Take your pick–blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries are all insanely good for you. In general, the darker the berry, the sweeter the juice–and the better it is for you. Blackberries, for instance, are loaded with anthocyanins, powerful antioxidant compounds that have been shown to improve brain function (and are also found in red wine and tea). Can’t say anything bad about blueberries either, but wild varieties contain 26 percent more antioxidants than cultivated ones. Blueberries also contain vision-protecting vitamin C as well as appetite-quelling fibre (although raspberries have more fibre than any other berries). And scientists now believe that blueberries battle urinary tract infections, says Elizabeth Somer, RD. Strawberries pack up to three times more vitamin C than other berries and have fewer calories, but they’re one of the most important foods to buy organic, according to Keith Block, MD, author of Life Over Cancer, because they have a unique capacity for absorbing pesticides. Berries are high in antioxidants! Check out more antioxidant-rich foods that will keep you healthy — and looking beautiful!
