Want to drink a natural beverage that is easy to make and packed with health benefits? Brew some raspberry tea! Raspberries contain a high level of vitamins and nutrients. These include anthocyanins that provide the body with anti-inflammatory effects, helping to reduce the discomfort linked to arthritis, gout, and other inflammatory problems. The antioxidants ellagic acid and quercitin are also found in raspberries and fight against bacteria and fungi in the body. Additionally, raspberries have been found to offer protection against the development of some types of cancer and improve the strength and health of the heart and circulatory system.
