Brainy Treat

By: Esther Vasa

Berries are low in calories, high in fiber, have vitamins like C for immune system function and for strong connective tissue, phytochemicals and flavonoids that help to prevent some forms of cancer and minerals like calcium, magnesium, folate and potassium that your body needs to function normally. The pigments that give berries their beautiful blue and red hues are also good for your health. Cranberries and blueberries contain a substance that may prevent bladder infections. Blueberries and raspberries also contain lutein, which is important for healthy vision. Enjoy any berries that are available to you but make sure they are organic. You can eat them fresh, frozen, dried, make a raw icecream combining with other frozen fruits and soaked nuts.
