Cranberry Juice Helps Reduce High Cholesterol Levels

Drinking cranberry juice daily may help to increase levels of HDL, (good cholesterol) and reduce levels of LDL, (bad cholesterol). The knock on effect is less of the bad cholesterol clogging the walls of your arteries which puts less strain on the heart.

I keep Ocean Spray Craisins Dried Cranberries in the frigerator.  A 48 oz. bag cost less than $10.  When I have a food craving, I go grab a hand full for a snack. Cranberries contain powerful antioxidants flavonoids that can help fight protect artery walls from plaque.
