12 Superfruits for the Perfect Morning Smoothie

3. Cranberries

The cranberry is a unique fruit. Not only does it have a tart taste that sets it apart, but it can also help in the prevention of urinary tract infections (UTI). A number of recent studies have shown that regularly consuming cranberries can lower the risk of developing a UTI by preventing bacteria from clinging to the cells lining the bladder.

Beyond that, cranberries are packed with antioxidant properties known to prevent various diseases, including heart disease. Cranberries are also known to help lower low-density lipoprotein levels, ensuring our “bad” cholesterol stays at a manageable level.
