Cranberry Juice


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Cranberry juice is a good alternative to soft drinks and it can be good for you.
Research has shown that cranberry juice can lower the risk of urinary tract infections and can shorten the length of an established infection.
It does this by increasing the acidic level in your kidneys.
It also makes the lining of your bladder slippery, which also lowers the risk of URI's.
If you are prone to kidney stones (the calcium oxalate stones), some studies have shown that cranberry juice can increase the

incidence of stones by about 1%. Always check with Your health-care provider to insure it is OK for you to consume large quantities of any substance.

    Go for the unsweetened - not from concentrate variety. Find @ Trader Joe's and other offbeat stores.
