Cranberry improves impaired vision in bright light
Cranberry fruits contain vitamins A and C, calcium, potassium and bioflavonoids, which have a strong antioxidant effect. This increases the general resistance of the organism and reduces the risk of various forms of cancer (breast and colon cancer are mentioned most often).
Research says that 3 glasses of cranberry juice a day increases the level of antioxidants in plasma by over 120%
Thus, the level of good cholesterol (HDL) is raised, so the risk of heart and blood vessel diseases is reduced by more than a significant 40%.
Cranberry improves vision in hemeralopia (impaired vision in bright light). It helps to rest the eyes after hard work. Research shows that ingredients from cranberry fruits destroy Helicobacter pylori (the bacterium that is the most common cause of stomach ulcers). Diabetics can also use cranberry without problems because it contains a negligible amount of sugar.
Cranberry has proven particularly good for urinary tract infections (primarily infections caused by Escherichia coli bacteria), this infection is a serious health problem (which makes life more difficult for a large number of people every day). It occurs much more often to women than to men. It is characteristic of older people, but it is not uncommon for smaller children to have it as well. Such a condition is quickly treated with antibiotics, but in some 25% of cases, the infection persistently recurs and antibiotic therapy lasts endlessly. This should not be allowed especially to children and pregnant women. It is therefore recommended to regularly use cranberry fruits to prevent infections from recurring.
This is a centuries-old recipe that today receives confirmation from expert circles.
Namely, the way cranberry works has been scientifically explained. Cranberry contains all the ingredients that do not allow bacteria to “hook” on the cells lining the urinary tract and bladder. This bacterium normally exists in the intestines. It manages to get into the urinary tract and thus clings to the cells of the bladder using its cilia. Thus, it continues to spread the infection. Cranberry disables these “hooks”, so the bacteria are expelled from the body in the most natural way (urinating). Preparations of this multi-useful fruit can be found in markets, health food stores, herbal pharmacies and pharmacies.
