Cranberries are in season. These red berries are a true superfood.
The December issue of Nutrition Journal has just published some new research, which demonstrates that flavonoids, present in high levels in cranberries promote healthy weight in those who regularly consumes cranberries.
Earlier this month Dr. Michael Greger published an article “Which Fruit Fights Cancer Better?” about cranberries. These berries were found to suppress the growth of human liver cancer cells in vitro. Other studies have found similar effects against human breast, colon, brain tumor, oral, and ovarian cancer cells. Cranberries also possess strong anti-cancer properties in cases with prostate cancer. 1
Berries are a good source of polyphenols, especially anthocyanins, micronutrients, and fiber. In epidemiological and clinical studies, these constituents have been associated with improved cardiovascular risk profiles. 2 Scientists recommend cranberries along with other berries as a heart-healthy diet.
Prevention of Urinary Tract Infections
Cranberries contain two compounds that seem to help keep certain bacteria (like E. coli) from attaching to the urinary tract wall. Studies offer evidence that women who drink cranberry juice may suffer fewer symptomatic urinary tract infections.
Add Cranberries to Green Smoothies
Fresh cranberries are usually very tart and not so tasty. In my family we add a handful of cranberries daily to our green smoothies. I usually buy several extra bags and freeze them, so that we can have them after the season is over.
