Pure Cranberry Juice is my new best friend!

I recently was told to drink pure cranberry juice once a day by a friend because it helps with bad breath, prevent UTI's and cancer! Yay! I know this is quite tart tasting, but I believe that once a day will do me justice and it's almost like a wake up drink to replace my morning fix of coffee :D

I like to buy Ocean Spray Cranberry and Raspberry Juice. It is mixed with water and sugar though. I wish I could find a pure cranberry juice and I bet it would taste delicious. I don't drink either tea or coffee. Well done for drinking cranberry juice rather than coffee at breakfast time. I think that health benefits sound fantastic.

I got to consider adding this to my daily diet. I've been having UTI since i was in my teens, and now I'm 30, and still occassionally being diagnosed with UTI. Now, I'm concerned that my little girls will also acquire the same infection, since I had UTI on and off during pregnancy.

Yes, that is true. Various studies show that cranberry juice has some "anti-adhesive" properties against the bacteria causing urinary tract infections. These organism tend to 'stick' to the kidneys contributing to UTI. But regular drinking or making cranberry juice a part of the diet would help wash these harmful stuff.
