Rise & Shine with Blooming Berry Smoothie Mix: The Health benefits of Berries!

Berries have a strong reputation for strengthening immunity and boosting overall health. Composed of mostly water, using some type of berry in your smoothie mix is a great way to pack in additional nutrients without ruining the taste or consistency of your drink. Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, goji and açai berries are some of the world’s healthiest foods. High in antioxidants and polyphenols, these vibrant superfruits do more than just fight chronic disease and cancer. Berries are also high in fiber, which aids in weight loss and digestion, while also helping to lower cholesterol and blood pressure.   Smartfruit Blooming Berry smoothie mix is a functional blend of blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, acai, acerola, goji and maqui berries.


Antioxidant Power


While all fruits and vegetables are a source of antioxidants, berries are among the richest sources, making them superfoods. There are several powerful antioxidants contained in berries. The antioxidants in berries help your body fight oxidative stress caused by free radicals that can lead to illness and diseases. A diet rich in antioxidants can improve your health, protect your skin and hair, and prevent diseases. Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant found in berries that is necessary for the growth and repair of cells in the body, while also promoting a healthy functioning immune system.


Anthocyanins, which also give berries their vibrant colors, reduce inflammation and may help prevent or manage arthritis. Quercetin, another antioxidant commonly found in berries, can also have anti-inflammatory effects for people with rheumatoid arthritis. Together, these two antioxidants help to slow age-related memory loss.




One of the few fruits native to North America, blueberries are a summertime snack, rich in antioxidants, that can help with your memory and promote blood flow by widening the arteries. Eating three or more servings of blueberries and strawberries per week can reduce a woman’s risk of a heart attack.  In fact, a recent study that spanned over 18 years showed that women who ate the most blueberries and strawberries were 32% less likely to have a heart attack.




Raspberries have a high concentration of polyphenols, which can help reduce the risk of heart disease. The cancer-fighting properties in blueberries and raspberries come from two chemical compounds: ellagic acid and vitamin C. These two chemical compounds also work together to help slow some signs of aging in the body. Blueberries and raspberries are also high in insoluble fiber, which helps keep you feeling full for longer periods of time.



Strawberries are bursting with flavor and vitamin C, and as an excellent source of folate, they are healthy for the heart too. Similar to blueberries, strawberries contain compounds that widen the arteries, helping to prevent plaque buildup. Eating strawberries naturally whitens your teeth, giving you even more reason to smile. Like watermelons, strawberries are composed of about 92% water.



Adding blackberries to your berry smoothie mix can help prevent the risk of cardiovascular disease and even cancer. These juicy berries are rich in polyphenols, while containing high amounts of fiber and vitamin C. Blackberries are also a source of iron, calcium and vitamin A, making them a nutritious addition to any fruit smoothie.


Just a few servings of berries per week, either fresh or from a berry smoothie mix can help keep your mind sharp and help your body fend off chronic diseases. A berry smoothie mix can help give your beverage the right consistency and flavor every time. Add berries to your next smoothie if you are looking to boost your immune system and overall health.
