Blackberries

Blackberries: contain 8 grams of fiber & 4.8 grams of sugar per cup, which makes them a great treat. They’re great for your heart. They contain vitamins C & K as well as manganese, along with B vitamins. Their antioxidant compounds may help to reduce inflammation & aging of the arteries, thereby providing protection from heart disease, cancer, inflammation, neurological diseases, & other chronic conditions. Blackberries also are high in soluble & insoluble fiber, packing in 5.3 g of fiber per 100 g serving, the equivalent of 14% of the recommended daily allowance (RDA). Notably, fiber supports digestive & heart health & may assist in blood sugar control & weight management. Blackberries are one of the fruits richest in omega-3 fatty acids. A 1-cup serving of blackberries contains 135 milligrams of omega-3 fatty acids per serving. The polyunsaturated fat content of the same serving size is almost half a gram, making up the majority of its fat content. In addition to being rich in omega-3 fatty acids, blackberries also contain no cholesterol and only 1 milligram of sodium per serving.
