Sweet and bursting with flavour, these delicious seasonal treats are packed with antioxidants like Vitamin C. They help fight cancer, inflammation, and diseases related to aging. The fibre in strawberries help to reduce ‘bad’ cholesterol, while the folate keeps your heart healthy and reduces the risk of anemia.
A low-calorie fruit, these make an excellent snack or dessert, and are a great source of Vitamin C and potassium. Potassium is a key electrolyte that keeps your body functioning properly and helps to balance water levels throughout your body.
An excellent source of beta carotene, these seasonal sweets are rich in antioxidants, phytonutrients, and melatonin. Their distinctive red colour is a product of powerful antioxidants called anthocyanins which work to reduce inflammation, prevent cardiovascular disease and certain cancers, reduce the risk of diabetes, and aid in the prevention of memory loss.
These little beauties increase your iron absorption, and are a natural laxative. High in Vitamins A and C, they help with your eyesight, and are a high source of dietary fibre.
