Abstract

Epidemiological studies have provided the evidence that regular consumption of fruits and vegetables reduce the risk of pathological condition such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, inflammation, and aging. Among fruits, berries are considered as superfruits due to their highly packed phytochemicals comprising phenolic acids, flavonoids viz. flavonols, flavanols, and anthocyanins. These bioactive compounds are associated with significant antioxidant, antidiabetic, antiinflammation, and anticancer properties. This review highlights the basic information and interesting findings of some selected commercial berries with their phytochemical composition, antioxidant properties, and potential health benefits to human.
