In traditional North American herbalism, cranberry has been used to prevent kidney stones and “bladder gravel” as well as to remove toxins from the blood.
- Urinary Tract Infection: cranberry prevents E. coli, the most common bacterial cause of UTIs, from adhering to the cells lining the wall of the bladder. This anti-adherence action is thought to reduce the ability of the bacteria to cause a UTI. A small double-blind trial with younger women ages 18–45 years with a history of recurrent urinary tracts infections, found that daily treatment with an encapsulated cranberry concentrate (400 mg twice per day) for three months significantly reduced the recurrence of urinary tract infections compared to women taking a placebo.
- Kidney Stones: Cranberry has been shown to reduce the amount of ionised calcium in the urine by more than 50% in patients with kidney stones.
- Antioxidant:cranberries are rich in potent antioxidant compounds including anthocyanidins, quercetin, and chlorogenic acid. Cranberry has been found to be one of the richest sources of phenolic compounds demonstrating anti-proliferative effects in human cancer cells.
One to three capsules daily, or as recommended.
Up to 800mg daily over 3 months has been found to be effective in reducing the recurrence of UTIs.
