Azo-Cranberry is made from the berry fruit of an evergreen plant native to North America. Because azo-cranberry is acidic, it can interfere with undesirable germs in the urinary tract. Azo-Cranberry is also thought to have diuretic properties (“water pill”).
Azo-Cranberry (as juice or capsules) has been used in alternative medicine as a potentially helpful assistance in preventing symptoms such as discomfort or burning when urinating. The bacteria that causes a bladder infection will not be treated by Azo-Cranberry.
The FDA has not examined the safety or efficacy of this product. For more information, speak with your doctor or pharmacist.
