As a young girl, I hated cranberries.

Shocker, right? The little red sweet-and-sour berries tasted as bad as they looked to me. However, sometime around my senior year in high school, about that time when the womanly woes left me bedridden with painful cramps, I discovered the magical healing power of nature’s joy juice. Back in the day, Eastern Native Americans called them sassamanesh. In this article, we’re going to talk about several fun ways you can use the cranberry to compliment and support a healthy lifestyle.

Cranberries contain antioxidants and come with plenty of vitamins C, E, K, copper, and manganese (all necessary for good bone health and great for anti-aging remedies). This magical little red berry is also known for its anti-inflammatory healing properties. This is why grandma used to tell me to drink a cup or two just before my period started. The cranberry also has vitamin C and make a good source of fiber, a necessary nutrient for digestive health.

Since they come filled with vitamin C, a nutrient that has been proven to contain anti-aging properties, cranberry juice has become known as the elixir of the fountain of youth among Hollywood starlets and stars alike. The great thing about cranberries is you can merge them with your diet in several ways. Use the cranberry to make a healthy morning smoothie or take cranberry supplements to ward off yeast infections. Yes! That’s right. These little guys even help fight one of the most troublesome ailment for women of all ages.
