While we’ve been discussing apples all month, it’s not the only fruit that can help your health. Turns out berries, grapes, and other foods can help keep your body comfortable and thriving.
Many of us struggle with infections or issues with our urinary tract. Whether it’s from aging, childbirth, or you’re just prone to problems, it’s no fun.
Foods to help
- Berries can be helpful to protect against infection – by up to 34 percent if you drink a glass of berry juice every day.
- Having a cup of yogurt or other fermented dairy can decrease your risk of urinary tract infection by up to 80 percent. Studies also show it can help prevent bladder cancer.
- Garlic can protect your bladder from growing and spreading cancer, and be helpful for your kidneys, according to various studies.
- Antioxidants can help maintain the health of your entire urinary tract, and foods containing them include cocoa, apples, grapes, peanuts, and cinnamon.
