For urinary tract infection
The proanthocyanidins (PACs) present in cranberries have an uncommon A-type intermolecular double linkage that have strong bacterial anti-adhesion properties. E.coli bacteria cause 80-90% of urinary tract infections (UTIs), the most common infection among women and have a high reoccurence rate. PACs from cranberries affect E.coli cells in three ways:
(1) change the shape of the E.coli from rods to spheres
(2) alter the cell membranes and
(3) compress tendrils on the outside of the cells, which affects E.coli‘s ability to attach to cells lining of the bladder wall.
All of these effects inhibit the bacteria’s attachment to cells lining of the bladder wall. The other mechanism by which a change in the pH of urine is by converting of benzoic acid in the fruit to hippuric acid, results in the production of sufficient hippuric acid to be effective as a urinary bacteriostatic agent. It helps to reduce urinary odor making it useful for who are incontinent.
