More About Cranberries From Our Newsletter
Cranberries are in the peak of their season and are our food of the week. Did you know that cranberries contain one of the highest concentrations of antioxidants of any fruit? Studies conducted at the University of Scranton, PA, found cranberries to contain the highest level of phenol antioxidants when compared to 19 other common fruits! (Some of the other fruits found to be rich in phenols, in descending order after cranberries, were apples, red grapes, strawberries, pineapples, bananas, peaches, lemons, oranges, pears and grapefruit). Antioxidants are premier disease-fighters and anti-aging agents. Cranberry phenols have been found to help protect against certain types of cancers, the brain cell damage that usually occurs in the early stages after a stroke, and urinary tract infections. They protect against the free radical activity that is thought to be responsible for oxidizing cholesterol, which makes it harmful to arteries and the heart; memory impairment; difficulty in mobility; cataracts and macular degeneration of the eyes. So, as the holiday season approaches, you can enjoy your cranberry sauce, not only because it tastes great, but because you know you will be getting an extra big dose of health-promoting antioxidants.
