Cranberry juice isn’t usually a “go to” juice, but it should be!
Cranberries help prevent:
- cancers, such as breast, lung, colon and prostate.
- urinary tract infections.
- damage caused by free raticals (they are rich in antioxidants).
- tooth decay.
- inflammation in the stomach.
Always buy 100% Cranberry juice (no juice cocktails!), you can always mix it with another 100% juice if you can’t drink it plain. It is tart, but I actually like it over ice with a little zest of orange. Open Nature is cheaper than some of the other brands out there.
Adding cranberries to recipes is another great way to get in this cancer-fighting fruit.
Consult with your phyisician to see if cranberries are right for you. Some research shows that it may increase kidney stones.
