Health Benefits of Cranberries 
Cranberries for your Health!
Cranberries offer several important health benefits.  Today, health researchers are producing reliable evidence that cranberries  are not only a healthy low calorie fruit but they can also play a  significant role in preventing urinary tract infections and reducing the  risk of gum disease.  In other health areas, cranberries are showing great promise in alleviating more serious aliments such as heart disease, kidney failure and cancer.

Many physicians and other health professionals now believe there is a  clear association between a diet high in fruits and vegetables and a low risk  of chronic disease. Phytonutrients (naturally derived plant compounds), particularly  antioxidants, are increasingly being shown to help optimize human health.

Cranberries contain proanthocyanidins (PACs) that can prevent the adhesion  of certain of bacteria, including E. coli, associated with urinary  tract infections to the urinary tract wall. The anti-adhesion properties  of the cranberry inhibits the bacteria associated with gum disease  and stomach ulcers.

Recent  scientific research shows that cranberries contain  significant amounts of vitamin C and A and as noted above are extremely high in antioxidants and other phytonutrients known to help protect against heart disease, cancer and other diseases.
