Cranberries are those ruby red small fruits adorning delightful puddings and providing a sweet sauce to accompany our favourite roast turkey. The plant however is Native American and has been used in traditional healing for centuries as poultices for wounds and a remedy for scurvy. Today the intake of Cranberries in a variety of forms from juice, tea and capsules is valued for its role in preventing and alleviating urinary tract infections (UTIs) caused by bacteria.
In the 1920's it was discovered that those who consumed a large amount of cranberries produced more acidic urine. It was also understood that cranberries stimulated the production of Hipppuric Acid which has an antibiotic effect on the urinary tract and may prevent certain bacteria from growing. Cranberries may even help to stop harmful microorganisms adhering to the lining of the urinary tract and in doing so help to prevent further attacks of infection.
