In this review we assess the effectiveness of cranberry and blueberry products in preventing symptomatic urinary tract infections (UTIs).
…No relevant trials of blueberry products were identified.
…There is some evidence from four good quality RCTs that cranberry juice may decrease the number of symptomatic UTIs over a 12-month period, particularly in women with recurrent UTIs.
