Hello. This is Jinny, the pharmacist.
Have you ever had a small amount of urine but frequent urination or an unbearable urgency? This is a representative symptom of urinary tract infection, and it is called cystitis, pyelonephritis, etc. depending on the infected area. Due to the short distance between the anus and the urethra, women are known to be more susceptible to urinary tract infections than men .
The cause of urinary tract infection is harmful bacteria, including E. coli, that exist around the digestive tract, vagina, and urethra. Harmful bacteria stick to the mucous membrane of the urinary tract, colonize, and gradually travel from the urethra to the bladder and kidneys, causing infection.
Therefore, today, I would like to introduce cranberry , a demonic fruit that can help with urinary tract infections .
