Fresh veg­eta­bles, fruits, berries are just a store­house of vit­a­mins and essen­tial trace ele­ments that are so nec­es­sary for the body in order to sur­vive the harsh win­ter.

By the way, win­ter is the peri­od of ripen­ing of lin­gonber­ries, berries of amaz­ing coral col­or, which have long been known for their heal­ing prop­er­ties.

Quite a lot is said about the ben­e­fits of lin­gonber­ries, but only now sci­en­tists from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Helsin­ki have found that reg­u­lar con­sump­tion of this berry reduces the risk of stroke and heart attack.

It turns out that lin­gonber­ries con­tain polyphe­nols and flavonols, which not only reduce blood pres­sure, but also have a pos­i­tive effect on the func­tion­ing of the heart mus­cle and blood ves­sels. So that the heart does not both­er, experts advise fol­low­ing a lin­gonber­ry diet for two weeks.

By the way, lin­gonber­ries are very tasty. You can make amaz­ing snacks with it. And this berry helps to take care of your beau­ty. Vit­a­mins A, C, E, pectin and carotene, which are found in abun­dance in lin­gonber­ries, are extreme­ly ben­e­fi­cial for hair and skin, and also help main­tain a nor­mal weight. In addi­tion, lin­gonber­ry juice is rec­om­mend­ed for peo­ple with poor eye­sight and dis­eases of the gas­troin­testi­nal tract.

Are you mak­ing lin­gonber­ries? Pick berries only where there are no high­ways and indus­tri­al plants! The fact is that lin­gonber­ries absorb all harm­ful sub­stances from the envi­ron­ment that will not bring any ben­e­fit to your body.
