“Health A to Z” – R

The Letter R.

Raspberry

Delicious and delicate fruit consisting of multiple globules aggregated into Raspberryberries. An important seasonal food for Ancient hunter gathers, who no doubt helped spread the plants. A natural source of the phytonutrient ellegic acid. Contains other phytonutrients and flavonoids, vitamin C, riboflavin, folate, niacin, as well as manganese, magnesium, potassium and copper. Consume quickly after purchase as they are highly perishable.

Resveratrol

Resveratrol is not a drug. It’s a natural product! Plants make this molecule as a defense mechanism to protect them from attack by fungi, insects and other organisms, and it’s now been proven to be good at protecting us from the diseases/symptoms of aging.  Resveratrol is thought to be what helps the French keep healthy despite their high fat diet.
