Neurogenic Bladder

Functional foods are products that are demonstrated to have health benefits and/or reduce the risk of chronic disease beyond their basic nutritional functions (Health Canada 1998). Cranberry juice, as it pertains to urinary tract infection risk, may fall under the category of a functional food. Refer to our Neurogenic Bladder module for further information on the potential impact of cranberry juice on urinary tract infection in the SCI population.
