Cranberries For Prevention And Health

Posted by Deb Spinelli on 8/27/2015
Native Americans were the first people to harvest cranberries for food in North America. They also used these distinctive red berries for medicinal purposes and incorporated the juices into dyes. First introduced to European settlers by the Algonquian peoples of Massachusetts, cranberries have been an American staple ever since.

In addition to being tasty, cranberries are also packed with antioxidants. Considered by many to be a “superfood,” cranberries contain more disease-fighting antioxidants than nearly any other fruit or vegetable. They are also rich in vitamin C and fiber, as well as vitamin A, folate, and potassium.

In addition to these essential nutrients, cranberries also contain high amounts of PACs (phenolic flavonoid phytochemicals). Recent studies suggest that PACs are effective against inflammation, diabetes, bacterial infections, and even cancer. Due to their high antioxidant content, cranberries may also lower cholesterol plaque and protect against cardiovascular disease.

Perhaps the most common medicinal use of cranberries, however, is in the treatment of urinary tract infections. Consumption of cranberries increases the acid content of urine. This tendency of cranberries to turn urine acidic, coupled with the fruit's ability to fight bacterial infections, makes it particularly well suited to fight urinary tract infections. It can also prevent stones from growing in the urinary tract.

The cranberry's ability to combat urinary tract issues can in part be explained by the unique nature of the fruit's PACs, which act as a barrier to prevent bacteria from collecting along the urinary tract lining. The ability of cranberries to heal, or even halt, urinary tract infections is especially pronounced in women who suffer from recurrent UTIs.

Delicious, healthy, and medicinally useful, cranberries truly are one of nature's strongest superfoods. Whether you prefer whole cranberries, cranberry sauce, or cranberry juice, this nutrient-rich fruit has been shown to possess numerous health benefits. Cranberries are equally healthy in many forms.
