Lactobacilli are believed to dominate the urogenital flora bacteria in a healthy woman. It is believed that restoration of the urogenital flora with lactobacilli may protect against UTIs. Cranberry aids in the prevention of UTIs by causing the urine to become acid and therefore causes the bad bacteria stick to the wall lining of the urinary tract.

Our Conclusive Review About Dr. Formulated Probiotics Urinary Tract+ 50 Billion CFU
These probiotics are unique in the way they are blended with Cranberry to achieve optimal urinary tract health. They come in easy to swallow capsules. However, Garden of Life does not offer any bulk purchasing options which makes it less affordable to take these capsules continuously and maintain optimal urinary tract health in the long term, especially considering that they are expensive relative to similar products on the market. Their money-back guarantee is also limited and does not offer sufficient time to see if the product works for you and still have time to get a refund.
