Guide to Maintaining Urinary Health in Ramadan

Guide to Maintaining Urinary Health in Ramadan

5 March, 2024

“Why does it usually happen to me during Ramadan?” one might ask, experiencing discomfort from a urinary tract infection (UTI).

One main factor contributing to the increased risk of getting a UTI is insufficient water intake, especially during fasting.

Quick Tips

Did you know that females are 30 times more likely than males to develop UTI? Almost half of the females experience at least one episode of UTI during their lifetime. UTI is a common infection involving any part of the urinary tract, namely the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra.

Why does UTI Happen?

Different types of pathogenic bacteria and certain fungi can cause UTIs—the bacteria E. coli cause more than 90% of bladder infections. Our urinary system is naturally able to keep out bacteria. However, suppose the defenses fail, and the harmful bacteria remain in the urinary system. In that case, they can grow and result in an infection in the urinary tract.

Muslims can drink or eat only before sunrise (Sahur) and after sunset (Berbuka) during Ramadan, thus reducing the frequency and amount of water intake. Drinking less water and urinating less give bacteria additional time to grow in the urinary tract instead of being flushed out.

Additionally, menopause, a weak immune system, urinary tract obstructions, and poor urinary hygiene may also further increase the risk of UTI.

How to Prevent UTI?

Herbalmeds Urocran as the Solution for UTI

Cranberry has been a popular therapy for UTIs for almost 100 years, particularly before the advent of antibiotics. The antioxidant content, especially proanthocyanidins, inhibits the adherence of bacteria to the urinary tract.

Herbalmeds Urocran contains all-natural PACRAN® cranberries that support urinary health. PACRAN® is a patented ingredient from France with 100% whole cranberry extract, made exclusively with North American Vaccinium macrocarpon cranberries. One capsule of Herbalmeds Urocran is equivalent to 25,000mg of fresh cranberry fruit. PACRAN® demonstrates long-lasting anti-adhesion activity of harmful and infectious bacteria to the inner lining of the lower urinary tract, naturally improving urinary health.

Take one capsule of Herbalmeds Urocran once daily during Sahur to ensure all-day protection of your urinary health.

Herbalmeds Urocran has been clinically proven as an herbal solution for those with UTIs, especially recurrent UTIs, and offers convenient once-a-day consumption.
