8 Superfruits to Try Today
Blackberries don’t exactly have the new, exotic flair of some of the other fruits on this list but their health benefits and nutritional content are too important not to mention. Blackberries rank in the top 10 of the United States Drug Administration’s list for antioxidant power and the berries are specifically rich in polyphenols, the same antioxidant compound that’s found in green tea and may help with illnesses such as cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis and some forms of cancer.
Blackberries are also rich in dietary fiber, with about 1 cup delivering as much as a third of your recommended daily fiber intake. If you’re already eating blackberries (either fresh or frozen) on a regular basis, then keep up the good work. If not, consider making them a staple in your frozen berry smoothie mix.
