Fruits for Health and Anti-Ageing
Research on Resveratrol
In 1992 two Cornell University plant scientists suggested that resveratrol might be responsible for the cardiovascular benefits of red wine. Reveratrol might protect against cancer, heart disease, vascular dementia, alzheimer’s disease and support longevity. One possibility is that resveratrol turns on genes that make sirtuins, ancient proteins which are found in virtually all species. Activating sirtuins kicks off a response that fights disease and prolongs life. More research needs to be done
Strawberries are Anti-ageing
Strawberries contain vitamin C, manganese, fiber, copper, potassium, phosphorus, biotin, omega 3 fats. Strawberries also contain resveratrol which research has shown to be anti-ageing and prevents degenerative diseases. Resveratrol was found to be richer in the seeds than in the fruit pulp.

Health Benefits of Raspberries
- Scientists know that metabolism in our fat cells can be increased by phytonutrients found in raspberries, raspberry ketone.
- By increasing enzyme activity, oxygen used and heat production in certain types of fat cells, raspberry phytonutrients like rheosmin (raspberry ketone) may be able to decrease risk of obesity as well as risk of fatty liver.
- Raspberries contain vitamin C, manganese, fiber, copper, vitamin K, patothenic acid, biotin, vitamin E, magnesium, omega 3 fats, folic acid, potassium.
