INGREDIENTS & FURTHER INFORMATION
CONCENTRATION OF CRANBERRY EXTRACT 4:1
This extract is taken out at a 4:1 ratio, meaning that for every four parts of cranberry, one part is extracted, making this a highly concentrated solution. There are no fillers of any kind present in this solution.
CRANBERRY EXTRACT 4:1 SIDE EFFECTS
Provided the recommended amounts are adhered to, Cranberry Extract is safe to take. However, stomach discomfort may occur at larger doses. Should symptoms such as diarrhea or severe abdominal pain occur, reduce dosage. If they persist, discontinue use and consult a physician.
Allergic reactions are rare but not impossible. Discontinue use if you develop dizziness, labored breathing or swelling/itching of the tongue and throat.
The ziploc on the package just plain doesn't work, which is unfortunate.
That being said, the product is excellent. Low-cost, tastes reasonable and a good CoA for quality.
I personally mix the 1/4 tsp into some blueberries, which completely negates the taste.
The benefits of cranberry extend from the bladder to the gut. I recommend anyone interested in this product to review the benefits of A. Mucinophilia, a probiotic gut bacteria that cranberry helps to promote, on body composition.*

I have found it difficult to find cranberry capsules with only cranberry. The powder is perfect. I love the taste in water. Hope it aids in curing me of kidney stones. Very happy with this product.*

Not a big fan of straight cranberry juice. This powder works wonderfully in smoothies mixed with other ingredients. Not too strong. Using it to improve bladder function. Hoping for the best....*

The following is a list of clinical trials, most double-blinded and placebo-controlled, recorded at the National Medical Library, MEDLINE, as abstracted by GreenMedInfo for cranberry:
1. A cranberry concentrate is effective in preventing urinary tract infections in women who are subject to recurrent infections.

5. Cranberry compares favorably to the drug trimethoprim in the prevention of recurrent urinary tract infections in older women, without increasing the risk of antibiotic resistance/super-infection and/or fungal infection.

13. Cranberry ingestion has a protective effect against asymptomatic bacteriuria and symptomatic urinary tract infections in pregnancy.
14. Cranberry juice consumption has a favorable effect on plasma HDL-cholesterol concentrations in men.
15. Cranberry juice consumption improves vascular function in patients with coronary artery disease.
16. Cranberry juice consumption significantly prevents recurrent urinary tract infections.
17. Cranberry juice has anti-uropathogenic bacteria effects in the urine of healthy volunteers.
18. Cranberry juice supplementation reduces cholesterol oxidation and cell adhesion molecule concentrations in men.
19. Cranberry juice suppresses Helicobacter pylori infection in endemically afflicted populations.
20. Cranberry may reduce the risk of urinary tract infections by inhibiting biofilms in the bladder.
21. Cranberry significantly inhibits Escherichia Coli adhesion in the bladder.
22. Low-calorie cranberry juice can improve several risk factors of CVD in adults, including circulating TGs, CRP, and glucose, insulin resistance, and diastolic BP.
23. Reduction of bacteriuria and pyuria after ingestion of cranberry juice.
24. Regular drinking of cranberry juice reduces the recurrence of urinary tract infection.
25. The present work emphasizes the potential of berries in chemoprevention, especially CRC chemoprevention.
26. Berry fruits presented antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities in vitro and in vivo.
27. Cranberries might be used as a beneficial adjuvant treatment to prevent damage due to pyelonephritis in children with vesicoureteric reflux.

I got this product with the idea of mitigating the frequency of urinary tract infections (UTI) - so much has been written about it.
To my surprise, there is another very exciting reason to get it: gum disease ( http://jac.oxfordjournals.org/content/58/2/439.abstract ). It seems cranberries make life very difficult for certain types of bacteria.
I am now adding a couple of teaspoonfuls of it into juice and swish it around the mouth.*

This cranberry extract has a mild, pleasant flavor. It is not tart like fresh cranberries. I added 1/4 teaspoon to my chocolate-flavored protein smoothie.*
