Including Berries to Your Diet Help Your Skin
By Tom Herrin
While you may have heard quite a bit about the benefits that certain foods provide, some do a lot more than others. Many people try to eat their way to better health with bad plans. There have been several diets that seem to go against sound judgment in overindulging in some things that people have been advised to avoid or limit. The end result, in some cases, has been a certain amount of ruined health. It can be much better than that with careful planning. Berries can enhance a diet with healthy foods that taste good while yielding positive results.
They Can Help With Blood Sugar
People tend to have their ears perk up when there is mention of foods that can have a real impact on blood sugar these days. Without a doubt, that is because diabetes has almost become a national epidemic. There are likely many reasons for the increase in cases, but what people eat and avoid seems to be at least some factor. Berries are known to help to improve blood sugar and the way the body reacts to insulin. They can help to counter the possible effects of high carb meals.
They May Help Maintain a Healthy Circulatory System
In studies, some berries have shown to be effective in lowering the levels of bad cholesterol. They also may help the body prevent oxidation of this kind. By controlling inflammation, berries may be able to keep the arteries functioning better. The cells that line the blood vessels are called endothelial cells, and they help control blood pressure. Berries have even shown to improve blood pressure in smokers, which is pretty significant.
They Can Be Tasty
Berries are a pretty versatile fruit. They come in a large variety. Whether they are cooked or eaten raw, they can still provide benefits to our health. We enjoy them with yogurt or cereal at breakfast. There are so many kinds that you can have a different one every day for weeks without repeating. They are also great with desserts such as cakes or jelled treats. They can be especially good when baked in pies or cobblers. They are one of those things that are really good when eaten alone or with milk or whipped cream. My grandkids enjoy eating them alone with just their fingers as a simple treat.
