Bacteria can cling to the walls of the urinary tract and multiply, causing painful, frequent urination. Research shows that cranberries contain compounds that stop bacteria from sticking, making cranberry juice a popular way to help treat and prevent infections. But you can get 3 times the antioxidant activity of cranberry juice and none of the sugar with Organic CranRich, the highly concentrated natural treatment for urinary tract infections.
Organic CranRich has a concentration of 36:1. This means it take 1 gram of organic CranRich extract to equal 36 grams of organic cranberries and is made with 100% organic cranberry fruit solids, without the any solvents, preservatives, added sugar, water, flavour or colour
Antioxidant Value: Cranberries are high on the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale. Research is showing that high ORAC fruits and vegetables may help protect against chronic age-related conditions. There are other reasons to like cranberries. They contain vitamins A, C, B and folic acid, as well as calcium, iron and potassium.
Breathing and Blood Vessels: There are also substances in cranberry that open blood vessels, and when blood vessels in the bronchial tubes are dilated, breathing is easier.
Cranberries contain significant amounts of flavonoids and polyphenolic compounds that inhibit low density lipoprotein oxidation, offering a natural defense against atherosclerosis.
Kidney and Bladder Stones: There is some evidence that cranberry may decrease the formation of calcium oxalate urinary stones. The authors of one study suggest "cranberry juice has anti-lithogenic properties and, as such, deserves consideration as a conservative therapeutic protocol in managing calcium oxalate urolithiasis."
Diuretic: Cranberries are a natural diuretic.
Ulcers: A high molecular weight constituent of cranberry has been shown to inhibit the adhesion of H. pylori to human gastric mucus in vitro, suggesting cranberry may be beneficial in the prevention of peptic ulcers through the inhibition of H. pylori adhesion to gastric mucus and stomach epithelium in test tube studies.
