All About Blackberries

One of our favorite summer fruits is the blackberry. Popular because of it’s great flavor and  they are relatively easy to grow. Did you know blackberries are rich in bioflavonoids and Vitamin C?,  They are also very low sodium count and have only 62 calories to a cup. Blackberries have one of the highest antioxidant levels of all fruits.

But wait, it gets better. Eating blackberries can help to promote the healthy tightening of tissue,which is a great non-surgical procedure to make skin look younger. Prolonged consumption also helps keeps your brain alert, promoting clarity of thought and good memory. What? Now I find this out.
