    Cranberries:

    Cranberries have more antioxidants than other common fruits and veggies. One serving has five times the amount in broccoli. Cranberries are a natural probiotic, enhancing good bacteria levels in the gut and protecting it from foodborne illnesses.

    Strawberry juice is recommended in treating liver disorders such as hepatitis, chronic hepatitis and cirrhosis. It is best if the juice is consumed on an empty stomach, 3 cups a day. The juice stimulates liver activity and encourages the renewal of hepatic cells and tissue.

    Diabetes, goutiness, high cholesterol levels and arteriosclerosis can be prevented and alleviated after a 12-day cure with wild strawberry. If a vegetarian diet is associated, the cures effect is remarkable.

    Both red and black grapes contain powerful antioxidants and resveratrol, which helps to prevent both the narrowing and hardening of the arteries. Ellagic acid, which has anti-cancer properties, is also contained in grapes. They do, however, have a very high sugar content.

    How much grapes should you eat?
    Grapes have many health benefits, but have a high sugar content and should therefore be eaten in moderation.
