Why Cranberries Are More Than Just a Juicy Treat

Why Cranberries Are More Than Just a Juicy TreatPucker up – it’s the perfect time of the year to eat cranberries! These red glossy berries add a tangy punch to fall and winter recipes while providing much-needed vitamins, minerals, and a source of antioxidants.

If the naturally low sugar content – only 2 g per half cup – make plain cranberries too acidic to palate, you can still enjoy their benefits from a juice or concentrate. These benefits include:

Reduces Oxidative Stress

Your body deals with oxidative stress every day. Thankfully cranberries are loaded with antioxidants to help offset the oxidative stress that’s caused by unstable free radicals.* The antioxidant activity of CranRich® Super Strength Cranberry Concentrate is valued at 10,000 ORAC units per 100 g.

Supports Urinary Tract Health*

Cranberries have a long history of use for supporting urinary tract health Thanks to their high concentration of proanthocyanidins.*

Nutritional Support

Cranberries offer an array of vitamins, trace minerals, antioxidants, and other micronutrients that help fill nutritional gaps—including vitamins C, E, and K, manganese, copper and are a source of tannins, anthocyanins, and flavonoids.
