Recent studies confirm that cranberries and cranberry products are beneficial to health. Cranberries are considered a healthy fruit. They contain no cholesterol and virtually no fat and are low in sodium. Cranberries also deliver dietary fiber and are a good source of vitamin C. Other naturally occurring compounds in cranberries are also beneficial to health. Flavonoids and phytonutrients in cranberries are antioxidants and are consumed for their health benefits for the whole of your body including your mouth and GI tract. The majority of studies have focused on the cranberry's role in urinary tract health, but the benefits extend beyond the urinary tract. The berry's activities in the body are extensive and eating this fruit is just plain good for you in a variety of ways.
