Cranberries and cranberry pills. Cranberry fruit (Vaccinium sp.) is rich in vitamins C and E, antioxidants and anthocyanins. A 200 milligram (mg) concentrated cranberry pill is equivalent to 5000 mg of fresh cranberries. Cranberry helps to maintain a healthy urinary tract and bladder. Anthocyanins may act by preventing attachment of E. coli bacteria (one cause of urinary tract infections) to the bladder wall. Cranberry may also prevent formation of bladder stones and relieve symptoms of cystitis.
