Health Benefits of Raspberries
Whole Raspberries are an outstanding source of phytonutrients, such as anthocyanins, flavonoids, stilbenoids, phenolic acids, tannins and lignans. They are an unusually concentrated source of ellagitannins (like ellagic acid), cyanidins, and pelargonidins.
Whole Raspberries contain a good amount of minerals like magnesium and potassium. As a vital component of hundreds of enzymes, magnesium is involved in producing energy, forming proteins and controlling blood sugar levels. Both magnesium and potassium help protect against high blood pressure and support normal nerve, muscle and organ function. Raspberries also provide phosphorus and calcium, the primary building blocks of bones and teeth.
Add whole raspberries to your diet and you’ll boost your intake of manganese and copper. Both minerals keep your connective tissues – a group of tissues that includes your bones and skin strong. Copper also helps prevent DNA damage by functioning as an antioxidant, while manganese helps you metabolize carbohydrates and regulate your blood sugar levels. Raspberries are also a good source of iron and zinc. Copper and iron are required to manufacture red blood cells, and iron and zinc are important to immunity.
