UTIs account for over 6 million patient visits to physicians per year in the United States. In fact, it is the second most common type of infection in the body. It’s estimated that around 50-60% of women will develop UTIs in their lifetimes.
Statistics show that women are disproportionately affected by this nuisance. Women between the ages of 16 and 35 are about 35 times more likely to be affected by UTI than men. This is because women have shorter urethras than men, making it easier for bacteria to reach the bladder. Frequent sexual intercouse and existing health conditions can increase the risk even further.
The most common treatment for UTIs is a course of antibiotics. But this tends to require a doctor visit, a prescription and a trip to the pharmacy, which is far from convenient, not to mention potentially costly.
Consequently, maintaining urinary tract health through supplementation is important, particularly if UTIs tend to be chronic (two or more infections in 6-months or three or more in 12-months).
