HEALTH BENEFITS OF BLACK RASPBERRIES

If black raspberries aren't currently part of your diet, consider adding them. Black raspberries contain a great amount of anthocyanins which are immunity-boosting antioxidants. They also contain ellagic acid which is both antiviral and antibacterial. Ellagic acid also works to detoxify the body. These berries are thought to be cancer fighters. Eat these tasty berries several times a week to reap the benefits.

The hormone estrogen is involved in 75% of all breast cancer cases. Mushrooms have been shown to reduce breast cancer risk by 66%! Unique compounds in mushrooms, regardless of variety, regulate estrogen levels by blocking an enzyme known for ramping up estrogen production. Be sure you are including mushrooms in your diet. Mushrooms added to soups, salads, sauces etc. can help keep your immune cells strong.

ADD LEMON TO YOUR GREEN TEA

Green tea is known for its health benefits (see articles on this blog). Research has that adding a squeeze of lemon juice to your cup of green tea allows your body to absorb more of its protecting catechins.

Lime or orange juice may be substituted.
