  • Want to get more berries into your diet? Blueberries are rich in antioxidants called anthocyanins that give them their brilliant blue hue. These berries are being studied for their anti-inflammatory effects and cancer-fighting power. Research suggests anthocyanins in blueberries may help keep cells that line the digestive system healthy. 
  • Looking to try a new healthy ingredient? Matcha powder has 10 times the antioxidants of regular green tea (per 1 cup prepared) because you consume the whole tea leaves rather than water with tea steeped in it.
  • Green tea contains antioxidants called catechins that may help prevent and fight cancer based on cell studies. In people, drinking green tea is linked to lower risk of colorectal cancer.
