Arrow Why cranberry juice fights urinary infections

Researchers have found that the hair like fimbriae, which E. coli uses to attach itself to uroepithelial cells, lost their ability to remain in place causing urinary infection, and were consequently stripped away by the force of urine flow.

My sister, who is among other things a self-taught sort of naturopathic practitioner, always recommends cranberry extract supplements for urinary issues. It has been quite effective for her clients.

Cranberry has always been the folk remedy for urinary infections. It works.

Now we know why.

Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today. If you do it today and like it you can do it again tomorrow.
