Cranberry juice is high in Vitamin C and a "large polymeric compound of unknown structure" that is also found in the blueberry. Studies of cranberry juice show that drinking 300 ml a day helps to remove certain bacteria from the bladder wall of older women. Cranberry juice forms a part of a good regimen of prevention.

Most of the cranberry juice that we are familiar with might more aptly be described as "cranberry pop" because if it is the popular commercial brand, you can bet that it is only about 30% actual cranberry juice, and about 70% water and refined sweeteners. This cranberry juice is probably no more effective than any other sweet juice... in fact, the sugar probably feeds into any overgrowth of candida and the old UTI cycle.Get More Info on UTI-Clear for UTI, Bladder Infections and Cystitis

If you want to use cranberry juice as a part of your health maintenance plan (it is also good in preventing kidney stones), then you would be better off buying a bag of frozen cranberries and juicing them with sweet apples, then adding a non-harmful sweetener, such as Stevia.
