When you think of cranberries, it's likely two things come to mind: Thanksgiving and urinary tract infections (UTIs).
Grown in bogs throughout Asia, Europe and North America, cranberries contain unique compounds (including d-mannose and tannins) that prevent bacteria from sticking to bladder walls and creating a painful (and potentially dangerous) infection.
In addition to these unique properties, cranberries also contain cancer-fighting ellagic acid and anthocyanins.
HEALING TIP: When choosing cranberries, be sure to select unsweetened cranberry juice and make your traditional cranberry sauce at the holidays using no calorie, zero glycemic erythritol.
