Raspberries

Raspberries! We all know and love these delicious little berries, but how much do you really know about them? We decided to give it a go and find some of the best facts about these guys, for your reading pleasure!

ANTIOXIDANTS

Raspberries provide us with so many different antioxidants – few fruits are able to provide us with such great diversity. Not only are there an abundance of them, but they are provided in very significant amounts, making raspberries one of the best fruits to protect our bodies!

IMPROVES HAIR, SKIN, AND NAILS

Do you ever feel like your hair lacks the shine you want, or your nails aren’t healthy enough, or your skin doesn’t have that glow you want? Just eat a handful of raspberries! Who knew something so delicious could be so good for you?

PROVIDES ENERGY

If you’re a victim of that 2:30 feeling, or if you’re just not a morning person, skip the coffee. Get a cup of raspberries instead. They make you healthy AND they keep you awake! Could they get any better?

REDUCES ANXIETY

Well, we didn’t really think it was possible, but then we found that they can also reduce your anxiety. Skip the time-consuming bubble bath (except don’t, because those are wonderful), and curl up with a handful of raspberries.

ANTI-AGING

As we age, our “machinery” naturally starts to work a little less well. But those amazing antioxidants again, it’s like they never stop! Unfortunately, no, they are not an edible version of the Fountain of Youth. They won’t make you younger or keep you from getting older, but raspberries promote cell health, which will help you FEEL younger. Isn’t that what we all want anyway? To just feel amazing and vibrant and healthy?

Of course, there are so many more reasons why raspberries are one of the best foods around – their delicious taste and beautiful color, to quickly name another two. But these five prove that, beyond a shadow of a doubt, the Earth can make some truly amazing things. As one of our Farm Stars so beautifully puts it, "[a]ll around us there are plants here to help and we won’t know that unless we immerse ourselves in nature." So go grab a bowl of raspberries and enjoy the summer day! Eat, enjoy, immerse.
