    cream of tartar

    I take this once a day to keep UTI's down. I was wondering if there are any long term adverse effects?

    There is no scientific evidence that cream of tartar (tartaric acid) reduces UTIs, although it is often recommended as an herbal/non-traditional method of treatment for yeast infections. Used in large amounts it acts as a laxative. I will do a little more research, but there is not much available about this on-line.

    It works great to make your egg white meringue more stable though!
