HEALTH BENEFITS OF BERRY STARS
Lemons are a great source of vitamin C! Vitamin C is critical for collagen synthesis, which is important for healthy skin and new cell growth. It also protects cells from free radicals. Free radicals can damage cells and may contribute to chronic disease.
Yogurt contains probiotics. Probiotics are the healthy gut bacteria found in your microbiome. Consuming probiotics helps populate these microbes, which may aid in digestion and heal your gut. Having a healthy gut may be beneficial for preventing chronic disease and lowering inflammatory.
Berries are a low glycemic food making them a great snack for people with diabetes. They are also extremely high in antioxidants. Anthonyanins, which is the antioxidant found in berries, may have anti cancer, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects!
