Antibiotic resistance is a global problem - one that can be addressed by finding alternative prevention methods for common conditions like UTIs, which are the second most common type of infection worldwide and typically treated with antibiotics.
Annually, UTIs result in seven to eight million physician and hospital visits and $6 billion in healthcare costs in adults and account for 1.8% of pediatric hospitalizations. Additionally, recurrence is high with a 25-30% rate for adults and a 12-30% rate in children.
Many women turn to cranberry juice to prevent UTIs. In this session, you will learn about the polyphenolic compounds found in cranberries responsible for promoting urinary tract and their mechanisms of action, and how those can work to reduce the burden of UTIs and the antibiotic use associated with treating recurrent UTIs, as well as clarification on misconceptions around cranberries that consumers may have  You will also learn creative ways to incorporate cranberry products to help clients, patients and consumers meet daily fruit recommendations and obtain important health benefits.
