I’ve been sharing a lot about berries this week. I’m participating in a July Berry Challenge, initiated by Anthony William and intended to encourage people to include more berries in their diets. There’s a good reason to make sure these little super fruits are enjoyed daily. They are powerful antioxidants.
Antioxidants fight free radicals in the body. Put simply, as Anthony writes in Life Changing Foods, antioxidants mean life, while oxidation, caused by free radicals, means death. Berries provide the antioxidants we need to fight oxidation and the aging process, and to survive the constant threats to our health and wellbeing.
Berries are an excellent source of iron, magnesium, selenium, zinc, molybdenum, potassium, chromium and calcium. They also contain traces of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids, plus they stop excess adrenaline from damaging organs. Berries are rich in phytochemicals, amino acids, and coenzymes.
Berries are brain food. They enhance B12 and reverse brain lesions, calcifications, heavy metal deposits, scar tissue, adhesions and damage caused by expanded blood vessels. Berries protect against all brain disorders including cancer, ALS, Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, stroke, aneurysm, and migraines.
For heart health, think of adding more berries as well. These fruits protect heart valves and ventricles and remove plaque by dissolving fat deposits in veins and arteries. Plus, berries promote fertility by helping to keep a woman’s reproductive system in constant balance.
Bring more berries into the body to ease insomnia, inflammation, depression, anxiety, adrenal fatigue, thyroid disorders, fibromyalgia, eczema, psoriasis, edema, high cholesterol, hot flashes, heart palpitations, tingles, numbness, nerve pain, chest pain, dizziness, tinnitus, sluggish liver back pain and knee pain.
Grazing between meals with handfuls of berries raises the body’s vibrational frequency. And picking berries yourself, any of the varieties, is an extraordinary grounding experience.
I enjoy berries in a variety of ways. I add frozen strawberries and wild blueberries, one of the most powerfully healing foods on the planet, to my morning smoothies. I add berries to salads, combine them with melons, create flavored waters and teas with them, use them to top frozen banana ice cream and eat them fresh, by the handfuls.
I’ve felt a tremendous shift in my health and life, since adding more berries to my diet. I am deeply grateful for this simple, miraculous food.
