HEALTH EFFECTS: That
cranberries can promote health of the urinary tract and ward off infection
is no longer in doubt. In 1998, scientists at Rutgers University
first published work showing that it was substances called
proanthocyanidins, or PACs - found in the juice of cranberries - that zap
the E. coli bacteria responsible for urinary tract
infections. Other scientists expanded their study to stomach ulcers
caused by H. pylori bacteria latching on to the stomach wall.
Early studies by researchers at Tel Aviv University in Israel have found
that certain cranberry concentrates can stop adhesion of H. pylori to
stomach cells - at least in test tubes.
