      I take 2 "Cran-Magic" pills each day from Concepts in Confidence. Frankly, I have no idea if it really helps or actually does anything at all. However, I haven't had a UTI in over 5 years. But, I also began straight cathing myself 5 years ago instead of using the condom drainage/leg bag set up. Things are going so well with my bladder that I don't want to change anything I'm doing or taking.

        I seemed to always have UTI's and the they were getting very severe as in starting to produce blood in the urine. I would take Cipro to get rid of it of course which work's the best for me. The crannberry juice was just too much to drink and way to many carbs. I could tell it was makeing me fat. So I started takeing two to three pills daily and a glass of water with each of them. They definately help me with fighting off the bacteria that hang on the wall of the bladder. I would recommend them, I say thank goodness for natural fixes. Better then any drug. Now I haven't had a UTI in a while, "knock on wood".

          I've been taking them for about a month now, 3 to 4 times a day. I notice a definite improvement. No UTI, urine is almost always crystal clear. I'm sticking with them!
