Needs more research:
Some say high doses of Vit C can acidify urine and thus help treat UTI's, but research on this has only used doses up to 4 grams a day and found that dose didn't acidify urine enough to kill bacteria.

Their only function is to maintain god given health. Urochrome is a normal product of oxidation. ...Read more
