Cranberry Twice a Day Keeps the “Bugs” Away!
A wealth of scientific evidence shows that cranberry juice can help maintain a healthy urinary tract, but it is only recently that researchers have begun to understand it should be consumed twice a day in order to achieve optimum results.
“Research shows that cranberry juice prevents bacteria from sticking to the urinary tract wall – so basically when the bugs don’t stick, urinary tract infections can’t occur” said Amy B. Howell, Ph.D., research scientist at Rutgers University, New Jersey.
“This effect works best when a certain level of cranberry is maintained in the system, so enjoying a serving of juice for breakfast in the morning and one in the evening results in the best possible health benefits.”
