One of the keys to living a healthy disease free life is eating a diet packed with nature’s foods.

We don’t give enough credit to the power of food that comes straight from nature. But when you do your research you will see that there is incredible healing potential in these foods.

Berries are one of those miracle foods that nature has made.

Berries are considered to be one of the most disease preventive foods on the planet. They are extremely high in polyphenols. Polyphenols are the most abundant natural antioxidants in our food supply.

If you are not familiar with what antioxidants do for us, they protect our cells from toxins. Toxins that can turn a healthy cell into a cancer cell.

But that is not all that berries are known to do. Here some of the many health benefits you get when you incorporate berries into your daily diet.

  1. Lowers inflammation
  2. Slows down aging
  3. Lowers your risk of heart attack
  4. Lowers blood pressure
  5. Lowers your risk of Alzheimer’s
  6. Increases dopamine in the brain
  7. Protects you from cancer (especially breast, colon, and liver)
  8. Stabilizes your blood sugar

The key to maximizing the health benefits of berries is to eat a variety of berries and always buy them organic.  Several studies have shown that organic berries have a significantly higher concentration of phenol antioxidants than conventionally grown.

Here are some of the great health benefits of each berry. Diversity is key. So be sure to try all the different types.
