General Health Benefits of Berries

Anti-Cancer Properties
The antioxidants in berries can protect against cancer in a number of ways: they prevent inflammation, inhibit DNA damage, induce cancer cell death and prevent cancerous cells from spreading. Research indicates that berries can play a role in a few specific types of cancer including colon cancer, breast cancer, esophageal cancer, lung cancer and pancreatic cancer.


Brain Health
Eating berries is good for your brain. In a 25-year observational study of over 16,000 women, researchers found that a higher intake of  blueberries was linked to a lower risk of cognitive decline. Other evidence has shown that berries can help prevent brain aging, enhance brain signalling and neuroplasticity, improve our memory, and protect against neuro-degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.


Anti-Inflammatory Actions
Chronic inflammation is a risk factor for a number of painful and debilitating diseases such as obesity, heart disease, autoimmune diseases, arthritis, diabetes and more. Research about the anthocyanins in berries shows that they can help modulate inflammatory pathways in the body, leading to reduced inflammation. 


Cardiovascular Health
Evidence indicates that the antioxidants in berries can improve cardiovascular health by reducing total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, blood pressure and triglycerides, as well as lower your risk of metabolic syndrome, making berries a great choice for your heart.


Vision and Eye Health
Key nutrients in berries such as Vitamin C help to lower the risk of age-related eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration, while the anthocyanins boost retinal health, and help us maintain good vision.

Berries are small, soft, round fruit of various colours — mainly blue, red or purple.

They are sweet or sour in taste and often used in preservatives, jams and desserts.

Berries have a good nutritional profile. They are typically high in fiber, vitamin C and antioxidant polyphenols. As a result, incorporating berries into your diet may help prevent and reduce symptoms of many chronic diseases.

Cranberries

Cranberry is a type of evergreen shrub that grows in wet areas, such as bogs or wetlands. Cranberry is native to northeastern and central parts of the United States. The shrub has small, dark green leaves, pink flowers, and dark red fruit that are egg-shaped. Cranberry is most commonly used for the prevention and treatment of urinary tract infections (UTIs). Cranberry is also used for kidney stones, neurogenic bladder (a bladder disease), to deodorize urine in people with difficulty controlling urination, to prevent urine catheters from becoming blocked, and to heal skin around surgical openings in the stomach that are used to eliminate urine. Some people use cranberry to increase urine flow, kill germs, and reduce fever.

Elderberry

Elderberry refers to several varieties of the Sambucus tree, which has clusters of white flowers and black or blue-black berries. The most common variety is Sambucus nigra, also known as European elderberry or black elderberry.

Elderberries are a low-calorie food packed with vitamin C, dietary fibre and antioxidants in the form phenolic acids, flavonols and anthocyanins. Elderberry extract has been found to reduce the length and severity of symptoms caused by the influenza virus. The antioxidants in elderberries contribute to most of their benefits. They boost immunity, protect the heart, and prevent cancer. The berries also improve skin and hair health. The fibre in these berries improves digestion and prevents other digestive ailments. It also reduces cholesterol, uric acid and blood sugar levels and inhibits the growth of bacteria like Helicobacter pylori and improves symptoms of sinusitis and bronchitis. 

Wolfberries.

Wolfberries are a good source of vitamins and minerals, including: vitamin C, fiber, iron, vitamin A, zinc, and antioxidants. These berries contain all 8 essential amino acids. The carbohydrates in Wolfberries are also complex carbs. This means your blood sugar will raise slowly, reducing your risk of a sugar crash afterwards.

Boosted immune system and flu protection: A boosted immune system and flu protection can go hand-in-hand. The vitamins in Wolfberries may be able to increase and support both.

Potential weight loss aid: Wolfberries pack healthy food energy into small servings. Their rich, sweet taste, along with their high fiber content, can help you stay on track with eating healthy.

Antioxidants for eyes and skin: Studies have cited the high level of antioxidants in Wolfberries, especially zeaxanthin. It’s the zeaxanthin that gives Wolfberrie their bright colour.

Increased testosterone: Wolfberries have a long history tied to sexual fertility.

Black Cherry

Cherries are a good source of vitamin C, potassium, fibre, and other nutrients that your body needs to function optimally.

Black cherries are packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds.

This high antioxidant content may help combat oxidative stress, a condition that is linked to multiple chronic diseases and premature aging.

In fact, one review found that eating cherries effectively reduced inflammation in 11 out of 16 studies and markers of oxidative stress in 8 out of 10 studies.

Cherries are especially high in polyphenols, a large group of plant chemicals that help fight cellular damage, reduce inflammation, and promote overall health.

In fact, polyphenol-rich diets may protect against many chronic conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, mental decline, and certain cancers.

These stone fruits also contain carotenoid pigments like beta-carotene and vitamin C, both of which have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties as well. Cherries are packed with potassium and polyphenol antioxidants, which have powerful heart-protective properties.

Due to their potent anti-inflammatory effects, cherries may reduce symptoms of arthritis and gout.

Many studies show that cherries help inhibit oxidative stress and decrease inflammation by suppressing inflammatory proteins, which can help reduce symptoms related to arthritis.

Plus, they can decrease uric acid levels in your body, making them especially beneficial for those with gout.

Cherries contain anti-inflammatory compounds and melatonin, which may help improve sleep quality in some people.

Key Phytonutrients in Berries
Berries are fantastic sources of:
Antioxidants
Berries contain an enormous range of antioxidants that help prevent free radical damage and reduce inflammation. Some of the notable antioxidants found in berries include a class of compounds called anthocyanins, which are responsible for the deep, vibrant berry colours.
Vitamin C
Also an antioxidant, Vitamin C helps us boost immunity, produce collagen, reduce our allergic response, and supports the adrenal and thyroid glands.
Manganese
This mineral helps with blood sugar control, helps our bones and joints develop and grow, and is a cofactor in an enzyme called superoxide dismutase (SOD), one of the major antioxidant enzymes in our bodies.
Copper
This mineral plays a role in energy production, helps Vitamin C produce collagen and bone, and is a also cofactor in the production of superoxide dismutase (SOD).
Fibre
Fibre is essential to blood sugar balance, maintaining a healthy weight, lowering cholesterol levels and supporting digestive health (regular bowel movements, supporting healthy gut bacteria, etc.).
