Benefits Of Cranberries

Benefits Of Cranberries

From food to medicine to making dyes for clothes, cranberries have a long standing history of being a versatile berry.

Can you remember the first time you encountered cranberry?

I’m willing to bet it may have had to do with Thanksgiving Dinner (anyone else find it oddly satisfying to see perfect “can lines” after dumping out the cranberry sauce? Mmmmm).

Well, these bold berries easily deserve a spotlight on your plate year round!

Not only do they have a high nutrient and antioxidant content, but they are also low in calories. Half a cup of cranberries has only 25 calories - a snacker’s DELIGHT!

Nutritional Profile Of Cranberries

These beautiful berries may be small… but they are certainly MIGHTY. Each one is full of:

  • Vitamin C - A powerful natural antioxidant that blocks damaging free radicals.

  • Vitamin E - A fat-soluble antioxidant involved in immune functions. Helps prevent or delay free radicals that cause chronic disease.

  • Phytonutrients - And other elements such as vitamin K and manganese that help protect your body from harmful free radicals while offering inflammation-reducing and cancer-preventing properties.

  • Fiber -  The high fiber content significantly lowers your risk of developing: gastrointestinal diseases, stroke, coronary heart disease, diabetes, obesity and hypertension. It also improves insulin sensitivity, enhances weight loss and lowers blood and cholesterol levels.

  • Yes, yes and MORE YESSSSSSSS. Go, cranberries, go!

    Now let’s dive a bit deeper into how cranberries can improve your health and wellness:
