It has been known for many years that cranberries are useful for bladder and kidney infections. A recent study noted the proanthocyanidins in cranberries decrease the ability of E. coli to adhere to the cells lining the bladder. Cranberries are also rich in other phytochemicals including anthocyanin and flavonols. This recent study also shows that other microorganisms including H. pylori also respond to cranberries. Since cranberries prevent the adhesion of these bacteria it may prevent colonization and infection. Adding cranberry to your diet may help prevent UTI’s and ulcers associated with E. coli and H. pylori as well as offering other benefits that require more research. Since eating cranberries daily is often difficult and cranberry juices tend to be sugar-loaded, adding a cranberry supplement can help meet your health goals. When buying a cranberry supplement, be aware of the efficacy of some products especially encapsulated powders, can be affected by high temperatures during the extraction process. Therefore, you want powders derived from whole cranberries that have been clinically tested and carry the USP or GMP designation. UT Defense from Ortho Molecular contains a cranberry extract which boosts antioxidant activity three times higher than cranberry juice. A unique protective delivery system ensures compounds from cranberry are not destroyed by gastric acid. This product also contains Rose extract, also shown to support urinary tract health by promoting microflora balance and Dandelion leaf to support natural urinary flow.
