Mountain Ash Berries
Mountain ash berries or Rowan berries are small, red and acidic berries that grown on the rowan or mountain ash shrubs and trees.
These are spread across North America but they can also be found in Newfoundland and Scandinavia. The berries thrive in the cold so it is little wonder why they also grow in Northern Europe and high up in the Balkans.
Health Benefits of Mountain Ash Berries
1. Prevents Cancer and Slows Down the Aging Process
Mountain ash berries contain high levels of antioxidants which can treat a number of chronic conditions such as cancer. The sorbic acid and quercetin in the berries prevent free radicals from making healthy cells mutate into cancerous cells or destroying them altogether.
Even eaten raw, mountain ash berries boost antioxidant levels which besides preventing cancerous growths, reduce the effects of aging by improving skin health, eye health and muscle strength.
2. Strengthens the Immune System
The berries have high levels of ascorbic acid which stimulates the production of white blood cells and acts as an antioxidant at the same time. It also induces the production of collagen which makes muscles strong and repairs/builds blood vessels. In other words, mountain ash berries improves how fast and well our body heals itself.
3. Acts as an Anti-Bacterial
The sorbic acid in the berries acts as a bacterial and microbial agent on the body and the skin. In other words, when consumed, it interferes with the growth and production of bacteria in the body which in turn prevents diseases.
