How to Get Berry Healthy

by Jo-Ann Heslin, MA, RD, CDN on September 6, 2018 · 0 comments

Berries get their red, purple or blue color from natural pigments known as anthocyanins. A recent Finnish-American study showed that anthocyanins in berries could activate the SIRT6 enzyme function which may reduce the expression of cancer genes and cancer cell growth. The regulation of this enzyme could open up new avenues for cancer treatment.

While the research continues, this is another good reason to regularly include berries in a healthy diet.
