Raspberry: Benefits for Your Skin and Health

Raspberries offer a slew of health and beauty benefits. According to StyleCraze editor Ravi Tadimalla, raspberries contain flavonoids, fiber, and antioxidants that protect against diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.

Plus, raspberries contain vitamin C, which boosts collagen, evens skin tone, relieves redness, and protects against wrinkles and environmental damage.

All these actions also make raspberry a potent anti-acne weapon.

Raspberries’ antioxidants also slow collagen breakdown, keeping skin looking younger for longer.

Another benefit? According to Tadimalla, raspberries contain anthocyanins, pigmented compounds that also lend color to blueberriesblackberries, and blackcurrants

In addition, anthocyanins offer these benefits for your skin and health:

  • slow aging
  • fight inflammation
  • protect against disease
  • strengthen blood vessels and platelets

Even a little anthocyanin goes far. For instance, adding 0.2 milligrams of anthocyanins to your daily diet reduces heart disease risk for women 45 and older, says Tadimalla.
