Puritan’s Pride Cranberry Fruit Concentrate with C & E Review – Conclusion
This product appears to be a promising and unique way to achieve and sustain urinary tract health. It contains a unique blend of Cranberry and Vitamins C and E that when combined, may be able to help you prevent UTIs from occurring. However, consumer reviews we saw are mixed. Consumers criticized the exorbitantly high dosage recommendation. Puritan’s Pride recommends taking six capsules daily, which is extremely high relative to most other supplements. It suggests that each individual capsule is weak. This is consistent with other consumer reviews that claimed that this product is weak and reported that they did not experience any effects while taking these capsules. Furthermore, Puritan’s Pride offers very limited information about the risks and benefits of this product. There is nearly no additional information aside for the label facts that is offered on their website and it would hard to make an informed decision based on the information that they provide.
