Cranberry Juice Beats Extract for Fighting Infection
by Christine Lepisto, Berlin on 10.30.11

<snip>

Researchers at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute have furthered the body of research that proves cranberries are effective at preventing and treating urinary tract infections. What they found echoes a common scientific motif: when we attempt to isolate the "healthy" molecule, we get less than expected. The cranberry juice in its entirety is more effective than the proanthocyanidins (PACs) extracted from cranberries.

2. This might be TMI
but I OD'd on cranberry pills trying to cure a UTI last week.

Wreaked my stomach for days in a very unladylike way. Spent a great deal of time in the potty and ran out of toiletpaper if you get my drift. A week of antibiotics was required anyway.

Stick with the juice ladies.

Oh and they don't call it honeymoon cystitus for nothing. Yay! :P

Bananas posting about cranberries, isn't the intertubes wonderful?
