Cranberry benefits

Medicinal Properties:

Cranberry is top-notch "food farmacy"; all you need to do is drink the fruit juice. It is a great antiseptic that prevents bacteria, including E. coli, from clinging to the interior of the bladder. No clinging means no infection. The arbutin in cranberry not only fights infections but also encourages urinary excretion to ease water retention and tissue swelling.

Prescription Counterparts:

Conventional doctors prescribe synthetic bactericides or other antibiotics for urinary infections. Don't rule out pharmaceutical intervention for a urinary tract infection, but you might want to drink a few glasses of 100 percent cranberry juice (see "Side effects") before you go to the doctor and ask for a drug.
