Re: UTI's?

I had a girl that had recurring UTIs for 2 years. I put her on cranberry capsule 3x/day for about 6 months, then dropped it to 2/day for the rest of her life. Never saw a UTI again.

Cranberry provides hippuric acid that acidifies the urine, which helps kill the bacteria AND it actually keeps the bacteria from sticking to the walls of the bladder. This acid works a bit differently than vitamin C and ACV. I use both Cranberry and Vitamin C, but my main weapon is the cranberry.

Cranberry is one of those funny things that quality really varies depending on the supplement manufacturer; I think even more so with this supplement than some of the others.
