Sonora Nutrition Cranberry Concentrate is the brand I’m using, in case other patients with repetitive UTIs would like to try it. I read that there was an NIH study done on Cranberry Extract pills, and not all brands actually worked to help reduce infections. It was depended on the level of protancystic in the pill (I know I’m spelling that word wrong 🙄).
For whatever reason, they didn’t list which brands they actually tested…frustrating 😡. But some brands did work — and it looks like this one definitely is helping. Many of the reviews on Amazon were positive as well (that’s why I bought this one in the first place 🙂
When I was researching cranberry extract pills, I just figured it couldn’t hurt and I might as well try it cuz I’ve had so many bad urine results I had nothing to lose, so now I’m very *very* happy I had a normal urine sample!! I think this is the first normal urine I’ve had since I stopped taking the IV Vanco (and who wants to live on IV Vanco the rest of their life — no one!!)
