Vitamin C and Urinary Tract Infections

My dear friend’s child was treated for recurring urinary tract infections (UTI) for years with antibiotics. She searched and tried every alternative she could think of including cranberries and cranberry juice, lots of liquids, all to no avail. She did not think it was healthy, especially for a young child, to be on antibiotics 3-4 times per year. Finally, I suggested that she give her child 1,000 mgs of Vitamin C in the morning and another 1,000 mgs at night until the UTI went away. This would create an acidic environment in which the bacteria causing the UTI cannot live. It worked. Then I suggested she try giving her child 1,000 mg of vitamin C per day so that the UTI would not return. This has worked as well and it has worked for countless others.

What I am writing here is based on observation of results in people I know. More research needs to be done to really prove it. But if I were having recurring UTIs and Vitamin C could put a stop to it, I would do it. Here is an article written by a physician who agrees that Vitamin C is a useful tool for combating UTIs or bladder infections. I agree with him that the dose does not have to be as high as 6,000 mgs.

Vitamin C, which is ascorbic acid, creates an acidic environment in which the bacteria causing urinary tract infections cannot live. Some studies have been done on this, although not enough vitamin C was used in some of them.

A word of caution; there are a number of causes for a UTI or bladder infection so always consult with your doctor.
