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.

Garden of Life Dr. Formulated Probiotics Urinary Tract+ 50 Billion CFU Review – Conclusion
This product appears to be a promising supplement that can help you achieve better urinary tract health and can help you prevent UTIs from recurring. It contains a unique blend of ingredients that have been shown to contain properties that can optimize your urinary tract health and it comes in easy to take capsules. However, it appears that the formula or dosage recommendation may be flawed. Many consumers reported that they experience adverse side effects after taking this supplement. The product’s official website is limited. The manufacturer elaborates about the creator of the product but does little to explain the risks and benefits of the product itself. Everybody may react differently to this supplement and experience negative or positive effects but you may be better off purchasing a product that has been consumer reviews and a stronger manufacturer’s guarantee.
