Cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon) is one of only three species of fruit native to North America. The other species are blueberry (Vaccinium angustifolia) and bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus). Cranberry typically grows in bogs and is a member of the same family as blueberry and bilberry. Cranberry is found in marshy land in northern North America and Asia and in Northern and Central Europe.The leaves are evergreen, oval or elliptical, and less than 1.2 cm (0.5 inch) long. Its small flowers appear in June and have a four-lobed, rose-tinted corolla. Its round, crimson berries, which ripen in September, are about the size of currants and are often spotted; they have an acid taste.

The antioxidants contained in cranberries can delay aging and though no conclusive studies in humans have been done so far to establish cancer preventing effects of cranberries, it has been shown that antioxidants in general can prevent certain cancers. Additionally, experiments with cranberry extracts in tissue culture provide evidence that the antioxidants and proanthocyanidins can reduce cancer growth.
Cranberry extracts have antibacterial activity that can be beneficial for the treatment of Helicobacter pylori infections, a bacterium that can cause stomach ulcers and plague.
Cranberry has been used as an herbal remedy for high cholesterol. The tannins in cranberries prevent the oxidation of cholesterol, an effect that can lower the levels of bad cholesterol in the blood and promote heart health. The anti-inflammatory effects of tannins can be of additional benefit for the natural prevention of atherosclerosis.
