Cranberry Prebiotic Product May Help Ease Urinary Tract Infections

Disrupting the ability of microorganisms to adhere to the linings of the urinary tract is believed to be a key mechanism for the prevention of urinary tract infections. A recent study suggests that a combination of cranberry and prebiotics may help decrease bacterial adhesion in the urinary tract.


Participants in the study included 20 people who were given a single 975 mg dose of a cranberry prebiotic product. The researchers collected their urine immediately after supplementation and measured bacterial adhesion.


The researchers found that 85% of the participants had a moderate positive anti-adhesion response to the cranberry prebiotic product. They also noted a slow increase in urinary activity, which reached its peak at six hours after supplementation. At that point, there was a 37.5% treatment response. There were no notable differences between genders.


Researchers from Rutgers University conducted the study.
