Cranberry products, including juice and supplements, decrease the incidence of certain bacterial infections. There is an abundance of clinical evidence that supports this concept in the case of urinary tract infections in some people. Further study should be able to establish a precise and systematic approach to using cranberry products in the prevention of urinary tract infections and decreasing the overall incidence of this problem in the population. In addition, cranberry products may decrease the extent of infections by Helicobacter pylori, the bacterial species that causes gastric ulcers, as well as bacterial infections associated with plaque formation on teeth. Finally, preliminary observations suggest that cranberry may have cardio-protective and anticancer properties.
