Medonin Research:

 

Cranberry- Regular use of cranberry juice significantly reduces bacterial growth in the urinary tract, and improves the body's response to infection in the form of white blood cells. One double-blind, placebo controlled study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, found that supplementation with cranberry juice significantly reduced the frequency of bacteria and pus in the urine of older women with recurrent urinary tract infections (1-7).

Blueberry (Vaccinium angustifolium) – Blueberry contains similar components as cranberry. Like cranberry, blueberry appears to prevent bacterial adhesion to the lining of the urinary bladder and bacterial colonization. (7)
**blueberry is often confused with bilberry. Blueberry in the US refers to the species of Vaccinium listed here. However, elsewhere in the world, blueberry may refer to the European plant, Vaccinium myrtillus, which is called bilberry in the US.

D-Mannose - Mannose is a natural occurring simple sugar that is helpful in treating urinary tract infections. Research suggests that d-mannose binds to bacteria that cause urinary tract infections (UTIs) and may therefore help prevent UTIs. (8-9)

Uva-Ursi leaf (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi) – The herb urva-ursi has urinary antiseptic and astringent effects. Urva-ursi leaf extract is approved in Germany for treatment of bladder infections. Urva-ursi’s active constituent, arbutin, is converted to hydroquinone in the urine, which kills bacteria. (10-12)

Probiotics (acidophilus) – Probiotic beneficial bacteria may involve anti-adhesion factors and create by-products that kill bacterial pathogens, possibly modulating immune signaling effects. In mouse model studies of UTIs, researchers introduced specific strains of Lactobacillus intraurethrally and found that Lactobacillus worked as an effective treatment and preventive of UTIs. (13)
