Nutrition Facts & Health Benefits of Cranberries
Cranberries are a member of the heather family and related to blueberries, bilberries, and lingonberries. The most commonly grown species is the North American cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon), but other types are found in nature. Due to their very sharp and sour taste, cranberries are rarely eaten raw. In fact, they’re most often consumed as juice, which is normally sweetened and blended with other fruit juices. Other cranberry-based products include sauces, dried cranberries, and powders and extracts used in supplements. Cranberries are rich in various healthy vitamins and plant compounds, some of which have been shown to be effective against urinary tract infections (UTI).
Vitamins & Minerals
Cranberries are a rich source of several vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin C.
- Vitamin C: Also known as ascorbic acid, vitamin C is one of the predominant antioxidants in cranberries. It is essential for the maintenance of your skin, muscles, and bone.
- Manganese: Found in most foods, manganese is essential for growth, metabolism, and your body’s antioxidant system.
- Vitamin E: A class of essential fat-soluble antioxidants.
- Vitamin K1: Also known as phylloquinone, vitamin K1 is essential for blood clotting.
- Copper: A trace element, often low in the Western diet. Inadequate copper intake may have adverse effects on heart health.
Other Plant Compounds
Cranberries are very high in bioactive plant compounds and antioxidants — particularly flavonol polyphenols. Many of these plant compounds are concentrated in the skin — and are greatly reduced in cranberry juice.
- Quercetin: The most abundant antioxidant polyphenol in cranberries. In fact, cranberries are among the main fruit sources of quercetin.
- Myricetin: A major antioxidant polyphenol in cranberries, myricetin may have a number of beneficial health effects.
- Peonidin: Alongside cyanidin, peonidin is responsible for the rich red color of cranberries and some of their health effects. Cranberries are among the richest dietary sources of peonidin.
- Ursolic acid: Concentrated in the skin, ursolic acid is a triterpene compound. It’s an ingredient in many traditional herbal medicines and has strong anti-inflammatory effects.
- A-type proanthocyanidins: Also called condensed tannins, these polyphenols are believed to be effective against UTIs.
Prevention of Urinary Tract Infections
UTIs are among the most common bacterial infections — especially among women. They’re most often caused by the intestinal bacterium Escherichia coli (E. coli), which attaches itself to the inner surface of your bladder and urinary tract. Cranberries contain unique phytonutrients known as A-type proanthocyanidins or condensed tannins. A-type proanthocyanidins prevent E. coli from attaching to the lining of your bladder and urinary tract, making cranberries a potential preventive measure against UTIs. In fact, cranberries are among the richest fruit sources of proanthocyanidins — especially the A-type. A number of human studies indicate that drinking cranberry juice or taking cranberry supplements may reduce the risk of UTIs in both children and adults. Systematic reviews and meta-analyses support these findings, especially for women with recurrent UTIs. In contrast, a few studies have not found any significant benefits. Not all cranberry products are effective against UTIs. In fact, proanthocyanidins may be lost during processing, making them undetectable in many products.
On the other hand, cranberry supplements — which contain sufficient amounts of A-type proanthocyanidins — may be a useful preventive strategy.
Prevention of Stomach Cancer & Ulcers
Stomach cancer is a common cause of cancer-related death worldwide. Infection by the bacterium Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is considered a major cause of stomach cancer, stomach inflammation, and ulcers. Cranberries contain unique plant compounds known as A-type proanthocyanidins, which may cut your risk of stomach cancer by preventing H. pylori from attaching to the lining of your stomach. One study in 189 adults suggested that drinking 2.1 cups (500 ml) of cranberry juice daily may significantly reduce H. pylori infections. Another study in 295 children found that daily consumption of cranberry juice for 3 weeks suppressed the growth of H. pylori in about 17% of those infected.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. Cranberries contain various antioxidants that may be beneficial for heart health. These include anthocyanins, proanthocyanidins, and quercetin. In human studies, cranberry juice or extracts have proven beneficial for various heart disease risk factors. Cranberry products may help by:
- increasing your levels of HDL (good) cholesterol
- lowering levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol in people with diabetes
- protecting LDL (bad) cholesterol from oxidation
- decreasing stiffness in blood vessels among people with heart disease
- lowering blood pressure
- decreasing blood levels of homocysteine, thus cutting your risk of inflammation in blood vessels
The Bottom Line
Cranberries are widely consumed dried, as a juice, or in supplements. They’re a good source of a few vitamins and minerals — and exceptionally rich in several unique plant compounds. Some of these compounds may help prevent UTIs, stomach cancer, and heart disease.
