5 Benefits of Raspberry

1. Antioxidant Properties

Raspberries are extremely high in various antioxidants, which can help fight aging and slow cancer growth by scavenging destructive free radical molecules in your body.

2. Alleviate Arthritis

Raspberries can fight inflammatory conditions — such as arthritis and gout — in much the same way as aspirin and ibuprofen do: by turning off signals sent by COX-1s and COX-2s, the enzymes responsible for the body’s inflammatory response. Researchers believe that anthocyanins — the water-soluble plant pigments that give the berry its vivid color — are responsible for its anti-inflammatory properties.

3. Burning Fat

This fruit is packed with fiber and manganese. Fiber slows the digestive process so you feel full longer. Manganese is a trace mineral that helps keep your metabolic rate high, which in turn burns fat.

4. Improved Vision

Daily consumption (3 or more servings of raspberry) has been seen to lower the risk of age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), the main cause of vision loss in older adults.

5. Prevents Cancer

Raspberries can restrain proliferation of cancer cells and even the formation of tumors in various parts of the body, including the colon.

  1. Three or more servings a day is a lot of raspberries – not sure how many people would ever eat THAT many – even three times a week would be a lot for most people. Still, a little is better than none, especially if part of a balanced diet 🙂

    1. This is so nice! I live in a region where you can find them at the market only in frozen version. Rarely, you see the fresh version, unless you cultivate your own bush. 🙂 I have some raspberry in my freezer and I’m going to serve it tomorrow, on the New Year’s Eve.
