... infection? What are the best things to take or drink to keep my urine acidic or alkaline? Thanks
Acidic. Drink lots and lots of cranberry juice.
She is correct, it is acidic. Try taking 1000mg Vitamin C per day. This will help acidify the urine even better than cranberry juice. Studies have shown cranberry juice is overhyped (sorry Kaismama-I am a frequent bladder infection person so I try to keep up on this-no offense intended) Most commercial cranberry juice has sugar added which negates what good cranberry does. People dont like to drink unsweetened cranberry juice, it is very bitter. Vitamin C has been shown to work well or if you are really a cranberry believer, it is better to use cranberry pills. Stay well hydrated by drinking at least 64 oz water a day. If you tend to get these frequently and you want to know more tips, I know of several (let me know if you are male or female). Send me a private message if you want them. For now, be sure that you are wiping from front to back after using the bathroom and always, always void (pee) after sexual intercourse (if you are female).
