Cranberry Juice helps with urinary infections

The iconic holidays fruit, which goodness we can benefit more times of the year is a diuretic. Cranberry juice helps clean out our system and kidneys and it is one of the most popular home remedies for urinary infections. They are packed with more antioxidants than any other fruit, including oligomeric proanthocyanidins, anthocyanidins (they give them red color), cyanidin, peonidin, and quercetin.

Researches have shown that cranberry juice is preventing and helping with cancer, heart disease and digestive problems.

A healthy acidic urine has nearly no chance of becoming infected, and cranberry juice is acidic.

Unfortunately most cranberry juices go into mixture with cocktails, so that juice is no pure, it is loaded with chemicals and sugar and no benefits left, the only cranberry juice we can believe is pure, is the one that we make by ourselves. The best time to make cranberry juice is  when harvest is happening. If we have fresh cranberries the taste won’t be bitter like with the old ones.
