Cranberries are a Superfood?

Cranberry-Bowl-FreeDigitalPhotosCranberries are a superfood?  The answer is yes and while it surprises some, this is the perfect time of year to cash in on their health and nutrition benefits!

Cranberries are an antioxidant food that helps to protect against heart disease, cancer, hypertension (or high blood pressure) and the effects of aging.  They are rich in vitamin E, beta-carotene, selenium, lutein, anthocyanins, lycopene, flavonoids and other nutrients.  Scientists continue to discover more compounds in antioxidants every day.

Here are ten (10) antioxidant foods that are rich in vitamins, hence a “super” food:

  • small dried red beans,
  • red kidney beans,
  • pinto beans,
  • wild blueberries,
  • cultivated blueberries,
  • blackberries,
  • raspberries,
  • prunes, and
  • cooked artichokes.

During the holiday season cranberries can be found fresh or frozen in great abundance.  To learn more how to use these as part of your healthy diet, download our cookbook, Cranberries: Delicious, Mouth-Watering Recipes for Every Day while supplies last.
