Health.com: 6 Healthiest Berries for Women’s Hearts

2 of 8

Blackberries

These tasty berries are rich in polyphenols, which may help prevent cardiovascular disease and even cancer.

They contain high amounts of fiber compared to other types of fruit: One cup has about 7 grams of fiber. (The recommended daily intake of fiber is 25 to 35 grams.)

What's more, they're rich in vitamin C and contain a bit of iron, calcium, and vitamin A, too.

Bake them in a pie, spread them in a jam on whole-grain toast, or just eat them by the handful!
