Cranberries are used against cystitis as they have been valued for their nutritional and medicinal properties for a long time. The cranberry (Latin Vaccinium macrocarpon) is small, round and bright red. The red berry is native to northeaster America and is cultivated extensively. The pulp is firm, crisp and sour. It is mostly consumed as dried fruit and usually sugar is added to mask the sour taste. Fresh cranberries are rich in vitamins C, B6, K, provitamin A, iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, sodium, folic acid and especially phytochemicals such as polyphenols and anthocyanins. Since the 17th century, the berry has been used to relieve gastric distress, liver problems and intestinal diseases. Nowadays, cranberry products are widely used to treat urinary tract infections. Especially cranberry juice or juice powder is very effective as it mostly contains the soluble PACs (proanthocyanin).
