alcohol & beer


Question by  suresh (21)

Is it true that beer will help a bladder infection?


Answer by  Dana46 (2345)

Beer acts as a diuretic, so it helps eliminate waste from the bladder and keeps liquid moving through faster, but the alcohol that causes the diuretic action also lowers your body's immune ability. Better to drink lots of acidic fruit juice such as orange or cranberry to flush the bladder.

Omg! NO! It can actually do the opposite and make the infection last longer. The best solution for it is to drink lots of water, and cranberry juice.
