Cranberries have long been hailed a 'superfood' for their cancer-fighting properties but now they have been proven to benefit our gut health, say experts.
For the first time, certain friendly microbes have been found to grow when fed a carbohydrate in the fruit. Good intestinal bacteria not only improves digestion but also our brain health, mood, emotions, energy levels, and weight loss.
Whats more, our microflora has also increasingly been linked to many aspects of health, including aging, arthritis, depression, cancer and heart conditions. Now cranberries – in supplement form – may be a candidate to improve our gut health, says study author professor David Sela, nutritional microbiologist at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
