3 Benefits of Cranberry (Including Preventing UTIs)

Posted by Christine Jurzenski on

1. Cranberries can help prevent UTIs. Cranberries are packed with proanthocyanidins (PACs). There are two types of PACs, Type A & Type B. Type A helps with urinary tract infections. Type A PACs are found in cranberries and have a different structure than other fruits & veggies (so fetch). These PACs more actively promote anti-adhesion of harmful bacteria in the body hence why they work to get rid of those UTIs on your bladder wall. Doctors agree that you need at least 36mg of PACs to keep your UTIs at bay. Guess what? CRANEL has 500mg of PACs, so we got your back.
According to Dr. Mary Jane Minkin, a board-certified OB/GYN at Yale University School of Medicine:
“There is definitely data showing a decrease in incidence of recurrent UTIs in women taking cranberries with over 400 studies on the topic.”
2. Cranberries rank the highest with disease fighting antioxidants. Foods rich in antioxidants help cells avoid oxidizing which can be damaging. These crucial substances help protect cells against free radicals and deactivate oxygen molecules that negatively affect the body.
Seeds, and skins are particularly rich in the antioxidant goodness (including phenolics) which is why drinking only 'juice' can miss these benefits.
3. Cranberries are .packed with polyphenols. Polyphenols can improve digestion issues, weight management difficulties, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases. Flavonoids can neutralise free radicals, reducing the risk of cancer; and they work with resveratrol (science) to block cholesterol oxidation which lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease.
