Cranberry Powder – Organic
Cranberry is a small, evergreen shrub grown in bogs in the cooler regaions of North America. It has a long history of use among native American Indian tribes, primarily for treating urinary conditions. A landmark study in the British Medical Journal reports that cranberry juice and cranberry powder as an effective way to treat and prevent urinary tract infections (UTIs), which can be deadly for people who have to use a catheter to pass urine. According to the American Botanical Council cranberry powder is helpful in confronting urinary tract infection, including its prevention, treatment, and decreasing the occurrence of kidney stones. People used to think that cranberry works for urinary tract infections by making the urine acidic and, therefore, unlikely to support the growth of bacteria. Some people use cranberry for type 2 diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome, scurvy, inflammation of the lining around the lung (pleurisy), and cancer.
