It’s Friday again and now things are starting to settle down for a period. I did not post very often, because school eats all my time. I still have some school projects to do and the exams session is almost here. I also remember you that The Shadow Tour is on until 20th January, 2013. So, for today, I invite you to read the benefits of cranberries.
1. Treats Urinary Tract Infections
Cranberry juice contains proanthocyanidins, which help to prevent Escherichia coli from sticking to the walls of the uterus and bladder. One glass of juice a day is all you need to prevent and heal urinary tract infections.
2. Fights Cancer
Laboratory studies have shown that cranberry extracts can prevent breast cancer cells from multiplying. Other studies showed that cranberries helped to inhibit the development of cancerous cells in lab animals. Other cancers that may be prevented by using cranberries are colon, prostate and lung.
3. Anti-aging Properties
The antioxidants contained in cranberries will help your body to get rid of all the free radicals which contribute to the aging process. They will not only help your skin to look young, but your internal organs will also be able to function longer without problems.
4. Improves Your Immune System
The antioxidants work hard to flush out the harmful toxins which suppress the immune system. Once these are removed, your immune system will be strong so that you can ward off just about any sickness or disease.
5. Prevent Heart Diseases
Cranberries are very good for the heart in several different ways. They help to lower the bad cholesterol levels which can clog the arterial walls. They also help to prevent plaque from forming on the arterial walls, which can lead to atherosclerosis.
