Eat Those Berries

Posted 08/16/2012 | By HealthCorps

Berries of all types are associated with nutrients like phytochemicals that provide health benefits. Eating a variety of colored berries mean you get the benefit of different phytonutrients.

A recent study suggests that eating blueberries and strawberries at least twice weekly (more is better) may help to reduce the risk of Parkinson’s disease. In the study, more frequent consumers of berries were compared to individuals who only ate berries once a month. Those who consumed at least 2 servings of these berries weekly had a 25% lower chance of developing Parkinson’s disease.
