The phytochemicals found in cranberries are anti-carcinogenic, anti-angiogenic, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral and antioxidant.
Naturally loaded with phytonutrients
Throughout history Native Americans used cranberries as a treatment for bladder and kidney disease and Early English settlers used them to treat poor appetite, stomach aches and scurvy.
There are over two dozen phytonutrients in cranberries (phytonutrients are natural compounds produced by plants which keep plants healthy, protecting them from insects and the sun). Cranberries are also rich in fibre and high in Vitamin C and E. Usually when pet parents think of cranberries it is related to urinary tract infections, but we always suggest seeing your medical practitioner for a diagnosis and treatment. There are studies which show cranberry phytonutrients can benefit by decreasing bacteria activity in inflammatory pathways.
