1. They’re packed with vitamin C
Just one cup of raw blackberries has 30.2 mg of vitamin C. That’s half the daily recommended value. Vitamin C is integral to collagen formation in bones, connective tissue, and blood vessels. Vitamin C may also help you:
regenerate the skin
battle free radicals (molecules released by toxins) in the body
shorten the common cold
2. They’re high in fiber
A high-fiber diet may help you:
promote regular bowel movements
control blood sugar levels by slowing the rate of sugar absorption
lose weight by making you feel fuller longer
provide fuel to nourish healthy gut bacteria
3. Great source of vitamin K
Vitamin K is the reason why you don’t bleed profusely when you cut yourself: It helps your blood clot. Vitamin K also plays a role in bone metabolism. Vitamin K deficiency may lead to bone thinning and bone fractures. It may cause easy bruising, heavy menstrual bleeding, and blood in the stool or in the urine.
4. High in manganese
Manganese may help prevent osteoporosis, manage blood sugar levels, and reduce epileptic seizures.
5. May boost brain health
The reviews concluded that antioxidants in berry fruits help fight free radicals and alter how brain neurons communicate. This may help reduce brain inflammation, which can lead to cognitive and motor issues common with aging.
