  • Six new studies point to red raspberry's potential anti-inflammatory properties

The benefits of red raspberries are to be mentioned in the upcoming Experimental Biology conference which will take place in San Diego.

Some new findings about red raspberries will be discussed at the 2016 Experimental Biology conference which will take place in San Diego. The research is based on half a dozen animal studies.

The effects of red raspberry intake on CV disease, blood sugar levels and the health of the liver will be noted down. Also the links between its consumption and anti-inflammatory effects on the bones are to be discussed. The matter was taken up by the January issue of Advances in Nutrition

Red raspberries are the healthiest of fruits. They lower chances of diabetic complications, obesity and dementia. These diseases are related to metabolic processes, oxidation and inflammatory responses in the body.

Although more work needs to be done, these initial animal studies will go a long way in establishing the salubrious effects of this wonder food. Not only are red raspberries a good source of vitamin C but they provide a whole lot of fiber as well.

These forms of natural produce are packed with ellagitannins and anthocyanins. There is plenty of evidence that these nutrients halt many chronic illnesses. 

Dr Ara Kirakosyan studied the effects of red raspberry consumption on obese rats. Also mice that were given a typical western diet that was high in lipids and sugars were fed red raspberries. Their metabolic syndrome markers improved considerably.

The results were published in The FASEB Journal. Liver function was also noted down in case of mice that were given red raspberries to eat.

Finally, the anti-inflammatory response in the bone tissue of mice thanks to polyphenols found in red raspberries was also noted down. These experiments prove once and for all that red raspberries have multiple benefits.  

Tom Krugman, Executive Director of the National Processed Raspberry Council spoke of how these luscious fruits were a health cornucopia. Dr Neil Shay was responsible for studying metabolic syndrome in mice that were fed red raspberries.

Dr Giuliana Noratto looked into the anti-diabetic properties of red raspberries. Last but not least Dr Geoff Sasaki and Dr Amber Thomas studied liver function and bone inflammation in mice that got a solid nutritional dose of red raspberries.
