Red raspberries/ 6 reasons why are among the healthiest foods

Berries are among Albanian favourite fruits especially blackberries, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries.

Raspberries are the beautiful berries that are best during the summer months, they are delicate and should be consumed immediately.
Raspberries are red, but you can also find raspberries in gold or black.

Here are 7 health benefits of raspberries

1. Raspberries have lots of nutrients

One cup of raspberry provides over 50% of vitamin C, also containing manganese and vitamin K, both of which play a role in bone health. And they supply smaller amounts of vitamin E, B vitamins, magnesium, copper, iron, and potassium.

2. They’re low in sugar

Raspberries are also one of the lowest sugar fruits, and this makes them a great option for anyone who wants to minimize overall sugar intake.

3. They’re rich in anti-ageing antioxidants

Raspberries are antioxidant powerhouses. These health-protective compounds have been tied to lower rates of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and obesity. Raspberry antioxidants also help reduce inflammation, a known trigger of premature ageing.

4. They can protect you from cancer

Raspberry antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds are associated with cancer protection by reducing the reproduction of cancer cells.

5. Raspberries are high in fibre

A cup of raspberries packs an impressive 8 grams of dietary fibre, a third of the daily minimum goal. This high-fibre content also reduces raspberries’ net carb content to about 7 grams per cup (since our bodies aren’t capable of digesting and absorbing fibre).

That fibre also contributes to fullness, blunts blood sugar by slowing digestion, and supports good digestive health. Raspberry fibre also helps beneficial gut bacteria flourish. The latter are linked to stronger immunity and a more positive mood.

6. They may help prevent diabetes

A new study from the Illinois Institute of Technology found that for those who were at risk of diabetes, eating more raspberries reduced the amount of insulin needed to manage blood sugar levels.
