It’s time to really “go red” for your heart. While North Americans are loading up on fish oil and CoQ10 products, it turns out that cranberries are the next go-to ingredient for cardio health. Cran Naturelle and Cran d’Or Cranberry Seed Oil both provide potent combinations of Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs), antioxidants and phospholipids.
In fact, they provide a 70 percent EFA profile, one of the highest on the market, including a uniquely balanced profile of omega 3,6 and 9 (tocopherols, tocotrienols, phosphatidylserine, beta-sitosterol). These are two of the few oils on the market with a perfectly balanced 1:1 ratio of omega 3 and omega 6. This balance is important reason why cranberry is good for maintaining optimal cardio health. Cranberry seed oil is also the most unsaturated oil on the market, next to flax seed oil.
Cranberry seed oil is a rich source of vitamin E tocotrienols, efficient antioxidants that are being studied for their benefits in improving cholesterol levels and reducing heart disease risk. Tocotrienols have also been shown to reduce the risk of stroke-related neurological damage. Fruit d’Or cranberry seed oils are made with a state-of-the-art cold-extraction process that preserves the integrity and activity of tocotrienols.
Similar to rosemary oil, cranberry oil can also be used in the dietary supplement market as a natural preservative. Its antioxidant properties can act as a carrier and may help absorb and extend the shelf life of other fatty oils such as CoQ10 and fish oil.
Fruit d’Or Cranberry Seed Oils have a perfectly balanced EFA profile and their stability makes them ideal for a wide range of consumer applications. Those looking for clean-label alternatives can rest assured that cranberry oil contains no enzymes, additives, carriers, solvents or oxygen. They are suitable for vegans/vegetarians and are GMO-free and gluten-free. And they are always produced in accordance with Good Manufacturing Practices.
