According to Joy Bauer, MS, RDN, nutritionist, author, and health expert for NBC’s TODAY show, “the antioxidants in berries can help your body fight oxidative stress caused by free radicals that can lead to illness. Eating a diet rich in antioxidants can help improve your health, protect your skin and hair, and prevent certain diseases. All fruits and vegetables contain antioxidants, but nutrient-rich berries are some of the absolute best sources.” In addition, many berries are loaded with vitamin C, fiber and folate, and they are also very hydrating, so they boost overall health, wellness and will keep you feeling satisfied and energized, especially in the summer heat.
