RECOMMENDATION

Berries make a great addition to your breakfast or smoothies whilst providing a natural sweetness without adding a high amount of sugar.

They can be blended frozen with coconut milk or cream to make delicious desserts or eaten with some coconut yoghurt for a quick nourishing snack.

If you are not eating organic berries, be sure to wash them thoroughly or soak them in warm water for five minutes to remove any pesticides.

Why Berries are good for us

Per gram, berries pack a tonne of nutrients whist being low in calories, sugars and carbohydrates.

Studies have shown that blueberries may help fight cancer growth as well as improve cognitive function and reduce the negative side effects for patients undergoing chemo brain.

Berries are one of the most powerful sources of antioxidants and therefore can help heart health, bone density, blood pressure, diabetes management, cancer prevention and mental health.

The cancer fighting phytochemicals found specifically in blueberries include anthocyanosides (one of the most potent antioxidants) and resveratrol (also found in the skin of red grapes).

Berries such as strawberries are naturally high in vitamins C, folate, manganese and potassium. In fact, one cup of strawberries provides 100% of your daily recommendation of vitamins C, however we recommend maintaining a higher amount of vitamin intake at around 1000mg for prevention and up to 5000mg if battling cancer or other sicknesses.
