Blueberries

The blueberry is a fascinating fruit. It is an antioxidant powerhouse. They have an ability to help keep our cell disintegrating over time and throughout the ageing process. But even Cancer Research have said that as blueberries have such a high antioxidant in them, it can help reduce cell damage that can lead on to cancer.

As well as not only helping the ageing process on the inside but also on the outside as well. With its capabilities, it can also help reduce the risk of heart disease, cataracts and varicose veins. There’s a lot of punch for such a small berry.

Strawberries

Strawberries have a natural antioxidant in them called Phenols. Which goes a long way to help promote long term health and fight against some of the biggest diseases. Studies have also shown that strawberries can help protect your brain cells.

Not only do they have a high antioxidant level, but they also include a good source of fibre, Vitamin K, Vitamin C and omega-3 fatty acids.

Miracle Berry

The miracle berry is a fruit that is grown in native Western Africa. While you can eat them fresh, they have a short shelf life so often taken as a supplement in tablet form.

These berries can aid you on a weight loss journey. Not because they have that ability, but they can help you reduce your sugar intake. The secret behind this berry is that they can make sour tasting items taste sweet. Allowing you to get that taste element without the need of eating something sugary.

There are many fruits that have a sour taste that is incredibly good for you, but you can be put off by the taste. Studies have also shown that cancer patients taking miracle berry tablets notice their taste level improve. This is because a common side effect of chemotherapy is the loss of taste.

Goji Berries

This berry is secretly linked to happiness. Rich in amino acids and vitamins the deep red colour is attractive and tantalising. The good things inside such a small berry can lead to longevity and increased physical strength.

Again something like this can be eaten fresh, or you may find them in a tablet form. There are even studies to suggest that increasing your intake of goji berries daily can help you respond better to treatment. Especially for things like Cancer.

It’s amazing that some fruits like berries that we can take for granted can have such a positive impact on our lives.
