AZO Urinary Tract Defense

Author: Healthnuttxo

Urinary Tract Infections (UTI’s) are well… a pain. While they happen most commonly in women, it is totally possible for a man to have a UTI as well.

AZO has come out with a product to “control the infection” as well as provide some pain relief for when a UTI hits and you have to wait to see the doctor. NOTE: This product is NOT a replacement for going to the doctor! A UTI is an infection, and often requires medication from a doctor or physician assistant, so PLEASE if you think you have a UTI, seek medical attention!

AZO’s Urinary Tract Defense contains Methenamine, which is antibacterial, (thus preventing the “spread of the infection”), as well as Sodium Salicylate, which is an NSAID analgesic (pain reliever).  Here are some facts below:

I am presenting this product however I did not use it (which I suppose is fortunate for me!). However, UTI’s are common in Diabetics, so this is a good product for me to have on hand (always ask a doctor first if you are Diabetic/have any medical conditions).

The pills are small, and there are 24 of them, all in a sealed, air tight package. You are instructed to take 2 pills, 3 x per day, with a full glass of water for adults and children 12 years of age and older. I like that the pills are small, and they appear somewhat “candy coated”, making them even easier to swallow (at least in in my opinion).

Again, I did not use this product directly, however, I have used similar AZO products in the past, and did have positive results, so I do not foresee an issue with this product. Always good to keep on hand…you never know when a painful UTI will strike!

I received this product for free. This is an unbiased review.

Urinary Tract Infections are certainly no fun…bacteria essentially builds up and then causes pain or burning, and just overall discomfort. AZO has a line of products to help alleviate a UTI (but not cure…must go to a doctor!), including the new Cranberry Gummies.

I thought these would be perfect to try, seeing as Cranberry juice is always recommended to prevent UTIs, but I cannot drink it, as I am a Diabetic (juice is a huge NO, unless blood sugar is low!) These gummies are the equivalent of 1 glass of cranberry juice (per 2 gummies), according to the bottle. The bottle also states that “studies have been shown that cranberries can help prevent bacteria from attaching to the bladder wall and help maintain urinary tract cleanliness”. Sounds good to me!

I’ll admit, I am a sucker for gummies. Fish oil gummies, daily multi-vitamin gummies…it’s like a little treat per day! So I was certainly down to try these. I’m a little kid on the inside…it’s ok…right?

Here’s what they look like:

They come in mixed berry flavor, and the darker versus lighter purple gummies have different flavors. The darker gummy has a tart, potent cranberry flavor. Almost like an extract. It’s very sweet and tart at the same time, but also good. It leaves a cranberry after-taste, like most cranberry products do. The lighter purple gummy is less tart and strong in flavor. I like it better, it’s sweeter. It almost reminds me of a raspberry or strawberry type of flavor, with a cranberry aftertaste.

The gummies are dense but chewy, and very slightly waxy. Not as squishy as a fish oil gummy, and a little harder.  They come in shapes that  honestly resemble the cake emoji for the iPhone…I have no clue, that’s what I think of every time. LOL.

It was hard to get a pic of the label, since it was stretched around the bottle. But…Each 2 gummies has 15 calories and 4 grams of carbs with 2 grams of sugar. It also contains 500 mg of Cranberry Whole Fruit Powder.

Overall, I like them! As a diabetic and female, I am prone to UTIs, so I would consider buying these if I saw it in stores. As always, with any vitamin (gummy or not), do NOT exceed the recommended dosage. Doesn’t matter how good they taste! 4 stars.
