The Raspberry Is Having A Moment


Is raspberry the new kale? A tornado of positive research has recently been published about red raspberries.

So much, in fact, that a recent issue of Advances in Nutrition compiled a comprehensive review of the latest scientific literature. Much of it centers around the bright berries’ impressive results in helping to fight against metabolically based diseases such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and Alzheimer's disease. While these may not seem like dangers to young gym-goers, research indicates that raspberries are a positive influence on metabolism, oxidation, and inflammation, three concepts that clearly effect those who train intensely. Additionally, red raspberries are an excellent source of vitamin C and boast eight grams of fiber per cup. At 64 calories and only seven grams of impact carbs per cup of raw berries, what do you have to lose?
