Cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon) is a native evergreen shrub that grows throughout North America. For centuries, cranberry has been used as both food and medicine. In particular, the ripe fruits were primarily used as a traditional medicine for bladder and kidney ailments among Native Americans. An increasing amount of research suggests that cranberry is a unique fruit in that it may provide two different pathways for health: through microbial anti-adhesion activity and other health benefits related to antioxidant activities.1
