More About Cranberry Powder (Organic)
As a great source of various vitamins and antioxidants, wild cranberries are believed to have a wide range of benefits when consumed. Recent research has found a link between the nutrients within cranberries to a lower risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs) as well as decreasing the smell of urine in those suffering from incontinence – this is due to the high level of the antioxidant proanthocyanidins (PACs) found within cranberries. Commercially available cranberry juices don’t tend to contain as high levels of proanthocyanidins.
There has also been some evidence to suggest that the polyphenols contained within cranberries can help to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), with a 2019 systematic review found that adding cranberries into your diet could help manage several risk factors for CVD including systolic blood pressure (blood pressure during a contraction of the heart muscle). The same review also found links between cranberries helped to reduce body mass index and improve levels of high-density lipoprotein or good cholesterol within the body.
According to researchers at the Center for Oral Biology and Eastman Department of Dentistry at the University of Rochester Medical Center in New York, the antioxidant content within cranberries may also benefit oral health by preventing bacteria from binding to the tooth surface as well as helping to prevent gum disease.
Cranberry powder is also a great supplement for sources of vitamins E & C, as well as a great source of fibre. Vitamin C is a powerful natural antioxidant that has been said to help block the damage caused by free radicals within the body, as well as helping to improve iron absorption from plant sources and more. Vitamin E can also be found within cranberry powder and helps to play a role in immune function, helping to prevent or delay chronic conditions associated with free radical damage.
