Zero Carb Cranberry post- do cranberrys really make your arteries more elastic?

So this post has a lot of truth to it, and anyone who reads this blog know that I am all about content in cranberry products.  My question for Suzanne (and I will ask her) is what about 100% cranberry juice? It does exist out there, and while not easy to drink “straight”  it is nothing but cranberry. Hmmm

Walmart juice

Ok, so I’m checking out the Walmart light cocktail, and what do I see when I compare it my favorite Cranberry cocktail?  OS has upped the % of juice to a total of 50%. but added apple and grape juice to the blend for a total of 50%. the OS light product used to be 27%juice, all cranberry.  So if I want my cranberry, and I do, but I don’t want all the calories, what do I do?  I’ll be buying the Walmart brand.  This is the way I figure out the labels….since there are three juices and cranberry is the most, the amount of cranberry is somewhere between 16.5% and 49%.  Don’t know, cant tell.  Wish they would tell me.
