Health Benefits of Raspberries

These ruby red berries aren’t just a tasty way to amp up your yogurt or oatmeal bowl. Adding raspberries to your diet also enhances your health in the following ways:

  • Improves memory and delays age-related cognitive decline
  • Lowers your risk of cardiovascular disease
  • Potassium content in raspberries promotes heart health
  • Chock-full of antioxidants that protect the body from free radical damage and prevent cancer
  • Vitamin C content in raspberries contributes to eye health
  • Vitamin C also contributes to skin health

Recipe for Digestive Health

In addition to the above, the combination of raspberries, coconut oil and dates makes this an ideal recipe if you’re looking to beat the bloat and promote a healthy digestion.


Raspberries have a high water content, ideal for relieving bloating. They are also full of fiber, which is good for aiding digestion.

Furthermore, coconut oil has been found to be helpful in cleansing the colon. According to

“Coconut is a rich source of fiber and nutrition. Its oil differs from other dietary types as it is largely made up of medium chain triglycerides, or medium chain fatty acids, as opposed to long chain triglycerides. These have been proven helpful in improving nutrition absorption and eliminating parasitic infections. Coconut oil’s antimicrobial properties also prevent the overgrowth of bad bacteria and fungal infections such as candidiasis, making coconut oil a useful method for colon cleansing.”

Dates can also be a digestion-friendly food as they, too, are high in fiber. In addition, their glycemic index is much lower than that of table sugar making them a healthy choice for sweetening your food. However, they are still high in calories so they must be eaten in moderation.

Try these delicious Coconut Caves for yourself. They make for a sweet guilt-free snack that will leave you feeling better in more ways than one!
