Benefits of Red Fruits: Meet the mighty cranberry!

 

Not only are they delicious, but red fruits are packed with health benefits. Hands down, one of the most popular red fruits is the small but mighty cranberry. Packed with antioxidant polyphenols, research suggests cranberries are beneficial to urinary tract health, oral health (they actually may prevent bacteria from binding to your teeth!), reducing heart disease and even potentially slowing cancer progression1. They also contain fiber and essential vitamins – including vitamins B and C2.

Thanks to their versatility, cranberries are one of the easiest fruits to incorporate into your daily diet. Use as a topping for your morning oatmeal or cereal, sprinkle on your lunchtime salad, add as a tart addition to a cookie recipe or simply eat straight out of the bag! Want to supercharge the benefits of cranberries? The probiotics found in Mariani Probiotic Cranberries survive 10x more effectively than yogurt cultures3 and support both immune and gut health. Talk about a superfruit!

Here at Mariani, we love cranberries for their sweet & tart taste and incredible benefits, but they are also near and dear to our hearts because of the wonderful relationships we have with our cranberry farmers. They love what they do and are passionate about growing the best cranberries. So the next time you enjoy a (mighty!) Mariani Cranberry, you can rest assured that it was grown with love!
