Benefits of berry family enormous

Galveston County Daily News, January 29, 2013

In this guest column, UTMB’s Dr. Victor S. Sierpina writes that the nutritional value of berries is extensive because their rich supply of antioxidant pigments, carotenoids, fiber, folic acid and vitamin C each make a contribution to long term health. “Berries have been found in many studies to improve eye and brain health; blueberries have been found in research studies to reduce risk of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. They have been called ‘brainberries’ for this reason.”
