Cranberry Capsules - Nutri Life

Botanical Description:

  • The cranberries are a group of evergreen dwarf shrubs.
  • Cranberries are tart, round, deep red berries, grown primarily in wet, sandy coastal lands, or bogs, in the northeastern United States.
  • They are available fresh autumn through early winter and frozen year-round. Cranberries are low, creeping shrubs to 10 cm tall (often less), with slender, wiry stems, not thickly woody, and small evergreen leaves.
  • The flowers are dark pink, with very distinct reflexed petals, leaving the style and stamens fully exposed and pointing forward.
  • The fruit is a berry that is larger than the leaves of the plant. It is initially white, but turns a deep red when fully ripe.
  • The name cranberry probably derives from their being a favorite food of cranes, though some sources claim the name comes from "'craneberry' because before the flower expands, its stem, calyx, and petals resembled the neck, head, and bill of a crane".

  • Caution is suggested for patients with diabetes or glucose intolerance; commercially prepared cranberry juices can contain large quantities of sugar; patients who have a risk of kidney stones should also use with care due to cranberry's high level of oxalate.
  • Aspirin allergy: Cranberries contain significant amounts of salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is similar to aspirin. Avoid drinking large quantities of cranberry juice if you are allergic to aspirin.
  • Diabetes: Some cranberry juice products are sweetened with extra sugar. If you have diabetes, stick with cranberry products that are sweetened with artificial sweeteners.
