Eating Blackberries Can Keep You Healthy
As a child growing up, blackberres grew wild throughout the vacant fields in the neighborhood. We would go out to the fields and pick bags and bags of wild blackberries. We ate them like it was no tomorrow. I use to mash my blackberries up and sprinkle a little sugar on them. It was a delightful treat.
As kids we never gave thought of the health benefits from eating blackberries. One cup of blackberries alone contains the daily recommendation of vitamin C. The Immune system uses Vitamin C to fight illness. No wonder why as a child I hardly got sick.
