Cranberries (Vaccinium macrocarpon)

Cranberry is an evergreen shrub that produces sharp and sour tasting berries that grows in wet habitats in the United States.

They are widely known for their ability to prevent and reduce symptoms associated with urinary tract infections by stopping bacterial growth.

Historically, the fruits or leaves were used for bladder, stomach, and liver disorders, as well as diabetes, wounds, and other conditions. Rich in polyphenols, they are associated with antibacterial, antiviral, anti-mutagenic, anti-carcinogenic, antitumorigenic, anti-angiogenic, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. 

Rich in antioxidants, studies have also shown they may improve cardiovascular health.
