Recurrent Urinary Inflammation
The Indians called it Imbi or Atoka was used for various purposes : because they add flavor and vitamins in meat as a poultice for the treatment of wounds and as a dye for their clothes . The first settlers and sailors used it as a preventive treatment against scurvy for about two centuries .
Since 1923 already , long before the discovery of antibiotics , American physicians you prescribe the Cranberry for prevention and reduction of recurrent urinary tract infections . Then , it was believed that the action was due to acidification of the urine that was caused by the very low pH of the juice of the plant .In 1984 he was given the scientific explanation for the action of the plant. In fact, taking Cranberry alter the chemical composition of the urine thus preventing the adhesion of bacteria, in particular Escherichia coli (E. Coli), the walls of the urinary tract. This action seems to be due to the presence of various substances eg of hippuric acid and proanthocyanidins (condensed tannins) with high molecular weight.The Cranberry is therefore a new alternative approach to the prevention of urinary tract infections by reducing the antibiotics and side effects that accompany them. Recent clinical studies show that the use of Cranberry has the effect of reducing the number of infections.
