Canberry juice & extract help to prevent or even eliminate urinary tract infection(UTI).Lab studies have shown that cranberry works by preventing the adherence of bacteria to the walls of the urinary tract.. Bacteria adhere to the walls of the urinary tract with specialized fibers called fimbriae.So the cranberry juice acts by reducing bacteriuria (bacteria in the urine) and pyuria (pus in the urine).Research have shown that regular intake of cranberry juice "cocktail" significantly reduced the frequency of bacteriuria and pyuria.Canberries contain hippuric acid which has antibacterial effects on body,
