BLACK MAGIC

Eating Naturally - - What To Eat - 28

High in vi­ta­min C and fiber, this im­mu­nity blend is an anti-can­cer hero. The an­tho­cyanin pig­ments in black­ber­ries com­bine with the flavonoids in basil for an anti-in­flam­ma­tory punch, pro­tect­ing cells from ox­i­da­tion and chro­mo­somes from ra­di­a­tion. An an­tibac­te­rial su­per­star, basil also eases cramps, bloat­ing, and in­di­ges­tion. Add the or­ange-blos­som wa­ter for a “wow” mo­ment!
