Raspberry

 

Raspberry (Rubus idaeus): Among several significant phytochemicals, raspberries contain ellagic acid, a phenolic compound that exhibits anti-carcinogenic effects against a wide range of carcinogens in several tissues. Ellagic acid contributes to a significant inhibition of colon, esophageal, liver, lung, tongue and skin cancers in studies with rats and mice.
Raspberries contain coumaric and ferulic acids. Also, quercetin, one of the flavinols found in raspberries, has been found to be an effective anti-carcinogen against skin, colon and mammary cancers in rodents. Anthocyanins are also prevalent in raspberries working as antioxidants to protect against heart disease and age related mental decline. Vitamins A B, C, E and folic acid as well as calcium and magnesium are also present. Raspberries have anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-yeast properties.
