Cranberry is a perennial evergreen shrub that grows acidic and damp soils. It mainly occurs on high and transition peat and in marshes. In Poland naturally occurs mud cranberries. Today, mainly grown cranberries are grown mainly from North America.

Cranberry blooms in June and July. Its flowers are pink - white in color, and the shape resembles the bow of a crane. The fruit of large-fruited cranberries are dark red berries that reach full maturity about a hundred days after flowering. Compared with mud cranberry, however, it has similar taste, composition and processing value. The plant is grown primarily in Canada, the United States, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

What do contain cranberry fruits?

Cranberries have long preserved their properties because they contain a natural preservative called benzoic acid. Prevents the growth of bacteria and yeast. Benzoic acid is a simple carboxylic acid used not only as a preservative but also as an aroma. This acid also contains mushrooms, cinnamon and some milk fruits. Contains as much as 87% water, plenty of fiber, and also vitamins like C, E, K1 and vitamins B6 and pantothenic acid. Cranberries are a rich source of minerals, including potassium, manganese, copper and iodine. Contains large amounts of antioxidants and flavonoids. Antioxidants are a group of chemicals that have the ability to stop or delay oxidation of a substance. Antioxidants are very common in dietary supplements. Nonetheless, the antioxidants contained in natural foods are better assimilated and therefore more effective. They are considered one of the best preventive measures against certain cancers (such as colon or lung) and coronary heart disease. Flavonoids also belong to the group of antioxidants, but their effect on the body is much broader. They have the form of natural dyes found in plants. They help prevent bleeding, varicose veins and epididymias, lower cholesterol levels, and blood pressure. They have a diuretic effect and purify the urinary tract. They are antifungal, antiviral and antiallergic. They cover many compounds with different actions. Cranberry is also a rich source of fiber, so it can help those suffering from constipation.

Useful for treatment

Cranberries have unique therapeutic properties and help prevent many diseases. Cranberry contains proanthocyanins, bioflavonoids and tannins, which limit the adherence of microorganisms to the urinary tract. As a result, they are excreted in the urine and do not come to the urinary tract infection or bladder. What's more, cranberries even destroy microorganisms resistant to antibiotics present in the urinary tract during infection (Escherichia coli). Cranberry products alkalize the urine, causing dissolution of the stones containing the sores, so they are helpful in interrupting the kidney colic. Cranberry contains in it a large amount of citrates, thanks to which min. No kidney stones are formed. The fruit acts diuretic, which makes it faster the process of detoxification of the body. Cleansing the body of toxins is extremely important as we deliver them today far more than 50 years ago. Toxins are already found everywhere - in water, air or food. By drinking a lot of water and chewing cranberries, we can not detox ourselves, which will have a positive effect not only on our health, but also on our appearance and wellbeing. Flavonoids also limit the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, thereby decreasing the risk of atherosclerosis and inhibiting the development of Helicobacter pylori that causes peptic ulcer. The NDM contained in the cranberry limits the development of plaque and periodontitis. Cranberry has not only taste qualities, but also helps to enjoy good health for a long time. Fresh cranberries have a very sour taste, but they are excellent in the form of processed foods. Made from them, among others, jam, juices and tinctures. Cranberries can also be bought in frozen form. Frozen fruits do not lose much of their nutritional value during the freezing process. So you can eat it all year round! A good alternative is the use of dried fruit (no additives), which we write in the rest of the article.
