Understanding the Benefits
Purpose: Cranberries have been used for centuries by indigenous North Americans to treat urinary, kidney, and bladder issues. Cranberry juice contains a mix of bioactive compounds, including flavonols, triterpenoids, anthocyanins, and proanthocyanidins.
What makes cranberries unique is their ability to effectively bind to bacteria, preventing them from attaching to the bladder walls. This helps flush out bacteria during urination, reducing the risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs).
There are 400+ papers looking in to how cranberry works in the bladder to help with protect the urinary tract from bacteria that could cause UTIs. Take a dive into the research to see what the science says. Below are three papers to get you started.
