system is better able to fight off the bacteria that are causing the infection.
