Cranberry juice, often used for urinary tract infections, may also be good for your heart. A recent study found that the polyphenols in cranberry juice could reduce artery stiffness. The study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, compared two groups. The first group drank cranberry juice; the second drank a juice drink. Testing immediately before and after drinking, and again 12 hours later, showed a decrease in arterial stiffness with the cranberry juice, while stiffness increased after the juice drink.
