Cranberry is a natural antibiotic loaded with vitamin A and vitamin C. In folk medicine, cranberry fruit and tea are used to treat infections of the urinary tract, such as nephritis, pyelocystitis, and urethritis, and prevent urinary and kidney stones as well.

Cranberries can help prevent urinary infections, especially infections caused by the bacteria Escherichia coli.

Escherichia coli are common bacteria of the urinary tract that stick to the walls of the urinary system. However, consuming cranberry juice can help eliminate bacteria easily through the urine. Cranberry fights against Escherichia coli, too.
