The Amazing Health Benefits of Berries for Beauty & Body
Berries are packed with nutrients to help give you a healthy body and a beautiful appearance. Here are some of the rewards you can look forward to by including berries in your diet.
Berries contain vitamins like A, C, and E that are needed every day. Your body should get these vitamins daily to maintain the immune system’s health and rebuild and repair itself.
Berries are packed with antioxidants that protect our cells and fight against diseases and cancers.
Berries, especially raspberries are full of fiber that is essential for good digestions!
The combination of vitamin C and the vast amount of antioxidants found in berries may help prevent sun damage, and provide your skin with a healthy glow.
May help reduce belly fat
Studies have shown that foods rich in anthocyanins, the pigment that gives blueberries their beautiful color, can alter fat cell function and fat storage.
Improving bone health
Polyphenols may help women, especially after menopause, maintain bone density, say the researchers from the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry.
My Favorite Easy Berry Ideas:
- Buy frozen organic berries and toss them in oatmeal, fruit bowls, overnight oats, and more!! (Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods have the best selection)
- Yogurt parfaits- coconut yogurt with any berry mixture, topped with flaxseed or walnuts.
- Smoothie- this is the easiest way to get a berry-packed meal. Mix berries with banana, flaxseed, plant protein, almond milk or soy milk and ice. Boom, delicious!
