Are cranberry tablets effective?


Answer by  cresandsuzanne (115)

Cranberry extract is considered to be one of, if not, the, most effective treatment for urinary tract infections. When cranberries break down in a bladder, it releases a chemical called hippuric acid that will fight bacteria. Taken on a daily basis, one tablet a day will prevent urinary tract infections and maintain bladder health/function.

Cranberry is known as preventive treatment for Urinary Tract Infections as it prevents bacteria from attaching to the walls of the urinary tract. They are not effective once the bacteria attach to the cells in the urinary tract. Similarly it can prevent Ulcer, heart disease though more research is needed. It can promote oral hygiene by preventing cavities.

Cranberry tablets or juice may provide temporary relief for a urinary tract infection. If the condition continues for more than a few days or worsens, however, seek medical attention promptly.

Yes, they are effective for urinary tract issues. They don't work as quickly as drinking cranberry juice, however. If you take them regularly, they will work better.

Cranberry is a natural reliever for urinary tract infections, like in the kidneys, bladder, or urethra. Cranberry tablets are basically large amounts of the natural antibiotics found in the berry. Drinking cranberry juices or cran-someotherfruit juices is just as effective infection, and although cheaper, you would have to drink larger amounts.
