BERRIES – Antioxidant rich powerhouses
Berries top the charts in antioxidant power, being some of the highest antioxidant foods on the Planet. Antioxidants protect your body by neutralizing free radicals to counter aging, inflammation, and cancer. The rich red, blue, and purple color in the skin of berries contains antioxidant phytochemicals. These vibrant skin pigments are due to flavonoid antioxidant molecules called anthocyanins. Flavonoids like anthocyanins are also believed to reduce the risk of coronary disease. Berries are high in fiber but low in calories, plus they’re packed with vitamins and minerals.
To get the optimal health benefits of berries, eat 2 or 3 different types of fresh, frozen, or dried berries a day. As well as the berries listed below, black currants, elderberries, gooseberries, loganberries, lingon berries and bilberries all provide similar benefits. Try using different combinations of the following berries in your Easy Frozen Strawberry Slush Recipe.
- BLUEBERRIES – why add blueberries to your pantry? Blueberries are packed with antioxidants . They Contain 20 types of the antioxidant Anthocyanin, compared to other berries which contain only 4 of 30. They also contain the phytonutrient, bioflavanoid, which the eyes use for night vision. Plus, they provide fiber, Vitamin C, and potassium.
- RASPBERRIES – in addition to vitamin C — a potent antioxidant in its own right — raspberries contain antioxidant carotinoids, ellagic acid, and quercetin.
- BLACK RASPBERRIES – due to their almost-black pigment, they are higher in anthocyanins than red raspberries. They also contain cancer fighting phenols, such as ellagic, coumaric and ferulic acid. As well as calcium, vitamins A, C, E and folate.
- STRAWBERRIES – contain more Vitamin C per serving than an orange and are high in folate at only 53 calories per cup. They also contain calcium, magnesium, and potassium.
- BLACKBERRIES – due to their deep color, blackberries are high in antioxidant anthocyanins and polyphenols to help prevent cancer and heart disease. Blackberries are rich in Vitamin C and manganese.
- CRANBERRIES – rich in Vitamin C, cranberries are a natural probiotic, supporting beneficial bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract and aiding digestion. Cranberries contain powerful antioxidants in the form of the phytochemicals known as condensed tannins that are not destroyed by cooking.
