In brief: Intriguing research
Cranberry juice is rich in d-mannose which can treat/prevent urinary infections.
New research shows the antioxidants in it can improve arterial dilation & may help arteries be less stiff. It looks like cranberry juice can prevent arteriosclerosis but it is not yet clear if it "cleans out" arteries- more research is needed- but it may reduce calcium deposits. See my comment for links to more info.

Here is a report on one promising study: http://blog.lef.org/2012/03/cranberry-prevents-hardening-arteries.html More info here: http://www.naturalnews.com/035249_hardening_of_the_arteries_cranberries_remedies.html This may work better combined with other nutrients to prevent heart disease like Vitamin K. An article I wrote on using vitamins to prevent heart disease is at http://drrandybaker.com/
