The Best Berries for Fighting Off Free Radicals

by DailyHealthPost Editorial

Cranberries, like blueberries, are native to North America and have been used for medicinal purposes for centuries. In addition to their potential for fighting off cancer and heart disease, they’re also excellent for the regulation of urinary health and stomach and digestive functions, as well as being able to prevent yeast infections and viral infections.

Finally, goji berries, which are originally native to the Himalayas, have been used for thousands of years by Chinese herbalists. These superfruits are great for boosting eyesight and immune function.

Herbalists even believe that they can help you live longer. This is, of course, a direct result of their high concentration of antioxidants, like vitamins B and C and beta carotene, as well as amino acids and iron. Try them dried or in juice or supplements.
