United States' Top 25 Nutritional Supplements

24. Cranberry

This fruit from a bog plant native to North America accounted for $13 million in 2003 sales, up 9.2 percent from 2002. The tiny berry’s popularity stems from its ability to limit adhesion of E. coli bacteria to the cell wall of the urinary tract, thus preventing infections. “There’s a significant amount of impressive evidence—more than 15 clinical studies—that show without any doubt that drinking 8 ounces of cranberry juice cocktail per day does significantly reduce or prevent urinary tract infections,” Blumenthal says. He also notes a couple of studies that show that freeze-dried cranberry juice in capsule form can be equally effective as a glass of juice, provided the capsules are taken with water. Other studies have found that cranberries are high in antioxidants and flavonoids and can help prevent kidney stones, stomach ulcers, gum disease, arteriosclerosis and cancer.
