Our Conclusive Review About Puritan’s Pride Cranberry Fruit Concentrate with C & E
This product appears to be decent. It is a unique cranberry supplement because it also contains vitamins C&E for additional support. However, the dosage is exorbitant and suggests that this product is weak. Puritan’s Pride offers nearly no information about this supplement. There is an abundance of cranberry supplements available on the market and with so many different options, it is important to make a well-informed decision about what supplement you will rely on for optimal urinary tract health and to avoid recurring UTIs. You cannot make an informed decision based on the information that Puritan’s Pride provides.
