Berries are not only packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and an array of powerful, disease-fighting phytonutrients, but they also boost an individual's intake of omega-3 fatty acids.

Take blueberries sidekick, the cranberry. Did you know that eating cranberries can protect you against urinary tract infection, kidney stone formation, genital herpes and periodontal disease. A recent study reported that drinking one glass of cranberry juice daily was associated with a 6.4 percent increase in heart protective HDL cholesterol. So it is not all that surprising that the cousin to the blueberry is so powerful.

Cranberries contain among the highest levels of phenols of commonly consumed fruits.
Cornell University did a study that compared the phenolic compounds in common fruits found that cranberries were richest in phenolics, followed in descending order by apple, red grape, strawberry, pineapple and banana.

*A warning on Cranberries:

If you take the blood thinner warfarin, you may need to avoid drinking cranberry juice, as it seems to amplify the effect of the drug which can lead to serious bleeding issues.
