Cranberry for Overactive Bladder


Overactive bladder is not a disease, but a non-infectious condition manifesting as the urge to urinate frequently day and night. In this study, 60 women with overactive bladder, at least age 18, took a placebo or 500 mg of dried cranberry powder per day. After 24 weeks, compared to placebo, the cranberry group had reduced daily urinary episodes by 16.4 percent, urgent episodes by 57.3 percent, and the subjective perception of the condition by 39.7 percent. The average urinary volume per episode did not differ from the placebo group.

The results for cranberry compared favorably with prescription drug treatments for overactive bladder.
