Benefits of Including Berries in Your Diet Plan

Discover the amazing health benefits of berries and why they're a key fruit to include in your diet plan this summer.

They might only be little, but from boosting energy supplies to reducing risk of heart disease, berries are packed with health benefits!Here at Jane Plan we always recommend you add in a handful of berries with breakfast as they contain many vitamins and nutrients that aren’t found in other fruits.

BLUEBERRIES

Studies suggest that blueberries may reduce memory decline, may reduce heart attack risk, and may provide other anti-aging benefits. They are also an excellent source of vitamins C and K, and a good source of dietary fibre.

STRAWBERRIES

High in vitamin C, reportedly 8 strawberries contain more than an orange, strawberries have been proven to help prevent and fight arthritis, cancer, heart disease, memory loss, and wrinkling!

BLACKBERRIES

Packed with vitamin C, blackberries also contain ellagic acid - an important phytonutrient that protects skin cells from damaging UV rays.  Ellagic acid also prevents the breakdown of collagen in the skin that occurs with ageing and has been linked to wrinkling.

RASPBERRIES

Traditionally used to improve liver and kidney function as well as to cleanse the blood of toxins, raspberries also contain vitamin C, B vitamins 1–3, folic acid, magnesium, copper, iron and antioxidants.
