berries are really healthy!

When it comes to our health, the berries have a great reputation: blueberries are jam-packed with antioxidants called anthocyanins, which can help to keep the memory in the form, as you get older, and raspberries contain ellagic acid, a substance with a cancer-inhibiting properties. All berries are great sources of fiber, which is important for a healthy digestive system, but two new studies suggest that the berries also can be good for your heart and your bones. According to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition gave a daily intake of just under a cup of mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, black currants, Lingonberries and aronia) an increased blood levels of "good" DHL-cholesterol and a reduction in blood pressure-two positive things when it comes to maintaining a healthy heart. A second attempt made by Florida Study University suggest that polyfenolerne in blueberries may also help to maintain healthy bones after menopause.
