This is Day Three of 12 consecutive posts with Jay demonstrating how to make each juice recipe. We will also include nutrition and research information to compliment Jay’s choice of fruit and/or vegetable drinks.  Happy Holidays from all of us at JayKordich.com

Day Three – Cranberry Apple Juice

Two decades of science has shown how cranberry juice can heal urinary tract infections and help to cleanse the bladder, kidneys and prostate. More studies are showing anti-inflammatory effects and another that says the juice itself is better than extracts for fighting infections.

Now research says drinking a lower calorie version of cranberry juice could lower blood pressure. The new findings were presented at the American Heart Association’s High Blood Pressure Research 2012 Scientific Sessions. Click on the links above for more details on all of the research.

Jay Kordich tells us “Take charge of what goes into your lower calorie cranberry juice by making it yourself with your own juice machine in your own kitchen. With my recipe, if you want less sugar in your juice, simply use less apples. Add some water, maybe some Stevia or raw honey and pour over ice for a great tasting and healthy drink.”

With this recipe you control how tart the juice is by how much of each ingredient you use. Unlike most commercial cranberry juice, no refined sugar and nothing artificial is added.

Cranberry Juice Lowers Blood Pressure

Over the past two decades there have been numerous studies that looked at cranberries and their juice. Most of the research revolves around how cranberry juice can heal urinary tract infections and help to cleanse the bladder, kidneys and prostate. Reports are also showing anti-inflammatory effects and a study that says the juice itself is better than extracts for fighting infections.

There is an impressive amount of positive information about the restorative properties of cranberry juice. Now it appears the scientists have even more investigating they want to do.

Low Calorie Version of Cranberry Juice Lowers Blood Pressure

New research is pointing toward a benefit as yet not studied in cranberry juice. It has now been shown that drinking a lower calorie version of cranberry juice could lower blood pressure. The new findings were presented at the American Heart Association’s High Blood Pressure Research 2012 Scientific Sessions.

Participants were given either low calorie cranberry juice or a placebo drink every day for eight weeks. Blood pressure measurements were taken at the start, mid point and end of the study. At the conclusion readings showed a significant lowering of blood pressure from 121/73 to 118/70 for those drinking the juice. There was no change in those drinking the placebo.

Cranberry juice is rich in antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties. Both of these attributes have been associated with lower blood pressure in other studies. This new research is another great reason to purchase fresh cranberries for juicing during the fall season.

Jay Kordich tells us “Take charge of what goes into your lower calorie cranberry juice by making it yourself with your own juice machine in your own kitchen. With my recipe, if you want less sugar in your juice, simply use one less apple. Add a 1/2 a cup of water to the glass or ice and no other sweetener or maybe some Stevia like Linda and I have been using.”

With this great tasting recipe you control how tart the juice is by how much apple or water you use. Unlike most commercial cranberry juice, no refined sugar is added.
