NUTRITIONAL PROPERTIES

BLACKBERRIES

blacberries

BLACKBERRIES ARE ONE OF THE FOODS CONTAINING THE HIGHEST AMOUNT OF ANTIOXIDANTS.

Anti-cancer properties

This fruit is rich in polyphenols, a class of antioxidants known for its anti-cancer properties. In particular, anthocyanin [Link to scientific study] (a type of polyphenol) is found in high concentrations in this fruit.

One study has shown the efficacy of cyanidine-3-glucoside, a specific anthocyanin found in the sea, in terms of anti-cancer properties [Link to scientific study].

Anti inflammatory properties

In addition, some components contained in blackberries act as anti inflammatory agents [Link to scientific study].

APPLES

Apples are rich in fibre called pectin. Pectin is classified as soluble, fermentable and viscous fibre, rich in health benefits.

Neurological Health Benefits

A study published in the Journal of Food Science in 2008 found that eating this fruit can have neurological benefits [Link to scientific study].

Apples are extremely rich in antioxidants, flavonoids and dietary fibre and they can help with detoxification thanks to the high content of quercetin, an antioxidant that acts as a natural anti-histamine and can help stimulate and strengthen the immune system, especially during times of stress.

CELERY

Celery is an excellent source of antioxidants and enzymes, in addition to vitamins and minerals such as vitamin K, vitamin C, potassium, folate and vitamin B6.

CUCUMBER

Cucumbers are a food rich in nutrients such as vitamins A, C, K, magnesium, silicon, potassium and manganese. They have a soothing action on the intestinal tract, so they can be indicated for conditions such as gastritis and indigestion.
