Washington: Use of cranberry-containing products appears to be associated with prevention of urinary tract infections in some individuals, a new study has revealed.Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are common bacterial infections and adult women are particularly at risk.According to the study background, cranberry-containing products have long been used as a “folk remedy” to prevent the condition.Chih-Hung Wang, M.D., of National Taiwan University Hospital and National Taiwan University College of Medicine, and colleagues reviewed the available medical literature to revaluate cranberry-containing products for the prevention of UTI.“Cranberry-containing products tend to be more effective in women with recurrent UTIs, female populations, children, cranberry juice drinkers, and people using cranberry-containing products more than twice daily,” the authors note.
