Here are some tips that can help you keep UTI at bay:
Drink plenty of water
Women should drink plenty of water to prevent UTI. They can consume water in any form, including coconut water and soup.
A lot of women aren’t aware of the causes, symptoms and treatment of UTI. Spreading awareness is one effective way to help women know about it.
Eating foods rich in Vitamin C
Having garlic in the form of garlic tea is beneficial since it contains a compound that kills the bacteria causing UTI.
Avoid sugary foods and drinks
Sugary foods and drinks like carbonated drinks and even some kind of juices in excess quantity aren’t advisable. Moreover, even caffeine-containing drinks and foods such as coffee and tea can trigger UTI since these are responsible for stimulating the bladder which produces more urine.
Making cranberries a part of your regular diet is a great way to treat UTI since cranberries make the urine more acidic which repels bacteria. Interestingly, you can add those to a smoothie or a salad to suit your taste buds better.
