  1. Cranberries are an excellent source of essential daily nutrients such as fiber, vitamin E, and vitamin C.
  2. Cranberries contain quite a bit of phytonutrients, also known as plant chemicals. They are loaded with disease-preventing compounds that transform into antioxidants. Perhaps the biggest benefit is that phytonutrients prevent cancer cells from spreading throughout the body.
  3. Cranberries lower the body's levels of LDL, or bad cholesterol. As a result, one's risk of cardiovascular disease also decreases. You should also eat your cranberries because they help prevent blood clots and coronary artery disease, and lower blood pressure.
