Cranberry Health Benefits
The cranberry has been long revered for its abundance of health properties. For over 50 years, Ocean Spray has been studying this tiny berry to understand and unlock its many benefits. Over the years, we’ve been able to help turn folklore into science, thus supporting a growing body of evidence that suggests cranberries contribute to whole body health, particularly urinary tract health.
Unique Health Benefits
Cranberry products contribute to whole-body health, particularly urinary tract health, and are rich in powerful nutrients. They are like Mother Nature’s super fruit, containing more naturally occurring polyphenol antioxidants than many other popular fruits!
Most importantly, they contain unique compounds called Proanthocyanidins or PACs that cleanse and purify your body. That’s the true power of the cranberry.
How do Cranberries Work?
So what’s responsible for this cleanse and purify benefit? While other fruits boast about their antioxidant benefits, the cranberry is one of the only common fruits that contains the unique polyphenols called Proanthocyanidins or PACs. These compounds have been known to “disable” certain harmful bacteria by preventing them from attaching to cells in the body. The bacteria are then harmlessly and naturally flushed out of the body.
