Load Up on Cranberries

by

Be sure to include cranberries on your holiday table. Per serving, they rank second-highest of all fruits in disease-fighting, anti-aging antioxidants. (Blueberries are No. 1.)

Chemicals in cranberries also ward off urinary tract infections by keeping bacteria from sticking to bladder cells. A recent University of Washington study showed that drinking 8 ounces of cranberry juice cocktail appeared twice as protective as 4 ounces. Researcher Kalpana Gupta, M.D., says a serving of dried cranberries or cranberry sauce may be equally effective. Note: Cranberries haven’t been shown to cure infections, Gupta says; they’re preventive only.
