Cranberry

The cranberry, which originates from North America, has long been known for its positive effects on the urinary tract.
 
The so-called proanthocyanidines in the berries have been shown to inhibit the adhesion of bacteria in the urinary tract.
 
Antioxidant substances in the cranberry have also shown heart- and vessel-protecting properties as well as anticancer and antimutagenic (DNA-protecting) effects in studies.
