The cranberry is an intense red berry that grows exclusively in Massachusetts, New Jersey, Oregon, Washington, Wisconsin and in some areas of Canada and Chile. It is grown in sandy soils rich in water. Only a small percentage of the crop is consumed as fresh fruit; all the rest is consumed in the form of juice for drinks and dried fruit for various processes. Cranberry contributes to the functionality of the urinary tract, preventing the adhesion of bacteria to the urinary mucous membranes.
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin, i.e. it dissolves in water, with antioxidant properties: it helps keep cells healthy by protecting them from the effects of free radicals produced during normal cellular activity. Since vitamin C is not produced by the body and cannot be stored, the right daily dose must be taken through a healthy and balanced diet. Vitamin C has a documented antioxidant activity by virtue of which it reduces lipid peroxidation, oxidative damage to DNA and that to proteins. It is useful in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases and has a chelating activity against heavy metals, becoming useful in detoxifying therapies. It can positively influence iron absorption. Vitamin C can play a protective action on eyesight and prevent cataracts. Vitamin C also contributes to the synthesis of collagen and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and supports the normal functioning of the nervous system and psyche.
Lactoferrin (or lactoferrin) is a protein belonging to the category of transferrins, protein molecules with the ability to bind and transport iron. Lactoferrin inhibits the aggregative capacity of bacteria, preventing their proliferation. Lactoferrin also has bactericidal activity by lysis of the bacterial cell membrane.
