To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Works great! Seems to be stronger/more effective than most other cranberry supplements. And I love that they don't contain a bunch of other ingredients that other cranberry supplements often do, like Vitamin C, Magnesium, beeswax, glycerin, etc. It's just cranberry inside a gelatin capsule... that's it! And I appreciate that. Would definitely recommend!
I got these as a supplement for chronic UTI and they have made the world of difference. I take them every other day, unless I feel that weird feeling of a UTI coming on, and then I up the dosage to one per day. In the last year, I have had one UTI when previously, it was more often that I had one than I didn't. I think these are wonderfully made, and they seem to do the trick. I wish they were a little bit smaller, but most supplements seem to be around this size, so I shouldn't complain.
I bought two of this for my two grandmas. So sad they had already opened it and then I found out the most important information is covered! The expiration date is covered on purpose for sure because both bottles are like this. I though this is a higher dosage so I bought it. I should have just stayed with Trunature.
Like most people, I'm drawn to a cranberry supplement as a way to encourage urinary tract health. I'm a paraplegic with chronic UTI's and during this health pandemic I'm trying to be particularly proactive about avoiding any type of infection as much as possible.
While I've always picked up my supplements at a neighborhood store, the truth is that's always hit-and-miss in terms of product, brand, and pricing. As it's much safer these days to simply not get out, I began exploring Amazon and this is my first foray into Amazon's world of supplements. I was drawn to this product because it promises the need to only take one a day and, as such, also serves up nearly four months worth of supplements.
Since other reviews have mentioned concerns about expiration dates, I'll note that this was checked and there's no issue. My expiration date is 4/2024.
The pills are larger than what I'd been taking. So, if you have difficulty swallowing that should be a consideration. My only real concern, however, was that the product arrived with a bit of a loose cap. It was seal-packed, so I wasn't worried about safety. However, in terms of maintaining freshness I'd prefer to make sure the cap is a bit tighter. That's a minor issue in my book and not a reason to take away a star.
This is a rapid-release product with 25,000mg. per capsule. It's fruit extract - the only other ingredient is gelatin (hence, the gel cap). There are no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, preservatives, starch, lactose, milk, soy, gluten, sugar, wheat, yeast, fish, or sodium. They have really no taste to them.
My previous brand has been a little more commonly known and definitely had less strength at 4200mg. It had a handful of more ingredients and was considered a two-a-day product. It typically lasted 2 months.
So far, I'm happy with the switch. The value is solid without resorting to "cheap." Other than a minor packaging issue, the product arrived as expected and labeling indicates it is as described. I'm able to take the product daily and it seems to be serving its purpose. While I will monitor product packaging in the future, I would easily buy again.
If this listing is in error, it certainly needs to be corrected immediately. Today I received 1 bottle not 2. My order shows that it's for 1 pack of 2. Shipping 1 bottle instead of 2 is mistreating customers. Product description clearly states "pack of 2". Doesn't that mean a pack of 2 bottles? I read reviews that said they got 1 bottle. This is supposed to be a stronger 'serving' of cranberry supplement but for my money and having to swallow the oversize capsule instead of the nice oval softgel; yeah I think we will go back to the smaller softgel. Will be changing my subscription back to softgel & likely in a different brand even though we have switched to Puritans Pride in other supplements.
My wife was always getting a UTI. The doctor told her she needs to drink cranberry juice but she hates the strong taste of it. A friend of her's told me about these cranberry pills so I ordered the bottle for my wife and she loves them. No more UTI's, no after taste, and these pills are more healthy than the juice. The price isn't bad, Walmart is a little cheaper but you get only 60 pills.
I still love the 60 capsule product. But the last time I ordered it, I was so enthused that I got the 120 capsule bottle. The date was dubious and the cranberry powder brown. Worst of all, there was an unpleasant taste even as I swallowed it whole. So I am very disappointed and wish I had sent it back. Instead I braved it (stupid of me), disliked it; then a couple of days ago I switched to my great little bottle.. You can see in the photo that the date is clearly revealed; the product inside its normal bright red. I wish the people responsible for this product would not foist the old undesirable capsules off on unsuspecting loyal customers. Dang!
Original review: I do not like taking a lot of pills. But I do need cranberry in my system. This item requires me to take only one a day. I like this product a lot.
I used to get UTIs all the time, esp after being intimate with my husband. I was tired of visiting the minute clinic all the time for antibiotics, so I finally decided to try these. I don't take them every day, but I do take them whenever I feel the symptoms of a UTI start. Before it can turn into a full blown UTI I take one capsule and it always works. They do the job. One capsule has those bacteria gone almost immediately and as a result the UTI never develops :)
UPDATE: It's been nearly a year since my review, and I just wanted to come here and say that these STILL work great! I have been UTI free ever since I started taking these. Thank you Puritan's for creating a cranberry capsule that actually works!
It has been a lifelong battle of mine that I am extremely prone to UTI’s. Takes next to nothing for one to come creeping on & for that reason I have tried numerous brands of cranberry pills. Most recently on Azo, I was seeking something that would compare but possibly be a little more cost effective. These fit the bill for cost but also grabbed my attention as you are only recommended to take 1 pill a day vs the 2 I was taking with Azo. Both of these factors were great, but I feel a huge difference with these! I try to take one daily however recently while on vacation for a few days I forgot. As I feel a UTI creeping I immediately took one of these - in the past with Azo I would be lucky if in a few days I would feel a difference after the first symptoms. With one of these paired with some water - in a matter of 2 hours I feel better!!! Highly recommend.
