Cranberries are an excellent source of vitamins C and E, a very good source of dietary fibre, and a good source of manganese and vitamin K. Cranberries contain flavonoids (it's what gives their skin such colour) which may play a role in preventing cancers, inflammation and beurological diseases. One of the flavonoids, proanthocyanadin has been widely studied for its effect on bacteria, particularly those that trigger urinary tract infections (UTI's) as cranberries have had success as a treatment.
