Do you love and crave cranberries? Well you are in luck. This small tart berry has been shown to contain more antioxidant phenols than other fruits, and they may play a role in helping to prevent heart disease, certain cancers and UTIs (urinary tract infections).
Has anyone ever told you if you have a urinary tract infection drink cranberry juice? There is a good reason for that. The Proanthocyanidins (PACs) in cranberries acts as a barrier to bacteria. This prevents it from attaching onto the bladder or any other parts of the urinary tract lining. Another important factor is that cranberries can help protect the brain from neurological damage (unpublished results.)
Cranberry’s have a long history dating all the way back to the Native Americans by using it for medical and healing purposes.
If you are the type of person that cannot stand the taste of cranberries, try Ellura, it is a natural cranberry supplement that contains 36 mg of cranberry PAC’s. A 30-day supply is at a cost of $44.97 and can be found at www.myellura.com. Either by drinking the actual cranberry juice or taking the cranberry supplement, cranberries are good for anyone’s health.
