Why We Love Cranberries (And You Should, Too!)

People  consume cranberries in many different ways – through cranberry juices, cranberry jams, fresh cranberries and the ever-so-popular dried cranberry snack.

When it comes to healthy eating, cranberries top the list, due to the huge amount of anti-oxidants and nutritional value they contain. Cranberries have become a strong contestant in the ‘Superfood’ group. If you don’t know what a ‘Superfood’ Is, according to Google dictionary: ” A Superfood is a nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being”

Health Benefits Of Cranberries

  1. They Are Antioxidant Rich:
    – Meaning, a substance that inhibits oxidation, especially one used to counteract the deterioration of stored food products.
  2. Cancer fighting:
    – In this day in age, there are so many foods that promote cancer. It is in our best interest to consume healthy foods that prevent these cancer cells from forming in our bodies
  3. High source of vitamin C
    – During this time of the year, our immune systems become weak due to all the contagious germs going around making us sick. Cranberries are great for immune support
  4. Dietry fibre
    – I am sure you always read how important it is to have fibre in your daily diet. A good amount of fibre promotes good gut and digestion health
  5. Prevents and Treats UTI’s (Urinary Tract Infections)
    – A UTI is an infection in any part of your urinary system — your kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. Most infections involve the lower urinary tract — the bladder and the urethra. They are easily formed and very tough and painful to get rid of. So best you prevent these from happening
  6. Good for your dental hygiene 
    – Cranberries prevent all sorts of dental problems like gum diseases and infections.
