Raspberries are the edible fruit of a plant species in the rose family. There are many types of raspberries — including black, purple and golden — but the red raspberry, or Rubus idaeus, is the most common.
Raspberries are high in several powerful antioxidant compounds, including vitamin C, quercetin and ellagic acid. Support collagen production and support the immune system. A review of studies suggests that raspberries and raspberry extracts have anti-inflammatory and antioxidative effects that protect human cells from oxidative damage causing ageing and that may reduce your risk of chronic diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity and cancer.
