Antioxidant - Blackberries May Be One Of the Healthiest Foods

What’s the single best food to keep on hand in your healthy kitchen? It just might be blackberries, which will be coming into season soon in much of the country. Research published in the July, 2006, issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition ranked blackberries as far and away the most antioxidant-rich food (on the basis of a typical single serving) out of 1,113 types tested.

Next in line were walnuts - which had about 40 percent fewer antioxidants than blackberries - followed by strawberries, artichokes, cranberries, coffee, raspberries, pecans, blueberries and ground cloves.

Antioxidant concentration is not the only nutrition criterion that matters, of course. A healthy diet must also balance macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates and fats) and provide enough fiber, trace minerals, proper hydration and so on. But you can’t go far wrong by eating blackberries on a regular basis.

One thing I have learned is to pay attention to what I am putting in my body. If you put rubbish in then that is what shows up, or grows in our case on the inside and the outside. Love your body and treat it like your child or pet, or something that you love. You are the only one that can take care of it.
