Health & Nutrition Benefits of Eating Blackberries
Being rich in antioxidants, blackberries help the body in fighting free radicals and thus, avoid various types of cancer, especially breast and cervical cancer.
Yet another benefit that arises from the antioxidants in blackberries comprises of protection against chronic disease.
The high tannin content, and the resultant antiseptic and astringent properties, of blackberries makes them good for tightening tissues as well as treating minor bleeding.
Consumption of blackberry has been found to be beneficial for those suffering from diarrhea and intestinal inflammation.
Mild infections, like sore throats and mouth irritations, can be treated with the help of blackberries.
Blackberries have been used to alleviate hemorrhoids also, another property that arises from their high tannin content.
Blackberries have been found to have anti-bacterial properties and can even help cleanse blood.
Regular consumption of blackberries has been seen to delay the process of ageing.
It is believed that the cyanidin-3-O-glucoside present in blackberry exerts protective benefits against endothelial dysfunction and vascular failure induced by peroxynitrite.
Blackberries are known to contain salicylate, an analgesic or pain reliever, which might help lower the risk of heart diseases.
A dilute tea made out of the leaves, roots, or stem bark of blackberries can be used to treat dysentery.
Regular consumption of blackberries can help strengthen the blood vessels in your body.
Blackberries serve as a great source of ellagic acid, which is known to have antiviral properties.
The high fiber content in blackberries helps maintain digestive health, control blood sugar, lose weight and lower cholesterol levels.
The flavonoids present in blackberries promote vision health, by preventing macular degeneration.

A scientific paper published this month in the journal Cancer Prevention Research suggests that that black raspberries are “highly effective in preventing intestinal tumor development”. Although the exact mechanisms of this cancer inhibition were not determined within in this study, it seems likely that some phytochemimcals within black raspberries, perhaps the polyphenolic compounds, are responsible. Further research in the near future on this topic is likely; however, you do not need to wait to find out the biochemical details to benefit today. Earlier studies have also suggested that black raspberries have anti-cancer properities.
