Cranberries & Urinary Health
Considered a superfood due to their high nutritional value and antioxidant content, Cranberries have been linked to a lower risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs).
Cranberries contain highly active compounds called “A-type proanthocyanins”. These compounds have been shown in studies to produce an anti-adhesion response to bacteria such as E.Coli - the main cause of UTIs. The anti-adhesion response prevents these bacteria from adhering to cells and allows for them to be naturally flushed out from the body.
Also rich in anthocyanins, Cranberries’ antioxidant effects may also help neutralise harmful free radicals in our bodies.
