Potent Purple Juice

Purple juice is a great color to add to your regular roster of juices. Not only is it bursting with flavor it also boasts potent phytonutrients like the antioxidant anthocyanin, linked with helping to reduce cancer risk, inflammation, age-related memory loss and cognitive function.  Blackberries even have a higher ORAC score, a measure of antioxidant status than blueberries! Blackberries also contain vitamin C, fiber and ellagic acid, which is best known for its anti-cancer and anti-viral properties.
