Rammed with vitamin C, Raspberries are the perfect snack to support your immune system.
Raspberries are full of nutrients and antioxidants.
Just one cup of raspberries contains 12% of your RDA of Vitamin K which supports healthy bones.
Studies have also indicated that eating raspberries could help prevent and manage diabetes by helping to reduce glucose levels after consumption. A study which investigated people with ‘pre-diabetes’ and insulin resistance, found that people who ate berries for breakfast had reduced glucose levels 2-hours later. Similarly, the second study also suggested that eating berries was linked to lower blood sugar levels.
As well as being delicious, raspberries are highly nutritious. Ranked near the top of all fruits for antioxidant strength, they are particularly rich in ellagic acid, quercetin and anthocyanins – all powerful antioxidants which have proven health benefits and help protect the body against disease.
