Amazing fruits #7 Raspberries

With their summer scent, raspberries are not just sweet, juicy and fragrant - they are also good for you.  The delicate fruits contain easily absorbed vitamins and minerals, essential for the healthy functioning of your body. We all remember from our childhood the delicious raspberry syrup that can quickly put you back on your feet when you’re ill. Not only the fruit, but also the leaves have a beneficial effect on your health.

Colds, flu, exhaustion and elevated temperature are the times when we all need a cup of raspberry tea. It’s no accident that raspberries are used in illness. Infusion from the fruit and young leaves of raspberry works very effectively. It stimulates sweat glands to work more intensively, thereby lowering the temperature of the body.    

Raspberry nature

The sweet and juicy raspberries not only pamper us with their taste and aroma, but they are also a rich source of B vitamins (B1, B2, B6) as well as  vitamins C, E and K. Very strong anthocyanins they contain support the body in its fight against free radicals. Valuable nutrients found in raspberries include natural organic acids and pectins, as well as minerals such as magnesium, calcium, iron and potassium. The unique composition of natural compounds gives raspberries anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. The fruits protect us effectively against various infections caused by viruses and bacteria.

Demanding, to put it mildly

After harvest, ripe raspberries are very delicate and sensitive to change of temperature and humidity. They can not be stored for long periods and don’t like long-distance transport. Raspberries need special conditions. If they are not eaten right after picking, when they are fresh, they will go off quickly. Their fruit is delicate, but the plant itself copes very well in continental climate. Raspberry bushes can grow wild and they bear fruit throughout the summer, until late autumn. They wither slowly in autumn frosts, to grow new green shoots in spring and summer.

The advantage of versatility

Raspberries fully deserve to be so popular. They are used in the pharmaceutical, food and cosmetic industries. They are processed and used for the production of syrups, juices, tinctures, infusions, teas, jams, sauces, face masks, creams and peels. Also drugs are made from raspberry fruit and leaves. In the production process, the fruit lose some important nutritional values.
