A naturopath at the pharmacy recommended this to me. I was very sceptical, having recurring UTIs and multiple kidney infections in the past. I have also had surgery on my kidney tube and therefore don't trust many products to remove the infection fast enough before it travels to my kidney. I am so glad I tried this because it works exactly like antibiotics, maybe even better, and it also relieves the symptoms of the infection, including burning, frequency, stinging or sore stomach. It works within a couple hours and it really helps to flush out the urinary tract. I use it in varying doses. The first time I had already had a UTI for three days and plenty of water and another supplement were not working. I could feel my kidney starting to hurt, but within an hour of taking this I was already feeling much better. Will continue to carry it everywhere with me. Most effective product for this that I have found. No need for anything else in conjunction with it.
