dc.description.abstract Several antioxidants are found in cranberries and other products containing cranberries. The amount available within the products depends on the type and the distributor. Organic cranberry juices contain less sugar and more metal ions such as zinc. Less processing of organic juices also saves some of the antioxidant properties from being destroyed. Polyphenols have been documented to be in certain fruits and vegetables including high quantities in cranberries. A visual complex forms with certain polyphenols with the addition of ion samples including iron. Cranberries have more properties than just preventing cancer, they have also been shown to decrease risk related to kidney stone, urinary tract infections, lower LDL, help with ulcers, and prevent tooth decay.
