They have a cooling, heat-pacifying nature, so they are perfect for these warmer, summer days! Berries of all kinds support blood vessels and reduce levels of inflammation in the body. Studies have shown that consuming berries can decrease the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and improve your longevity.
Berries can also calm your thoughts, encouraging a more passive mindset by nourishing the brain. These dark colored fruits are rich in flavonoids which support healthy eyes!
