6 MUST DO’S if you have a UTI!

6 MUST DO’S if you have a UTI! | Mr Vitamins
Have you ever been told to take Cranberry if you feel like a UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) is coming on? It does help, as Cranberry extract is clinically proven to support and maintain urinary tract and bladder health, so if you suffer from UTI’s then this will be good news. Cranberry extract helps support your bladder to prevent a UTI, cystitis and recurrence of cystitis. It helps to reduce the adherence of harmful bacteria to the walls of the urinary tract (bladder and urethra).

UTI's are very common amongst women

A lot of women suffer from this infection regularly, however, a daily dose will help reduce the incidence of urinary tract infections and will also provide a therapeutic action for effective relief. One in two women are likely to experience a UTI in their lifetime. Normally when you do have a UTI it isn’t pleasant; a horrible burning sensation when you urinate, lower back pain, a urge to urinate all the time and also fever and chills. When it isn’t treated the infection moves from the bladder to the kidneys which is more serious and leaves blood in your urine….sounds horrible doesn't it? Cranberry extract will help fight any UTI due to its active ingredient proanthocyanidns which is found only in Cranberry extract capsules and not in the juice *

6 MUST DO’S if you have a UTI!

  • Stay hydrated to flush out your urinary system
  • Practice good hygiene routine
  • Go to the toilet when you feel the urge to urinate
  • Consume a daily dose of Cranberry  extract
  • Stay away from feminine hygiene sprays or any bath scented products (this will irritate the area)
  • Keep your genital area DRY! Say hello to cotton material panties and goodbye to lacy french underwear (especially in the summer months ahead, make sure your swimwear is dry and not wet as this is a breeding ground for bacteria - that could most likely lead to a UTI).

The difference between Interstitial Cystitis and UTI’s!

To be honest there isn’t a lot of difference between the two because the symptoms are very similar but if you are indeed misdiagnosed this could be an infection mistreated. Interstitial Cystitis is a chronic pain and can be known as Painful Bladder Syndrome. Some of the symptoms of Interstitial Cystitis are pain in you pelvic area, urge to urinate (more so at night time) and discomfort during intercourse. If you in fact have been treated for a UTI by your GP and it is still reoccurring, I suggest you see an urologist who will help with changes such as lifestyle, medication and physical therapy.

How does Cranberry extract help with UTI’s & Interstitial Cystitis?

Cranberry extract is clinically researched to help soothe and support the urinary tract and also support healthy bladder function.  Cranberry extract contains proanthocyanidins (naturally occurring polyphenols found in plants) that has an anti-clinging property; this helps to fight off any bacteria that cling onto the walls of your bladder. It reduces the risk of UTI’s and Interstitial Cystitis. That said it’s a preventative, so if you already have a serious infection don’t hesitate to see your healthcare professional to ensure you receive the correct diagnosis and treatment.
