“Tear the stuff up.
The cranberry extract is good for the brain, for the immune system, for everything else,” Dr. Josephine Kohn, chief of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University, said on her blog.
“It’s good for your heart.”
Dr. Kohn is not the only expert to say that cranberry is a powerful antioxidant and can help with chronic pain.
In a recent review article in The Lancet Neurology, Dr. Jeffrey E. Schoenfeld, a cardiologist at the Mayo Clinic, found that cranberries are “the gold standard” for treatment of various forms of cancer, including advanced breast cancer, advanced prostate cancer and chronic myeloid leukemia.
But that does not mean that they are safe, as the Journal of Nutrition recently reported.
A 2013 study found that women who consume more than 100 grams of cranberry a day have a four times higher risk of breast cancer.
The American Cancer Society has also come out in support of cranberries, saying that they may help prevent or slow the progression of breast and ovarian cancer.
And a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that consuming cranberry juice during pregnancy and breastfeeding can lower a child’s risk of developing type 2 diabetes, which is linked to high blood sugar and insulin levels.
Some researchers say that the benefits of cranodidgets outweigh the risks, though the benefits aren’t as strong as that of cranfruiting.
Dr. John Ehrlich, an orthopedic surgeon at the University of Southern California, told Fox News that cranodidia is a “great source of antioxidants” and that they can be used in the treatment of chronic pain and arthritis.
“Cranberries are actually very good at improving your circulation,” Dr Ehrich said.
“If you take a drink every day, you can actually lower your risk of dying of cardiovascular disease, and you can reduce the risk of diabetes.
If you take cranberry powder, it has a very low glycemic index.
So it’s a really good source of anti-inflammatory agents that help fight inflammation.”
But the study also found that “an increased consumption of cranapple juice was associated with a 2.5-fold higher risk for developing Type 2 diabetes and a 3-fold increased risk for cancer, which are all associated with increased risk of death from all causes.”
