MegaFood Cranberry Extract
Long before superfoods like the goji berry and mulberry became popular, the originally North American cranberry was known for its superpowers. While not ubiquitous in Europe, in North America the berry still grows in abundance. The cranberry is packed with important vitamins and minerals. Take a handful of berries (100 grams) and you already have the daily recommended amount of vitamin C. Besides vitamin C, cranberries also contain substantial amounts of vitamins B5, B6, E and K, as well as the minerals manganese, copper and iron.
- Cranberries have widely dispersed health benefits ranging from the bladder to blood vessels, immune system, digestive tract and the immune system
- The cranberries are processed extremely carefully and slowly, so that as many nutrients as possible are preserved
- Each capsule contains at least 500 milligrams of cranberry extract
- These healthy berries contain proanthocyanidins, among other compounds
Source of vitamins
One of the best known health effects of the cranberry is the protective effect against cystitis. Extensive scientific research into the effect of cranberry on the bladder has shown that cranberries are full of what are called proanthocyanidins. This ensures that the Escherichia Coli (E-coli) bacteria, which causes cystitis, cannot adhere to the inner bladder wall. Though cranberry does not cure cystitis, a daily serving of fresh cranberries, cranberry juice or cranberry tablets appears to help prevent it. Cranberry has still other advantages. The berry’s antioxidants have a positive effect on the heart and blood vessels, the immune system and associated defense mechanisms. For example, it offers protection against free radicals in the body.
Used as a medicine for centuries
As mentioned, the cranberry originally hails from North America, where the medicinal power of the berry was widely known to Native Americans. The berry was widely used, including for the treatment of arrow wounds and as a remedy for cystitis. On long sea voyages, the berry was used to combat scurvy. Several tales tell of a ship being wrecked in 1840 near the Dutch coast, resulting in a barrel of cranberries washing up on the beach of the Dutch Isle of Terschelling. From that moment the cranberries grew on the island. From the 20th century the cranberry was also commercially grown in the Netherlands.
What are Re-Natured® Foodstate Nutrients™?
MegaFood uses a unique and patented process to manufacture its products, resulting in Re-Natured® Foodstate Nutrients™. Rather than simply mixing nutrients together, this technique ensures that nutrients and plants are linked through a natural growth process and undergo biotransformation. Because nutrients are not isolated, but have the nutritional structure of food, the body can better recognize and absorb the substances.
