Diet Help for Urinary Tract Infections

Diet may play a role in the risk of contracting a urinary tract infection (UTI), an illness that will affect more than half of women at some point during their lives.

UTIs are caused by bacteria in the stool, and dietary changes can affect the bacterial flora involved, which is why researchers suggest that diet may affect risk.

Cranberry and cranberry-lingonberry juices have been found to be particularly effective in preventing UTI recurrence, as women who consumed fresh juices, especially from berries, were less likely to have experienced a UTI recently.

Most berries are rich in flavonols, such as epicatechin. Plants produce flavonols in response to microbial infection, which suggests that these substances may play a role in antimicrobial defense.
