Elusive cranberry juice

 The only kind I can buy in shops is laced with sugar and water. Can you actually buy pure cranberry juice?

Yep.  I drink it all the time.  Here in the U.S. you can buy it in its pure form in Trader Joe's for example, but I am sure places like Sprouts and Whole Foods have it as well.  Get ready, though, for super sourness. You've got to take it like medicine (or more like a shot of everclear) if you're going to take it straight.

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.

I live in the UK so it seems to be a little harder. Are dried cranberries good? I got some and they are infused with pineapple juice and have a small amount of sunflower oil as well.

Dried cranberries will be great for you as long as you don't go crazy cuzz of the sugar.  I don't know if they have the same potency as the juice.  It's the polyphenols that really count when it comes to arterial/heart issues and that's what we're most int'd in here.  And those polyphenols will be in the juice or dried cranberries of course.  All the related studies that I found used the juice or extract, though, so I can't really comment on how potent dried cranberries are compared to the juice.

Let us know if you find anything out:

Well, that's not totally true.  For example, one study said: 

"Intake of berries, alongside other factors, was associated with a 60% decline in heart disease and stroke."
