Cranberries

Cranberries may reduce bladder infections. They also help to maintain a healthy heart and also may have anti-inflammatory benefits, as they have anti-fungal and antiviral properties. It is also thought that small amounts of cranberries may benefit kidney stone sufferers. The condensed tannins in cranberries have strong antioxidant properties.

Condensed tannins which are found in cranberries are not destroyed in cooking. These tannins are powerful antioxidants.

To combat urinary tract infections, 300 ml of cranberry juice can be drunk daily.
