Cranberries aren’t just a traditional holiday staple – they are extremely healthy to eat on a regular basis and can provide you with many benefits. Cranberries are a strong antioxidant and are filled with vitamins and nutrients including vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin K, manganese, calcium, iron and fiber. They are also very low in saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium, as well as low calorie, making them great to eat every day.
Eating cranberries regularly can also help reduce inflammation, keep your urinary tract healthy and working properly, help prevent ulcers, help with dental health and hygiene, and protect against cancer and cardiovascular disease. With all these amazing health benefits it’s no wonder cranberries are considered a superfood!
You can add cranberries into your diet by eating them raw, dried, cooked, roasted, blended and even in the form of supplements. You can add them into a smoothie or on top of your yogurt, cook them down into a sauce which goes great on meat, add them into a salad, or just eat them on their own as a snack. It may taste delicious, but make sure to avoid cooking and eating cranberries with added sugar.
