Overall Evaluation:
Kyolic's Kyo-Dophilus Probiotics Plus Cranberry Extract offers a unique formula designed to help support the urinary tract and digestive health.* The main ingredient in this product is cranberries or CranMax extract. CranMax extract offers a more powerful extract of cranberry without throwing away the best part of this red berry fruit.

All parts of the cranberry fruit is used to help preserve the anti-oxidant properties including the anti-adhesion properties that help the bad bacteria from adhering to the urinary walls where infections can take place.* Overall, we think this is a great product combining the powerful benefits of cranberries and probiotic bacteria, but the 1 Billion CFUs strength of the probiotic bacteria is low compared to other probiotic products without cranberry extract.
