Cranberries have an impressive array of phytonutrients in addition to vitamin C.  They can taste pretty bitter to some, but that’s just due to their limited sugar content.  They have an excellent nutrition profile, being rich in manganese, vitamin E, vitamin K1, & copper.  They also contain a significant amount of antioxidants called flavanol polyphenols, which can improve health.  What makes cranberries unique from other fruits is that their juices & extracts help prevent urinary tract infections.  A-Type proanthocyanidins are the compounds thought to be responsible for this effect, as they can prevent bacteria from attaching to the lining of the bladder & urinary tract.
