Happy Thanksgiving!

Welcome to Thanksgiving! The holiday in which we can all take time to realize what we are thankful for. This, of course, may be interrupted by turkey, stuffing, and of course cranberries. You may be tempted to go for the extra helping of turkey and stuffing; however, take time to realize the many positive benefits of cranberries.

· Lab studies suggests that the chemicals in cranberries work together to help suppress the growth of some various human cancer cells
· These chemicals may also reduce the risk of hardening of your artieries. (Athrosclerosis).
· Cranberries are loaded with helpful antioxidants.
· Cranberries also contain two compounds that seem to keep certain bacteria from attacking the urinary tract wall. Some studies suggest that women who drink cranberry juice regularly may have fewer symptoms of UTI’s over a period of time.

We at Empire Health and Wellness would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. We are very thankful that we are able to be a part of a wonderful and caring community.
