Red raspberries are known as the natural candies of the mountain, thanks mainly to their striking color and their sweet and juicy taste. And apart from looking delicious, they also bring many health benefits.
1. Benefits for the heart:
Raspberries help prevent cardiovascular disease and platelet accumulation. It also reduces blood pressure through anti-inflammatory mechanisms. In fact, a study by the Harvard School of Public Health (US) showed that a "sustained and regular consumption of anthocyanins (from raspberries) can reduce by 32% the risk of a heart attack in young and middle-aged women".
2. Control of diabetes:
The fiber in the skin of raspberries helps maintain stable blood sugar. Different studies have shown that people with type 1 diabetes who eat high-fiber diets have lower levels of glucose. And that people with type 2 diabetes improve their blood sugar, lipids, and insulin levels.
3. Improvement of memory:
Numerous studies have shown that taking raspberry improves memory and decreases the delay in aging-related cognitive ability.
4. Eye health:
Foods rich in vitamin C (such as raspberries) help keep eyes healthy, provide protection against damage from ultraviolet light, and delay age-related macular degeneration.
5. Bowel regularity:
Raspberry fiber also helps prevent constipation and maintain a healthy digestive system. It also removes toxins from the body through bile and feces. Increasing the consumption of natural fiber will also help us to lower cholesterol levels and improve weight loss.
