4 Reasons You Should Be Eating More Berries

BRAND’S® Article -  Four Reasons You Should Be Eating More Berries

Berries may be small in size, but they pack big benefits. With high antioxidants levels and low sugar and calories, berries are some of the most beneficial superfoods for health. Best of all, they can range from humble blueberries, blackcurrants, exotic goji to acai. Still not convinced? Here are some ways that berries can boost your body and health!

Fight free radicals

When it comes to ageing, free radicals are the enemies we want to destroy. They attack healthy molecules and can cause damage to the cells and organs. Antioxidants found in dark coloured berries can help to fight free radicals and guard against age-related health conditions such as cardiovascular disease and cancer.

Manage your weight

Why not try losing weight naturally with berries? As an excellent source of fibre, berries can help to keep you feeling full for longer. Just one cup of fresh blueberries a day makes up your daily five servings of fruits and vegetables. That’s a relatively high volume of naturally sweet treats with low calories, making them a great alternative to chocolate.

Delay cognitive decline

The benefits of berries also extend to brain health. A study found that eating more berries a day can slow down cognitive decline such as memory loss in the elderly by as much as two and a half years. They also lower the risk of age-related health conditions such as Alzherimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.

Support your eye health

Eating berries is also one of the most natural ways to support the maintainance and protection of your eyes. Anthocyanins found in berries can help to protect the retina from damage caused by ageing and overexposure to UV rays and blue light, which can be beneficial for people with cataract. Vitamin C present in blueberries can also help to slow down macular degeneration and protect against vision loss.

While a wide variety of berries are available at supermarkets, you can also get your daily cup of berries in the form of a supplement. BRAND’S® InnerShine® Berry Essence packs seven different types of premium berries specially selected from Europe and America. It contains Vitamins A, C, E and other antioxidants found in berries, which help to boost eye health.

Great tasting, highly nutritious and bursting with health benefits, add berries to your daily diet to improve your overall health in an enjoyable way!
