Why Berries Should Be a Regular Part of Your Diet

Posted on 12/23/2021 by Office
Why Berries Should Be a Regular Part of Your DietIt is hard to find a better food for your body. Berries like blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries are some of the healthiest foods on earth. They are perfectly sized for any mouth and are loaded with benefits. Just talking about a small scrumptious serving of berries is making our whole dental office hungry!

The Benefits of Eating Berries

Berries contain flavanoids, which are antioxidant plant compounds. These compounds are linked to lower odds of contracting heart disease. In fact, if you have a genetic disposition toward high blood pressure, blueberries may help to improve blood vessel function. Grab a handful each day to help your hear.

The antioxidants in berries also aid cells to function properly and protect against inflammation. People with autoimmune diseases can benefit from eating berries. These fruits will help decrease inflammation and build up your immune system.

Berries also contain fiber, which keeps you regular and helps you feel full. Eating berries, which contain fiber, will stimulate your salivary glands. Your saliva will clean your teeth and remove food debris while you eat. Next to brushing, this is the natural way of keeping your mouth clean.

Berries Are Only One Way to Help You Have Good Oral Health

Include berries in your diet. They will benefit your body as well as your mouth. In fact, include as many different colored fruits and vegetables as you can throughout your week. Monday could be Mango Monday, while Tuesday could be Taco Salad Tuesday, followed by Watermelon Wednesday. Get creative and eat good food. When you do, you will find your entire body, including your teeth and gums, benefit from good nutrition.
