A good workout starts even before you enter the gym. To perform well your body needs energy. During workouts you sweat and you lose nutrients that could help your muscles recover. For each B!TE ME bar we have carefully selected natural ingredients pumped up with nutrients that you need. Cranberries are one of those ingredients that you can find in Mediterraneo B!TE ME bar.
This is why we have created a special mix of natural raw ingredients that bring the best from nature and are simply delicious.
Cranberries are red sour berries that grow in cooler areas of North America (larger berries) and Northern Europe (smaller berries). They are rarely eaten fresh because they have a very sharp and sour taste. That’s why we consume them dried, as juice, powder or its extract is added to the food supplements.
Many people will say that cranberries are a superfood as they are rich in vitamins and bioactive plant compounds such as quercetin, myricetin, peonidin, ursolic acid and A-type proanthocyanidins.
Research shows that nutrients found in cranberries are linked to a lower risk of urinary tract infection. Even Native Americans used it as a treatment for bladder and kidney diseases.
Fresh cranberries are almost 90% water and the rest is mostly carbs and fiber. They are low in calories – 100 g of raw, unsweetened cranberries have only 46 calories. Cranberries are rich in vitamins such as vitamin C (about 14mg – 16% DV), vitamin E and K1 and let’s not forget minerals such as manganese that is essential for growth and metabolism (12% DV).
