Drinking cranberry juice has been a traditional method used to prevent urinary tract infections. Cranberries contain antibacterial compounds that act against the coliform bacteria that cause urinary tract infections. The primary mechanism of action may be the decrease in the adhesion of bacteria (most notably E. Coli) to urinary tract cells. However, the disadvantages to this include the ingestion of unwanted calories, artificial preservatives, colours, flavours, sodium and refined sugar.
