Brief Answer:
You can take Cranberry but Mannose can lead to fluid retention

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

No problem at all. Take Cranberry. But Mannose can lead to fluid retention, so it is better to take plain cranberry juice.

It helps in E-coli infection where it dislodges the bacteria sticking to walls of bladder and flushes them out.
