Raspberries, it turns out, are a hot new subject for botanists and biological researchers. This year's Experimental Biology conference saw six studies presented on the fruit.
Scientists from around the world have discovered that the nubby red fruit contains a wide variety of important nutrients that may protect you from cardiovascular disease and bone loss, and keep your blood sugar levels healthy and liver function strong.
But that's not all. New data show that raspberries also reduce your risk for a roster of metabolically based chronic conditions, such as obesity, Type 2 diabetes, and even Alzheimer's disease.
Raspberries ease the body-wide inflammation that is associated with such conditions.
So we suggest starting your day with a handful of these tasty treats sprinkled on your oatmeal or blended into a smoothie. Then toss them in a lunch salad dressed with a dash of raspberry vinegar and extra-virgin olive oil.
You can also mix them with some nonfat Greek yogurt for an afternoon snack and consider them a great dessert choice when drizzled with melted dark chocolate alongside a sliced banana or mixed with blueberries.
Are you ready for raspberries?
