Health Benefits of Cranberry Juice

Click here to go straight to our recipes

I think the health benefits of cranberry juice far outweigh the less palatable taste of the tart cranberry. It's tempting to add sugar or sweetener but please try and resist to get the maximum benefits. Instead mix half a glass of cranberry juice with half a glass of sparkling water.
If you must sweeten it then use a teaspoon of honey or make a cocktail using other sweeter fruits such as grape juice.

When shopping you should only buy plump, firm, red berries which have not been squashed.

Cystitis - is an inflammation of the bladder caused by bacterial infection. It's more often found in women than in men and can re-occur again and again causing burning and stinging when passing urine: it can even cause fever and vomiting. Drinking at least 2 glasses of cranberry a day will help - as cranberry makes it difficult for bacteria to stick to the lining of the bladder. Make sure you also drink lots of water as well.

health benefits of cranberry juice The Heart - One of the less known health benefits of cranberry juice is that it can actually help fight off heart disease. By drinking 3 glasses of this juice daily you are actually increasing your levels of good cholesterol according to latest research which can actually reduce your chances of having a heart attack by 40%. Cranberry juice will also help raise antioxidants which help protect the heart from cell damage.

Metabolism - there is some evidence to suggest that cranberry juice increases metabolism by converting fats into fuel. Cranberries are low in calories.

Dental and Respiratory disease - another great health benefit of cranberry juice is it makes it difficult for some bacteria to stick to the surface of your gums and teeth, therefore stopping dental or respiratory problems before they even start.

The Skin - cranberry juice will detox your skin with the benefits of anti-oxidants, making it ideal if you suffer from acne or psoriasis.

Kidney Stones - some say that cranberry can prevent kidney stones forming but there has been little research to say for certain.
