You may have heard that drinking cranberry juice can help with a urinary tract infection (UTI), but that’s not the only benefit.
Cranberries are water-harvested fruits. They are packed with nutrients to help your body ward off infections and boost overall health. In fact, throughout history, they’ve been used to treat urinary issues, upset stomachs, and liver problems.
Cranberries grow in marshes. When the berries are ripe and ready to pick, they float in the water. Being on the water’s surface exposes them to more sunlight. This may increase their nutritional value.
Like most fruits, you get the highest level of nutrition when you eat cranberries whole. But the juice is still chock-full of benefits.
