Cranberries have been utilized medicinally for hundreds of years, and more recently have demonstrated a broad array of health benefits in a number of research studies. Consumption of cranberry juice has been associated with prevention of urinary tract infections, and several well-designed clinical studies have confirmed this association. For years, the preventative effects of cranberries were assumed to be due to the acidity of the fruit; however the majority of clinical studies reveal other active compounds present in the berry.

More than twenty acclaimed researchers presented the results of their latest studies on the positive effects of berries on human health at the 2009 Berry Health Benefits Symposium. Dr. Amy Howell and researchers from Rutgers University presented their findings, “Bacterial Anti-adhesion Activity of Cranberry Proanthocyanidins,” demonstrating compounds in cranberries associated with preventing bacterial adhesion in the urinary tract, stomach, and oral cavity.

So, besides reduces risk of urinary infections, cranberries can inhibit the aggregation of bacteria that cause dental plaque, and based on evaluation of several vitro screening tests, it has been suggested that the proanthocyanidin compounds found in cranberry may exhibit some anti-carcinogenic activity. Cranberry extract has been shown to inhibit low density lipoprotein oxidation. Since this process is believed to be part of what can cause heart disease, prevention of oxidation through cranberry supplementation can potentially reduce the risk of heart disease. Some medical professionals and specialists believe that quinic acid abundant in cranberry may help to prevent the development of kidney stones. (via nutrasanus.com).
