of us delve into the barren wasteland of healthy choices. You may not be
able to have your cake and eat it too, but you may be able to have your
cranberry juice as part of a healthy diet! Data suggests those adults
who drink cranberry juice as part of their daily routine, have a healthy
weight and normal body mass index as compared to non-consumers.
Fruit juices, including cranberry contain micronutrients and vitamins which can help support and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Cranberry juice is especially rich in flavonoids, which are known for their health-promoting benefits. Despite the ongoing controversy around sugar content in certain beverages and health, research indicates that cranberry juice consumption can be part of an overall health.
Another juicy tidbit is the fact that cranberry juice contains unique compounds that may have health benefits for your whole body, including the urinary tract, stomach and heart. With this early work as a warm up in regards to cranberry juice and a healthy weight, it's exciting to consider what other benefits the cranberry may be able to provide.
