The road to better health is a bumpy one. The lifestyle and dietary modifications that must be endured can be difficult until benefits kick in and revitalized cells begin to gather a healthy momentum of their own. It's not often that the treatment is as enjoyable--and the benefits as immediate--as when cranberries are used as a therapeutic agent.
After a long time waiting in the wings, the cranberry is now receiving its due recognition as a powerful healing force. Low in calories but high in vitamins, minerals and other phytonutrients, fresh cranberries provide a powerful nutritional punch. The healthful benefits of holiday cuisine's darling berry even endure when frozen or dried, as described in this newest alive Natural Health Guide.
Authors Phyllis and Bruce Dales' new title is a result of many years of both practical and scientific research and offers readers a wealth of information on this tasty, cheery little berry. This Guide is a quick and easy read that combines real-life success stories with well-researched test results.
More and more, cranberry products are successfully used as a preventive treatment to improve not only bladder and kidney function but also candidiasis, diabetes, eye disorders and more. We learn why cranberry is so effective in treating urinary tract infections. The cranberry's greatest therapeutic value lies in its high organic acid content. Benzoic acid gives the berry anti-fungal and preservative properties, while malic, quinic and citric acids also contribute greatly.
In its many forms (liquid concentrate, capsules and freeze-dried), cranberry is a well-tolerated, non-toxic dietary supplement. The authors carefully explain differences between these therapeutic forms and include a discussion on preparing cranberries at home for maximum benefit.
Chef Fred Edrissi's vibrant recipe section will have readers easily incorporating cranberries, whether cooked, fresh or sun-dried, into every meal. You'll enjoy bursts of berry goodness in hot and chilled soups, salad (with pear and Gorgonzola!), risotto, drinks, desserts and even with spaghetti.
From the first therapeutic testament to the last Cranberry Cake crumb, this Natural Health Guide is thoroughly enjoyable to read and put into practice. Cranberry: The Cure for Common and Chronic Conditions should top your book list for good health.
