FILL UP On (Frozen) Berries

Im­proved Im­mu­nity

One cup of berries pro­vides up to 95% of your daily vi­ta­min C plus other an­tiox­i­dants, which can help ward off viruses dur­ing the win­ter months.

Brain-boost­ing

Flavonoids have been linked to re­duc­ing risk of cog­ni­tive de­cline by en­hanc­ing cir­cu­la­tion and brain-cell sig­nalling, and help­ing pro­tect brain cells from dam­age.

Weight Con­trol

One cup of berries has only 355kJ at most and up to 9g of fi­bre, which helps keep you full while sat­is­fy­ing any sweet cravings.

Steady En­ergy

The fi­bre found in berries also helps slow down di­ges­tion and ab­sorp­tion in your gas­troin­testi­nal tract, which means sugar is re­leased into your blood­stream slowly, a lit­tle at a time.

Dis­ease Pro­tec­tion

Phy­tonu­tri­ents in berries con­tain anti-in­flam­ma­tory prop­er­ties, which may help re­duce risk of chronic dis­eases such as can­cer.
