Skin and health benefits of drinking cranberry juice

1. Fighting age-related damage

Cranberries are filled with vitamin C and salicylic acid. The vitamin C present in cranberries is known for helping individuals achieve glowing skin and visibly eliminate blemishes. These two components work together to also help reduce hyper-pigmentation, eliminate acne scars, and lighten blemishes.

2. Improving heart health

Women with metabolic syndrome found that cranberry juice increased the antioxidants in the blood plasma. People who drank cranberry juice also had lower low-density lipoprotein (LDL). LDL is known as the “bad” type of cholesterol.

3. Treating or preventing urinary tract infection.

A substance in cranberries called proanthocyanidins, might help prevent UTI-causing bacteria from sticking to the walls of the bladder and other urinary tract-linings.

4. Supporting post-menopausal health

Menopause is associated with unpleasant symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and an increased risk of UTIs. Cranberry juice may help alleviate some of these symptoms.
