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.
