  Cran berry juice is considered good in UTI cuz it makes the urine alkaline....which is an unfavourable enviroment for the growth of bacteria.
it helps a lot alleviating infection

  yes kash this concept was considered earlier but the recent concept of using cranberry juice in UTI's is that cranberry juice contains tannins which inhibits binding of pili to the urinary tract epithelium...
