Fruits Nutritional Supplements Day 7(Cranberries)

Half a cup of cranberries (47 grams) provides about 23 calories and contains about six grams of carbohydrates and 1.9 grams of fibre. Cranberries also contain Vitamin C, Vitamin K and Manganese.

These fruit protect from urinary tract infections and are anti-viral and anti-bacterial. They contain quinic acid, which prevents calcium and phosphate ions from reacting to form kidney stones. 

People with recurring kidney stones will benefit from drinking cranberry juice daily.

Cranberries are heart-healthy, improving blood vessel function and protecting against heart attack or stroke. 

Pterostilbene, a powerful antioxidant compound found in cranberries helps lower cholesterol.

They also help prevent cancer. Phytonutrients in cranberries protect from breast cancer and their proanthocyanidins are toxic to cancer cells, blocking tumour growths in the lung, prostate, breast and leukemia cancer cells.

Drink Cranberries always, and I bet you; your health will certainly improve.
