Cranberry By Montara Peavy
  • Vaccinium macrocapron
  • Oral method of administration via beverages,
    extracts, capsules, and tablets
  • Common uses include wounds, urinary disorders,
    diarrhea, diabetes, stomach aliments, liver
    aliments, dental health, potential
  • anticancer and antiviral agent
  • Side effects diarrhea and gastrointestinal
  • Active Components Antioxidants-proanthocyanidins
    a class of anthocyanosides

  • Helps control of growth
  • E. coli
  • Proteus bacteria
  • H. pylori

Mechanism of Actions
Proanthocyanidins prevent the oxidation of
vitamin C to dehydroascorbate by providing
hydrogen ions which reduce glutathione - keeping
the levels of the active form of vitamin C
(ascorbate) higher.
Anthocyanosides stabilize phospholipids of the
endothelial cells and enhance synthesis of
collagen and mucopolysaccharides and therefore
help maintain the structural integrity of the
arterial walls.

dangerously increase the risk of toxic effects
from digoxin, this herb should not be taken with
this medication. Corticosteroids - Licorice may
increase the effects of corticosteroid
medications. Insulin - Licorice may enhance
some of the adverse effects of insulin. Laxative
s - Licorice may cause substantial potassium loss
in people taking stimulant laxatives. Oral

developing high blood pressure and low potassium
levels when they took licorice while on oral
contraceptives. Therefore, you should avoid
licorice if you are taking birth control
