(NaturalNews) It's commonly known that cranberry juice is beneficial for clearing and eliminating infections of urinary tracts. But several studies have recently discovered another benefit for cranberry juice - heart health.

Hardened and obstructed arteries lead to blood vessels collapsing or rupturing, initiating heart attacks. Cranberry juice helps arteries become more flexible as well as remaining sufficiently dilated to not obstruct blood flow.

It appears that what helps clear the urinary tract also functions to clear arteries and prevent accumulation of debris leading to atheroscierosis or arteriosclerotic vascular disease (ASVD).

Phytonutrients in cranberries, known as proanthocyanidins (PACs), are the channel clearing agents. PACs do not kill bacteria or eliminate cholesterol. They simply don't allow bacteria or plaque debris to collect in urinary tracts or arterial walls. Anthocyanins appear in fruits and vegetables colored red or purple.

Other examples are blueberries and Jamaica (huh-my-ka) or hibiscus tea, which Dr. Andrew Weil has noted reduces blood pressure (http://www.naturalnews.com/026285_health_cayenne_tea.html).

Cranberry researchers still used the cholesterol myth

Though strict testing showed improved vascular health and blood flow from drinking cranberry juice, the researchers constantly referred to high cholesterol as their marker. The test reviews are within sources linked below.

But more and more health authorities see cholesterol as a benevolent bystander involved in the mix of debris that forms arterial plaque.

Cholesterol is composed of lipids (fats) that are flexible. Some health experts consider a more unusual suspect is free roaming calcium in the blood that isn't getting into the bones, but instead is calcifying in the arteries.

According to heart surgeon Dr. Dwight Lundell, arterial inflammation is the cause of heart disease. It usually occurs from trans-fatty acids that are substituted for good fats in our diet. He maintains that cholesterol is not the culprit. It's actually protective and essential to cellular wall and brain composition.

There is the possibility that bacterial or viral inflammation in the arteries is another factor. Considering how cranberry juice removes, not kills, infectious pathogens in the urinary tract, this characteristic could apply to removing arterial inflammatory sources as well.

Cadaver studies of war veterans who died after age 50 of heart related diseases showed no correlation with high cholesterol and athersciorosis or ASVD.

Cholesterol is the myth that created the foundation for statin drugs, which have become dangerous enough for the FDA to finally issue side effect warnings after years of harmful side effects.

One of the warnings refers to mental confusion or memory problems, which Dr. David Brownstein says was long overdue. The brain is composed largely from cholesterol.

Cholesterol is also important for the heart muscle. Sudden heart attacks are frequent adverse effects from statin drugs also. This is probably because cholesterol is needed to help repair damaged arteries (http://www.naturalnews.com/025891_cholesterol_high_disease.html).

It's your choice

Decide whether you want to obey your doctor and take dangerous statin drugs to "play it safe," or whether you'd rather be safe and use an effective arterial plaque preventative, cranberry juice.

If this makes sense to you, let family members and good friends know about the cranberry solution to replace prescribed statins. Then it's their choice.

The studies were performed with two or more glasses daily; mostly commercial cranberry juices. One study used a double strength juice. Organic is best. Earlier testing had demonstrated that cranberry juice relaxed vascular tension.

Arterial plaque's other calcifying components, such as free blood calcium, bacterial presence, inflammation, and vascular tension grab and trap cholesterol. Thus the assumed cholesterol myth was established.

Cholesterol is a benevolent bystander trapped in an inflammation/plaque trap, not the causal culprit. Why gamble with cholesterol reducing drugs when you can simply drink cranberry juice?
