About Cranberry Supplement

It seems that over the years, cranberries have been stereotyped for two uses—alcohol-free drinks and urinary tract infections. Yet the humble cranberry can do so much more. There are a broad range of health benefits associated with these miraculous berries. They have been written about in depth since 1550 by James White Norwood, who stated that Native Americans were using them at the time. 


How Cranberry Helps UTI?

Scientists have been scrambling to fully understand the natural chemicals contained within the cranberry, and understand their biological effects for use in health and disease. So far, it is known that cranberries are rich in A-type proanthocyanidins, which may be one of the reasons why cranberries have demonstrated an ability to protect the cardiovascular system and urinary tract. This was reported in Advances in Nutrition in 2013. It is believed that natural compounds in cranberry prevent adhesion of bacteria to the bladder wall, this reducing the rate of infection. 


In 2008 The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews published a paper highlighting the effectiveness of these berries for the treatment of recurrent urinary tract infections. However, they expressed concern over participant compliance to the treatment. So capsules or tablets—as opposed to liquids—may be the easiest way to consume this berry.

Research published by the Journal of Nutrition in January 2007 indicated that cranberry prevented the growth of a range of tumours. The authors also concluded that cranberries had an anti-inflammatory effect via inhibition of the cyclooxygenase enzyme. As previously stated, cranberries have a cardioprotective effect, perhaps via their antioxidant strength and ability to modulate lipoproteins in the human body. The polyphenols found in this berry have demonstrated a number of effects in the human body, such as antiviral, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory.


Are Cranberry Supplements Safe?

Cranberries are considered to have a strong efficacy-to-safety ratio for the management of urinary tract infections, as reported in Advances in Nutrition in 2016. This means that they are both safe and effective, and may even help to reduce dependence on antibiotics for the treatment of these types of infections.
