Global experts at the International Conference on Polyphenols and Health presented new evidence, showing how cranberries are poised to be a compelling tool to help reduce antibiotic resistance and oxidative stress.

Reporting at the International Conference on Polyphenols and Health (ICPH), the scientists revealed the growing evidence on how cranberries can help curb recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs), the second most common type of infection in the body.

A lower number of infections would mean less use of antibiotics and less risk of developing antibiotic resistance.

In addition, they touched on how the unique blend of polyphenol antioxidants - provided by cranberries - may assist in preserving heart and cognitive health, and protect against oxidative stress to help promote overall well-being.

Boston University's Kalpana Gupta said they have long believed in the urinary tract health benefits that cranberries provide, but this new research reveals just how wide-ranging those benefits can be.

This new research also builds on other recent findings that revealed drinking cranberry juice cocktail may help manage risks associated with heart disease, diabetes and stroke. The future is fruitful for cranberry and, more importantly, for those who can benefit from its nutritional elements.
