Blackberries are a British classic. Super low in calories and featuring a meagre y 43kcal per 100g, they are rich in soluble and insoluble fibres plus they contain tons of phenols, (antioxidant compounds) which are linked to a range of health benefits including anti-aging and reductions in neurological disease.

Fresh berries are an excellent source of vitamin C and they carry enough vitamin A, E and K to further boost your immune system and boost your overall health. To top that they contain minerals like manganese, magnesium, potassium & copper plus moderate levels of the B-complex group of vitamins to boot!

Time to get your blender out and pop in some blackberries!
