Healthy Berries

Did You Know About Healthy Berries?

Berries are also loaded with antioxidants, which means that they protect our bodies against free radicals that can damage our cells and organs. Berries also protect our bodies against inflammation. A study conducted at Tufts University in Boston discovered that consuming half to one full cup of mixed berries a day improved the cognition and motor performance of animals. As we get older we become more vulnerable to the dangers of free radicals and inflammation. By eating berries you can help prevent those effects!

Did you know that strawberries contain more Vitamin C per one cup serving than one orange? Strawberries also contain high levels of folic acid.

 

Blueberries have 20 different types of anthocyanin (an antioxidant that gives blueberries their beautiful colouring).

 

Cranberries can help fight urinary tract infections and are a natural probiotic.

 

To get the full benefits from berries you should eat 2 to 3 types of fresh, frozen or dehydrated berries per day.
