HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS ABOUT BERRIES
Berries of all kinds contain antioxidants, including anthocyanins, quercitin, and vitamin C, which reduce inflammation and may prevent or manage arthritis, and slow memory loss. Berries also have high water, folate, and fiber content – so although they are sweet, they are diabetic friendly when eaten alone (not in a pie!)!
According to research published in the journal Neurology, those who eat a minimum of two servings of berries per week have a 25 percent less chance of developing Parkinson’s disease than those who do not. The same research showed that men with the highest intake of flavonoids — which are abundant in berries — reduced their risk by 40 percent.
