Some anecdotal...: Some have claim for years that cranberry juice could help fight a UTI due to changes in your bladder tissue that do not allow bacteria to grow as they need to. However, there is no clear scientific prove of this. Many healthy people's bodies fight the infection on its own but that is impossible to predict so in order to avoid complications antibiotics are recommended if having symptoms of UTI.
