I hope you are having a fun summer. I love all the seasons but summer has to be my favorite. The hot weather, the festive activities, camping under the stars, and of course, the fruits and veggies. Blackberry season is here and it is abundant. Because of all the water California has received in recent years, the blackberries are big and juicy. In addition to being delicious, blackberries are packed with goodness, like:
Vitamin C everyone's favorite antioxidant boosts your immune system and is essential for wound healing. It also helps produce collagen and neurotransmitters.
Vitamin K is required for blood clotting and keeps your bones healthy. It promotes heart and brain health.
Vitamin A Fun fact: Vitamin A is responsible for producing the pigments in the retina of the eye and helps to support sight, particularly in dim lighting. Night blindness can be a symptom of vitamin A deficiency. Also, vitamin A is great for skin, teeth, bones, and the immune system.
Polyphenols increases brain functions, treats digestive disorders like diabetes, and benefits your cardiovascular system.
