Moreover, only a few people reported the presence of side effects, the most common being stomach pains. On the other hand, the researchers weren’t able to determine the effectiveness of cranberry products against antibiotics and probiotics in preventing further UTIs. The data wasn’t able to show benefits for these populations: elderly people, pregnant women, and people with bladder emptying problems.
Real benefits from cranberry products have been ascertained after expanding the scope of the review which included the latest available clinical data. However, researchers push for further studies to clarify which demographic infected with UTI would benefit the most from these products.
