Large cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon) is a plant highly appreciated for its excellent edible fruit. They are not only tasty and nutritious, but they also constitute a valuable healing raw material. They are commonly used in the prevention and therapy of urological diseases. Studies showed that bioactive compounds contained in cranberry fruits (mainly proanthocyanidins) have a strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effect. In addition, they help to restore the normal urine pH and they intensify diuresis.
Cranberry preparations are very helpful in case of inflammation of the bladder as well as recurrent infections and infections in the urinary tract. In addition, they may reduce the risk of developing kidney stones. Supplements in this category are also prophylactically recommended for people who regularly use public swimming pools, saunas, jacuzzi, toilets and thus expose themselves to frequent contact with bacteria.
In order to take the full advantage of the medicinal properties of cranberry, it is worth reaching for supplements that contain a concentrate of whole fruits. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the extensive offer of our store. It is worth remembering that neither the dried cranberry nor the cranberry juices will ensure such effective action as the preparations recommended. Not only do they not provide the right amount of bioactive compounds, but they also contain very large amounts of sugar, which is added to correct the sharp taste of cranberry.
