iVillage.com: Dr. Oz's Healthiest Superfoods -- How Many Are In Your Shopping Cart?

12 of 26

Supermarket Staple #12: Berries (Strawberries, Cranberries, Raspberries, Blueberries, Blackberries)

Why It's a Must Have: Berries are nutritional powerhouses! Blueberries, for example, are rich in antioxidants (anthocyanins) and phytochemicals that protect against heart disease, stroke, cancer, oxidative stress (which leads to chronic diseases), and urinary tract infections. They also have anti-inflammatory properties as well that helps to improve skin health, and stimulate the production of collagen,” says Dr. Brock. “And strawberries contain more vitamin C than oranges!”

Budget Bonus: Save money and make your berries last longer by buying frozen -- they may actually contain more antioxidants than their fresh counterparts, says Dr. Brock. “Frozen wild blueberries contain more heart, cancer, and skin-protecting antioxidant activity than at least 20 or more fruits in their class, including strawberries, cultivated blueberries, pomegranates, cranberries, and grapes.”
