Raspberry and its healing properties

Raspberries not only have a pleasant smell and delicious taste, but are also very valuable for your health. Both fresh and dried fruit and raspberry juice provide extremely valuable nutrients that affect the health of the entire body. Natural vitamins contained in raspberries can be very helpful in periods of physical exertion and mental weakness.

 

 

Raspberries are a real treasure of vitamins and antioxidants

We can find vitamins such as vitamin A, B vitamins (e.g. B1, B2, B3), as well as vitamin C in large amounts. In addition to vitamins, we also find minerals, e.g. potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium and iron. Berries, which include raspberry, are characterized by a high content of bioactive substances – other than the aforementioned vitamins and minerals. For this reason, raspberries also contain carotenoids, essential oils, pectins, tannins, organic acids, mucilages, antioxidants, e.g. ellagic acid, flavonoids, anthocyanins (i.e. polyphenols).

 

 

What does that actually mean? If a product has an antioxidant function, in other words: antioxidant – it means that it fights oxygen free radicals, which can contribute to the development of diseases and accelerate the aging process. Raspberries in their composition have a lot of substances that fulfill this function. These include the aforementioned polyphenols (phenolic acids, flavonoids, flavonols, anthocyanins), vitamins A and C, tocopherols, carotenoids, organic acids, calcium and selenium. Thanks to the presence of all these ingredients, raspberries, in addition to the aforementioned properties, have anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and anti-cancer properties. They prevent damage to the body’s tissues by inhibiting the formation of free radicals. Interestingly, a high consumption of vegetables and fruits rich in flavonoids equates to a lower incidence of ischemic heart disease, and ellagic acid, belonging to phenolic acids, has very strong anticancer and antiviral properties, thanks to which raspberries and raspberry preserves (e.g. juice, syrup) ) can be recommended for colds.

Raspberries for infections

Raspberry tea, raspberry syrup or juice will help you fight a fever, “sweat the disease”, relieve a slight sore throat, alleviate cough and, above all, warm up effectively to prevent infection at all. They are also known to have a sedative and blood pressure-lowering effect. Raspberries are used in folk medicine because due to the content of ellagic acid, characterized by antibacterial properties, they support the treatment of colds. Raspberry juice has been used to treat fever for centuries, as both the leaves and the fruit have a diaphoretic effect.

 

 

Due to the content of salicylates, raspberries have a similar effect to aspirin. They are effective and 100 percent safe for the body.
