Will cranberry juice clean your system? If you are asking this question then you have either heard that THC (the active ingredient in cannabis) can be cleaned out of your system and can help you pass a drug test, or you have heard that cranberry juice clears up UTI (urinary tract infections), or maybe you are talking about the general detoxification abilities of cranberry juice. If that’s the case then the answer to each of these questions are dealt with below.
Will cranberry juice clean your system of THC?
The short answer is NO. There is no evidence for this, and if you check this out online a little more you will see cases where people tried to pass their urine drug test by drinking lots of cranberry juice for a few days before the test, only to see that it didn’t work. Others claim it worked wonders for them, but I am not convinced, so it’s your call! I would think that the only thing that could clear THC out of your system is a period of abstinence, exercise to sweat some out and drink lots of water and juices. In a couple of weeks you will probably be good.
Does cranberry juice clean your system of a UTI?
Yes! Cranberry juice is proven to be an effective natural treatment for a UTI. The antioxidants in cranberries called tannins help by blocking the ability of the bacteria E.coli from attaching to the urinary tract wall. Check out these two short videos that explain the benefits of cranberry juice for a UTI.
Does cranberry juice detox the body?
Absolutely! Just like all fruits juices that are high in antioxidants, cranberry juice definitely helps to clear toxins out of our cells. Detoxification is one of the key benefits of consuming lots of antioxidants and cranberry juice is loaded with them. For the very best detoxification benefits try and juice your own cranberries at home. Fresh cranberry juice contains more antioxidants than the cranberry juice found in the store. If you do go for store-bought juice, find one that has no added sugar, since refined sugar is nor so great for the urinary tract or the digestive system.
