Study provides new evidence that cranberry juice may help fight CVD.
This is good news to know. 2-3 glasses per day lowered CVD risk by 40% and contains some of the highest levels of protective compounds among its fellow fruits. It is interesting to note that some of these compounds found in fruits are designed to protect the fruit from pests and insects. These fruits produce more levels when threatened by these pests. So, when pesticides are used, these fruits will have lowered levels of protective compounds. This may be one of the reasons why organic fruits and veggies are much higher in these compounds.
