Sadly, women are more likely to get a UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) than men. Some experts rank your lifetime risk of getting one as high as 1 in 2 - with many women having repeat infections, sometimes for years on end. In women, the urethra is short and straight, making it easier for germs to travel into the bladder.
Not only are UTI's painful (and just general annoying) but they can also become a serious problem if left untreated.
The good news is that you help prevent getting a UTI with our Mixed Berry Probiotic Ball.. Let us break this down for you….
