According to Navindra P. Seeram, Ph.D., assistant professor at the University of Rhode Island College of Pharmacy in Kingston, berries of all hues are antioxidant-rich.

What does that mean?

Well, it simply means they combat free radicals, molecules that can cause widespread cell damage and are linked to chronic inflammation.

Inflammation is the type that is persistent at contributing to aging, and it also thought to be at the root of most chronic diseases, from cancer, heart disease, and diabetes to Alzheimer’s, arthritis, and osteoporosis.

Extra tidbit: Berries not only taste good, they’re chock-full of vitamin C, another potent antioxidant that may help keep your complexion looking smooth by fighting those pesky (skin-damaging) free radicals.
