These small, dark red berries have a long medical history in addition to a colorful culinary one. Specifically cranberry juice and cranberry extract appear to help prevent and even eliminate urinary tract infections.
Early American physicians successfully applied crushed cranberries to heal wounds. They also used cranberries as a remedy for the age-old malady known as scurvy, a disease caused by the lack of Vitamin C. It wasn’t too surprising, therefore, when modern scientists discovered that cranberries contain plentiful stores of this common antioxidant vitamin.
