The AIM Commitment to High-Quality Ingredients

Cranberry juice’s urinary-tract-scrubbing power also has a strong word-of-mouth campaign going for it, too.  For a long time, researchers thought that that cranberries were so acidic that they killed the infection through dissolution, but this is no longer thought toContinue reading “Cranberry Extract May Reduce Risk of UTIs After Surgery”
