All Types of Berries
Because they’re good sources of Vitamin C and fiber, berries help to protect against esophogeal and colorectal cancers. They’re
also rich in powerful disease-fighting antioxidants called anthocyanidins (a pigment that tints plants blue, red, and purple).
Strawberries and raspberries carry high levels of ellagic acid and research suggest this compound tackles cancer on a couple
of different fronts, slowing reproduction of cancer cells, deactivating some carcinogens, and acting as an antioxidant. Enjoy
berries fresh or frozen (sans sugary syrup) for the most benefits.
