Berries are one of the best sources of antioxidants you’ll find; it also doesn’t hurt that they taste delicious. The antioxidant properties in berries help fight something called oxidative stress which is caused by free radicals. Free radicals are atoms that are formed when oxygen interacts with certain molecules. The danger from them comes when they interact with cellular components such as cell membranes or DNA. The biggest antioxidant micronutrients are Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Beta-Carotene. Because the body cannot make these nutrients itself, it’s important to get it through your diet. Berry up!
