Studies have shown that cranberries can actually protect a person from developing a UTI. This is especially true for women who are prone to developing UTIs regularly. However, it is uncertain as to whether cranberry juice is helpful to those who are not prone to developing UTIs regularly.

However, cranberries are filled with antioxidants that can help improve the health of a person. In fact, some studies have shown that it is possible that some of these antioxidants can actually make it harder for bacteria to stay in the urinary tract. Instead it is not able to gain a grip on the tract and is flushed out through the urine.

Because of these studies, it is likely that adding cranberry juice to your diet can help improve your chances of staying healthy and avoiding UTIs. However, further research is necessary before it becomes apparent as to whether cranberry juice can actually cure a UTI after it is already present in the body.
