Raspberry Ice cream.
A fruit with a high antioxidant value
The high percentage of anthocyanins and flavonoids and the massive content of vitamins make raspberry a fruit with a high antioxidant value. Rutin in particular strengthens eyesight and has proven effective in the treatment of retinopathies because it increases the resistance of the capillaries. Raspberries are also ideal in low-calorie diets thanks to the low level of calories (35 per 100 g of fruits) and can also be consumed by diabetics.
A negative calorie friend
Raspberries are a precious food to get rid of the most stubborn fat pads, first of all because they are part of the so-called “negative calorie” foods, those that bring less energy than what the body needs to assimilate them perform a diuretic and purifying action thanks to the high water content and the richness of antioxidant substances beneficial for the circulation, such as vitamin C, beta-carotene and vitamin E.
Raspberry stimulates the body to use fats for energy
But to make raspberries special, it is above all the presence of a particular phenolic compound, a ketone, which stimulates the body to use fats to produce energy. The ketones present in raspberries are similar to those produced by the body when, for example, we have been fasting for many hours and therefore stimulate the body to produce adiponectin, a hormone that ind ues the use of reserve fats as a source of energy. Not only that: ketones also activate norepinephrine, another hormone that increases energy expenditure by using fat deposits. In addition, these substances help to thin the blood and reduce cholesterol, improving the health of the cardiovascular system and counteracting the accumulation of extra kilos.
