Get Relief from Bladder Infections with These 5 Fresh Juices

· September 29, 2017
Besides increasing urine production, these juices will also strengthen your immune system, helping it fight the symptoms of bladder infections and speeding up recovery.

Bladder infections are very common in women. They’re produced by inflammation in the bladder due to bacteria growth.

They can also affect men, although there are not as many cases because men are not exposed to as many risk factors.

The main symptom is an uncomfortable burning sensation during urination, but can also be accompanied by fever, bleeding, and abdominal pain.

While it is not a serious condition and heals quickly, it is almost always necessary to take antibiotics to keep it under control and prevent complications.

In this article, we’d like to share 5 delicious juices to try whenever this problem comes up.

1. Orange kiwi juice

Orange kiwi juice is high in vitamin C and natural fiber, which get assimilated by your body and strengthens your immune system to thus increase its response to the bacteria that is causing infection.

The antioxidants in it and its anti-inflammatory qualities help cleanse your urinary tract, helping your kidneys and bladder to fight infection.

Ingredients

  • The juice of 5 oranges
  • 2 kiwis

Instructions

  • Squeeze the oranges and mix the juice in a blender with the two peeled kiwis.
