There are many discrepancies in the published data that make comparisons difficult, including the type of cranberry product used, the amount of cranberry ingested, the type of subjects and comorbidities. The anthocyanidins and proanthocyanidins (PAC) are tannins (stable polyphenols) found only in vaccinium berries and function as a natural plant defense system against microbes (10,14). Therefore, the evidence to recommend cranberries for UTI prevention in the elderly is inconclusive. (12) used a cranberry-lingonberry (CB) juice versus Lactobacillus GG versus control (no treatment) and measured a risk reduction of 20% when the CB group was compared to the control group. Furthermore, they described a reduction in adherence activity even in strains with no expression of type 1 fimbriae or p-fimbriae, which adhere via an adhesin, suggesting that cranberry extracts affect a variety of fimbriae.

Because of the chronic nature of urinary tract infections (UTIs) and the potential for antibiotic resistance, a natural approach to prevention and treatment is desirable. McMurdo et al. Mol Nutr Food Res. J Nutr. In Brazil, the usual dose intake would cost between US $1,000 to $1,200 annually. Peak urinary anthocyanidin concentration is observed 3-6 hours after intake, and urinary excretion is nearly complete within the first 12 hours (31).

Cranberry juice, predominantly in the form of a juice cocktail drink with approximately 25% cranberry juice, has been the traditional choice of most women seeking to prevent UTIs. Despite cranberry presentation, it is generally recommended to consume cranberries just prior or two hours after meals; it is also important to drink lots of water, mainly after preparations from dehydrated juices (11).

Wing DA, Rumney PJ, Preslicka CW, Chung JH. Clinics. The six-month risk of developing a UTI while consuming cranberries was 60% greater than in women on low-dose trimethoprim; however, this result did not reach statistical significance. Lower urinary tract infections (UTIs) are very common and have been estimated to occur in at least 60% of women at some stage during their lives (1-3). Cranberries and lower urinary tract infection prevention. McGuiness et al. The active ingredients in cranberries prevent bacteria from adhering to the bladder wall.

There are other relatives of the cranberry family (European cranberry - V. oxycoccus; lingonberry - V. vitisidaea; blueberry - V. myrtillus) that share some of the cranberry's basic components, but research evidence for a role in prevention is limited (12,13). Everyone can benefit from the same prevention tips, including: 1. Lee YL, Najm WI, Owens J, Thrupp L, Baron S, Shanbrom E, et al. 2011;45(3):e17, http://dx.doi.org/10.1345/aph.1P451. Other important issues are the cost and the necessity to carry large amounts of cranberry juice that may limit acceptance in general population. Drugs. Potential mechanisms of this interaction have included the salicylate content of the juice (68) and the presence of CYP enzyme-inhibiting flavonoids. An examination of the anti-adherence activity of cranberry juice on urinary and nonurinary bacterial isolates. [ Links ], 53. In July 2020, the FDA announced that labels can say: Cranberry juice or supplements may help prevent urinary tract infections (UTIs). They concluded that there is some evidence that cranberry juice may decrease the number of symptomatic UTIs over a 12 month period, particularly, and only, for women with recurrent UTIs (53). The main protein structure related to this phenomenon is the adhesin protein, and its name is based on its shape: pili or fimbriae (2). 1995;2(1):98-102. Schmidt DR, Sobota AE. J Spinal Cord Med.

Recurrent urinary tract infections remain challenging to treat because the main treatment option is long-term antibiotic prophylaxis; however, this poses a risk for the emergence of bacterial resistance. Pili are small filaments that enable bacteria to adhere to the host tissue; these proteins can be either mannose-resistant or mannose-sensitive. [ Links ], 34. [ Links ], 16. Cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon) is a distinctive source of polyphenols as flavonoids and phenolic acids that has been described to display beneficial effects against urinary tract infections (UTIs), the second most common type of infections worldwide.

Ngo N, Brantley SJ, Carrizosa DR, Kashuba AD, Dees EC, Kroll DJ, et al. Can J Urol. Hisano M, Bruschini H and Nicodemo AC wrote the manuscript. Some authors believe that intact PACs may not be active in vivo because they are too large to be absorbed as intact molecules in the gastrointestinal tract (27,28). Cimolai N, Cimolai T. The cranberry and the urinary tract. After 12 months, 24%, 43% and 38%, of the CB, Lactobacillus GG and control groups, respectively, had experienced at least 1 UTI. 2008;68(9):1169-205, http://dx.doi.org/10.2165/00003495-200868090-00002. Inhibition of the adherence of P-fimbriated Escherichia coli to uroepithelial-cell surfaces by proanthocyanidin extracts from cranberries. Of the 188 subjects, 38.8% did not complete the study and withdrew, most because of gastrointestinal upset, including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and bad taste. (40) tested both cranberry juice and tablets versus placebo in women aged 21 to 72 years old and found that 32% of the placebo group contracted a UTI, whereas 20% of the cranberry juice group (p<0.05) and 18% of the tablets group (p<0.05) contracted UTIs. (43) compared cranberry juice versus placebo and found that there was a 4% bacteriuria and pyuria presence concurrent with UTI symptoms in the cranberry group (n = 473) versus 7% in the placebo group (n = 498) (p = not significant). Zafriri D, Ofek I, Adar R, Pocino M, Sharon N. Inhibitory activity of cranberry juice on adherence of type 1 and type P fimbriated Escherichia coli to eucaryotic cells. 1  In other words, manufactures of cranberry … After six months, the patients alternated groups for six more months. (37) demonstrated that cranberry juice could decrease E. coli adhesion up to 8 hours after consumption. Scientists used to think that cranberries protected against UTIs by making urine more acidic, which is less friendly to bacteria like Escherichia coli (E. coli) that are usually to blame. 2011. 2. It is important to consider that dried cranberry extract can be broken down by exposure to light, heat or cold. JAMA. Eur J Clin Nutr. Am J Ther. 2004;70(11):2175-7. 2012, vol. 1. McMurdo ME, Bissett LY, Price RJ, Phillips G, Crombie IK. Contemporary management of uncomplicated urinary tract infections. Without adhesion, the bacteria cannot infect the mucosal surface. Warfarin-cranberry juice interaction. There has long been an interest in the use of cranberry, usually as a juice, to prevent and treat urinary tract infections (UTI). To evaluate UTIs and lower urinary tract symptoms in male and female patients undergoing radiotherapy treatment for bladder or cervical cancer, cranberry juice was administered twice daily for six weeks in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. Nonetheless, another study described a protective effect after cranberry usage, an increase in citrate excretion and a reduction in oxalate excretion. The more virulent strains of E. coli, isolated from patients with pyelonephritis and recurrent UTIs, have other types of fimbriae, notably p-fimbriae (pyelonephritis fimbriae). Nature. UTIs are approximately 50-fold more common in adult females than males because women have shorter urethras that allow bacteria to ascend into the bladder. 2010;10:94, http://dx.doi.org/10.1186/1471-2334-10-94. (42) studied 376 hospitalized patients over 60 years old in two groups: cranberry juice versus placebo in a 24-day trial. For patients with IC, two randomized trials have been published, both in adults with spinal cord injuries. [ Links ], 40. Jepson RG, Craig JC. [ Links ], 28.
