Learn all about Phytonutrients

Phytonutrients (also known as phytochemicals or antioxidants) are compounds found in plant foods that offer a wide range of health benefits to the human body. Did you know that anthocyanins found in blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, and raspberries can help lower blood pressure and improve neurological health by increasing blood flow to areas of the brain that control memory, language, and attention. Berries also contain fiber which helps stabilize blood sugar levels and lower cholesterol.
