A Note About Berries

photo 9.jpg

Berries are such a powerhouse of phytonutrients they are considered a nutraceutical. This means they transcend ordinary food by imparting health and having medicinal benefits including prevention and treatment of disease. Like any other plant, some varieties are superior to others. Berries are rich sources of dietary antioxidants and other bioactive compounds (flavonols, phenolic acids, ellagitannins, vitamins C and E, folic acid). The high antioxidant content of berry crops has been associated with a reduction of coronary heart disease, improved visual acuity, anti-viral and anti-cancer activity.
