Cranberries – better than antibiotics?

Women in particular are repeatedly affected by bladder infections, and anyone who has suffered from the problem knows how annoying it can be. But now, there seems to be a herbal remedy that can help effectively. A new review by the German Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care (IQWiG) reveals that recurrent cystitis can be prevented or at least delayed by the preventive intake of cranberry preparations. 

In comparison with placebo preparations, there is evidence based on several randomized controlled trials that the infection only recurs later or not at all. The evaluated studies show that phytotherapeutics that include cranberry are a good alternative to treatment with antibiotics due to their anti-inflammatory effect that wards off the painful inflammation of the urinary tract.
