Berries are rich in phytochemicals that are responsible for its red, purple and blue colors. These phytochemicals have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and cell regulatory effects that may help prevent heart disease and some types of cancers. Anthocyanin, a natural antioxidant found in berries has demonstrated the ability to fight against inflammatory responses and some degenerative diseases. They also help improve cognitive brain function and ocular health. Some berries contain antibacterial properties – Raspberries and blackcurrants inhibit twelve different strains of bacteria along with C. Albicans, a fungus that lives in our intestinal tract, which when out of balance leads to many seemingly unrelated illnesses.
