Anthocyanins are antioxidants found in dark red or purple fruits and vegetables. Antioxidants remove free radicals. If you have gout or osteoarthritis, try eating tart cherries or drinking unsweetened tart cherry juice.
Anthocyanins also have anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and anti-cancer properties. They’ve been shown to help heart disease, obesity and to ward off urinary tract infections. You can’t go wrong snacking on dark red or purple fruits and vegetables.
Plus, they are delicious in the form of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, grapes and blackberries.
