FILL UP On (Frozen) Berries
Chomp on these flash-frozen nutrition bombs – all year! To max the health benefits, aim for at least two cups over the course of a week
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.
Flavonoids have been linked to reducing risk of cognitive decline by enhancing circulation and brain-cell signalling, and helping protect brain cells from damage.
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.
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.
Phytonutrients in berries contain anti-inflammatory properties, which may help reduce risk of chronic diseases such as cancer.
