Do you know that 'Cranberry' protects your body from the harmful bacteria ?

A new research has found that cranberry extract has the potential to stop the spread of infections and paving the way to developing alternative approaches in controlling infections.

“Cranberry PACs interrupt the ability for bacteria to communicate with each other, spread and become virulent -- a process known as quorum sensing,” INRS-Institute Armand-Frappier’s Professor-investigator Eric Deziel said.

Cranberries are a source of antioxidants which help protect the body from harmful bacteria.

PACs can aid in controlling the virulence or spread of potentially dangerous bacterial infections around the world, the researchers said. “The cranberry extract successfully interferes with the chain of events associated with the spread and severity of chronic bacterial infections,” said Deziel from the research centre in Quebec, Canada.

In the study, fruit flies were feed cranberry extract, the researchers discovered that the fruit provided flies protection from bacterial infection and that the cranberry-fed flies lived longer..

In essence, the cranberry extract reduced the severity of the bacterial infection. “This means that cranberries could be part of the arsenal used to manage infections and potentially minimise the dependence on antibiotics for the global public,” said Professor Nathalie Tufenkji of McGill University in Canada.
