Cranberries are higher in antioxidants than even blueberries. They can block the bacteria that harm teeth and eventually gums. So does low sugar peanut butter and chewing gum with Xylatol.

I've tried cranberries for various health ailments, and I'm not sure if they worked. From my experience, probiotics work better.

Cranberries, cranberry juice or fruit pills are popular natural alternatives for urinary tract infections as well. While they do not get rid of the bacteria, they aid in easing symptoms and even help reduce a person's risk of developing recurrent UTIs. People who may have more serious cases of UTIs may need to turn to a doctor for professional help.
