The Health Benefits of Eating Cranberries


Cranberries are an excellent fruit.  They have many chemical properties that help fight infections. They are also rich in vitamin C.

Most of us know that cranberries help fight urinary tract infections. This is because the juice of the cranberry reduces the number of bacteria adhering to the body’s urinary tract lining. In fact, “a recent study at Rutgers University, suggest that woman can help maintain a healthy urinary tract by drinking one glass of cranberry cocktail twice a day. The anti-adhesion benefits of drinking a glass of cranberry cocktail starts within two hours and last for up to 10 hours.”

Besides having urinary tract benefits, did you know that Cranberries have other health benefits as well?

Additional benefits of Cranberries:

Circulatory System – Cranberries improve the body’s circulatory system

Gum Problems – Research has shown that cranberries help the body fight gum problems
