New study reveals: When it comes to preventing urinary tract infections, cranberries are ineffective!
If you've ever had a urinary tract infection (or UTI), you know that calling it an uncomfortable nuisance is a major understatement…

And if you're someone who suffers from frequent UTIs, you probably think that one of the best ways to prevent them is by taking cranberry pills or drinking cranberry juice.

After all, cranberry supplements and juice have long been promoted as a way to treat and heal UTIs. But it turns out that this isn't necessarily true…

New study finds that taking cranberry pills doesn’t have any effect on the presence of UTI-causing bacteria

While a few studies have found that taking cranberry capsules or drinking cranberry juice can prevent UTIs, a study published in the journal JAMA last month showed that taking two cranberry capsules a day – of which each dose contained 72mg of proanthocyanidin – for a year had no effect whatsoever on the presence of UTI-causing bacteria or number of UTIs experienced by participants.
 
What’s more, researchers behind the study also found that 29% of women who took a cranberry supplement had positive tests for UTI-causing bacteria compared to 29.1% among women who didn’t supplement.
 
The bottom line? This study suggests that cranberry supplements and juice aren’t really helpful when it comes to preventing recurrence of UTIs. Study researchers looked at almost 200 women in this double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled study and all results were statistically significant.
 
Now that you know that cranberry isn’t necessarily a solution for treating and preventing UTIs, where do you turn to? Meet D-Mannose, your new UTI remedy!

D-Mannose is a lesser-known but surprisingly more effective alternative way to treat and prevent UTIs

If you suffer from frequent UTIs, here’s some good news – new research has uncovered a promising new natural remedy for preventing and treating this type of infection! D-Mannose is basically a sugar that can help reduce your risk of future UTIs. The funny thing is this remedy actually isn’t that sweet – it looks like a fluffy protein powder.
 
New studies have found that supplementing with D-Mannose can significantly improve UTI symptoms like a burning feeling when you urinate, cloudy, dark, bloody, or strange-smelling urine, and feeling tired or shaky, plus help resolve infections.
 
While the jury is still out on D-Mannose, you should definitely keep your eye on it!
