Super Cherry Antioxidant Juice

Cherries, beets and purple carrots are all full of anthocyanins, which are powerful antioxidants that reduce free radicals, reduce inflammation and possess anti-viral and anti-cancer benefits. They are particularly helpful in reducing the risk of heart disease, as they improve cholesterol levels, control blood sugar metabolism and also fight oxidative stress. Other foods that are high in anthocyanins include: blackberries, blueberries, cranberries, eggplant, plums, prunes, raisins, red apples, red cabbage, red or purple grapes, red onions, red pears and strawberries.
