4 Health Benefits of Cranberries

October 16, 2014 5:04 pm

You love to add tart cranberries to all of your holiday breads, sauces, and even cocktails, but did you know that there are actually hidden health benefits in all of those seasonal treats? Cranberries are packed full of vitamins and antioxidants, and they just might make you feel a bit less guilty about eating that extra dessert. Here are a few of the most common health benefits of cranberries.

  1. Cranberries contain a great deal of phytonutrients, or plant chemicals filled with disease-preventing compounds that turn into antioxidants in the body. These tiny phytonutrients are involved with inhibiting cancer cells from spreading throughout the body.
  2. Cranberries decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease by decreasing the body’s levels of “bad” cholesterol, or LDL cholesterol. This lowers blood pressures, inhibits blood clots, and can even prevents coronary artery disease.
  3. Cranberries are a good source of vitamin C, vitamin E, and fiber, all of which are essential daily nutrients.
