Health Benefits of Raspberries

 

How raspberries improve your health

There is a legend that the raspberry’s scientific name, Rubus idaeus, was derived from Mount Ida in Turkey (Jennings, 1988). Apparently, Greek Gods discovered the raspberry there and hence the name. At that time raspberries were used as a medicine rather than as a food and the berries were not cultivated but wild.

 

Raspberry seed oil offers anti-aging benefits of improving skin elasticity, suppleness and flexibility, while softening and smoothing the look of wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin.

Because of its composition, raspberry seed oil possesses superior anti-inflammatory qualities which makes it a nice addition to face, lip and sunscreen products. It’s a great source of alpha linolenic acid – an essential fatty acid that has regenerative and anti-aging skin benefits.

Research studies are showing emerging health benefits from nutrients specifically found in red raspberries.

A growing body of research is investigating how some phytonutrients may offer protection against some cancers, heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, cataracts, osteoporosis and other chronic health conditions.

No problem!  Make a natural face mask that will help fade age spots and discoloration.  Combine 2 cups of fresh raspberries and 1 cup of plain yogurt then blend until smooth. Apply the mixture to your face and let it sit for 15 minutes. Rinse with water.

The vitamin C, vitamin E, and raspberry leaf cell culture extract serum has anti-aging and brightening effects of skin.

Skin aging has many manifestations such as wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and dryness. 

Raspberry leaf extracts contain botanical actives that have the potential to hydrate and moisturize skin. Topical products with these ingredients may therefore combine to provide improved anti-aging effects over single ingredients.
