The Latest on Cranberry Health
Cranberries stimulate our senses with their brilliant colour and their tart and
refreshing taste. And, they are intriguing because of the remarkable health benefits
nature has packed into these glistening red berries.
Beyond their vitamins and minerals, intensely coloured fruits like cranberries contain
a powerful array of natural antioxidants that help protect our bodies against disease.
Proanthocyanidins are potent antioxidants that give cranberries their unique anti-adhesion
benefits to help prevent disease-causing bacteria from adhering to the urinary tract.
Recent research from Rutgers University found that the anti-adhesion benefits of
a glass of cranberry cocktail start within two hours of consumption and can last
for up to ten hours.
