The Red-Purple Group includes blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, Pomegranate, and cranberries. This is the last of seven color groups you can review on this Instagram account. Blueberries and Pomegranate have shown beneficial effects on memory. There are many other berries around the world as these are very easy to cross to make new species. In Southern California, the Boysenberry which is a cross between a European blackberry, European raspberry, American Dewberry, and American Loganberry was popularized at the Knott's Berry Farm which is an amusement park near Disneyland. The strawberry grown north of Los Angeles has been crossed to make it over 3 cm tall to please consumers as the original berries were all very tiny to fit into a bird's beak. The Pomegranate originated in Central Asia and has the most potent antioxidants of any fruit. There are more medical references to the Pomegranate than any other fruit. This ancient fruit was known in the Temple of Solomon thousands of years ago and is said to have 613 seeds, but this is a myth. The cranberry is an American berry grown in water that have a unique polyphenol that helps prevent urine infections. The polyphenol are very complex structures and have unique properties. The larger polyphenol are broken down by your gut bacteria into smaller chemicals that circulate in the body with beneficial effects. #drdavidheber #berries #blueberries #strawberry #raspberry #pomegranate #cranberry #polyphenols #knottsberryfarm to learn more go to and
