9) HELPS REDUCE RISK OF CANCER
Antioxidants neutralize free radicals before they can damage cellular DNA, a crucial step in the formation of cancer and tumor cells
10) RELIEVES INFLAMMATION
Several compounds found in these fruits, including beta-sitosterol and essential fatty acids, are powerful anti-flammatory agents. Chronic inflammation is linked to dozens of debilitating heath conditions.
11) IMPEDS NRS FREE RADICALS
Research suggests that OPCs from richly pigmented red-purple fruits, such as blueberries and grapes, may restrict certain oxidants including nitrogen-reactive species.
12) FIGHTS BACTERIA
The battle for health is at the molecular level. In all of these fruits and berries there are
protectants and astringents (from flavones, flavonoids, isoflavanoids) that kill bacteria.
13) FIGHTS VIRUSES
A virus is 1000 times smaller than a bacterium. It works by attacking anything - it can enter a cell and damage it completely. The virus actually fills the cell with itself. This leads to a host of debilitating and degenerative diseases.
14) PROVIDES ESSENTIAL OILS
Oils are an array of incredibly small particles that bind with other nutrients and transport them through membranes. Our bodies would not work without them. They not only transport, but contain phytochemicals themselves.
15) COMBATS EFFECTS OF DIABETES
Many constituents of these fruits may help the body regulate blood sugar and strengthen the pancreas.
16) STRENGTHENS VISION
Zeaxanthin and Lutein stregthen and protect the eye - inhibiting glaucoma, macular degeneration and cataracts.
17) INCREASES MENTAL CLARITY
It is vastly important to get the proper nutrients in a transport system that allows the cells to receive and use them. The brain cell membranes are very protective (thankfully), but they are under an attack 24/7 and need strengthening.
