The Goodness of Mixed Berry Juice

So, it is summer, and I have suffered bladder infection. Not good.

I read somewhere before that berry juice can help prevent and cure bladder infections. Tammy Elizabeth Southin says:

According to research conducted at Rutgers University in New Jersey, blueberries can help you fight bladder infections (cystitis).

This type of infection can wreak havoc with your urination, by causing bladder pain, blood in your urine (in cases of severe infection), and giving you tremendous urges to urinate, only to find a tiny amount of urine comes out.

The researchers found that blueberries can effectively prevent urinary tract infections (UTIs) such as bladder and kidney infections.

This berry, like the cranberry, contains compounds called proanthocyanidins that keep E. coli (the bacteria responsible for most UTIs) from attaching to the cells in the walls of the urinary tract.

So, I bought some fresh mixed berry juice. After a day of drinking one cup, the inflammation began to lessen. Now, I am drinking another cup, just in case.

Thank you, berries.
