Overview

Although fresh cranberries have tremendous nutritional properties, there are components of dried cranberries that are even more beneficial for your health. Dried cranberries actually contain more antioxidants than fresh cranberries due to the mineral concentration during the drying process. These antioxidants help fight free radicals in your body, which leads to improved health, a better immune system, and lower risks of getting an infection. Cranberries are famously known for fighting off UTI's (urinary tract infection), and dried cranberries are no different. These antioxidants also help prevent cardiovascular disease, and help to reverse the effects of aging.

Our Real Organic Cranberries provide a great balance between being sweet, moist, delicious, and tangy. They do not include any refined sugar, sulphites, or preservatives. They are suitable for a snack, or as a garnish for salads and meats at the dinner table.

Health Benefits of Dried Cranberries

Prevents Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)  - Cranberries are perhaps best known for their role in preventing UTIs, especially for those with recurrent infections. The high level of proanthocyanidins (PACs) in cranberries helps reduce the adhesion of certain bacteria to the urinary tract walls, therefore fighting off the infection.

A study published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology in February 2016 reported that while cranberry capsules have been shown to help urinary tract infections, cranberry juice is far less effective. The reason for this is that it takes an extremely large concentration of cranberry to prevent bacterial adhesion. This amount of concentration is not found in the juices we drink.

 Prevents Cardiovascular Disease  - Some evidence suggests that the polyphenols in cranberries may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) by preventing platelet build-up and reducing blood pressure via anti-inflammatory mechanisms.

 Slows Tumour Growth  - Research has shown that cranberries are beneficial in slowing tumor progression and have shown positive effects against prostate, liver, breast, ovarian, and colon cancers.

 Dental Health  - The same proanthocyanidins in cranberries that help prevent UTIs may also benefit oral health by preventing bacteria from binding to teeth, according to Researchers at the Center for Oral Biology and Eastman Department of Dentistry at the University of Rochester Medical Center. Cranberries may also be beneficial in preventing gum disease.
