Black raspberries are anticancer powerhouses, even more so than raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, and cranberries. All are loaded with flavonoids and anthocyanidins that reduce inflammation and contain cancer-busting phytochemicals such as ellagitannins and ellagic acid, but black raspberries really stand out. The phytonutrients in black raspberries have been found to inhibit cervical cancer cell growth and tumor formation, inhibit inflammation, and induce apoptosis in various cancer cell lines. According to the late Dr. Mitch Gaynor, M.D. world-renowned integrative oncologist, black raspberries are likely the most potent anti-inflammatory food out there.

Black Rasp

Importantly, black raspberries have been found to target cancer stem cells, thought to be responsible for recurrent and progressive disease. Studies also show that dried black raspberry power may improve blood pressure and support cardiovascular health.[i] (For more benefits read, Raspberries: One Powerful Anti-Cancer Fruit.)

Black raspberries and blueberries are particularly high in antioxidant activity. Antioxidants are thought to protect the body against the destructive effects of free radicals. Free radicals are toxic byproducts of oxygen metabolism that can cause significant damage to living cells and tissues in a process called “oxidative stress.” Free radicals are also produced by pollution, cigarette smoke, herbicides, and EMFs (Electromagnetic fields).* For that matter, some free radicals are generated by the immune system to neutralize viruses and bacteria (for information on antiviral substances, please read Epstein Barr Management.)

The trouble is black raspberries are hard to find and only in season for a short time. In this version of pancakes, I added a black raspberry syrup that will wow you. It is made with raw freeze-dried black raspberry powder, and is absolutely delicious.

Black Raspberry Syrup — Mix 1 teaspoon freeze-dried black raspberry powder into 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup.

What sets maple syrup apart from sugar is its minerals and antioxidants.  Some research indicates maple syrup contains some 24 different antioxidants, with Grade B containing more than Grade A. While maple syrup falls in the category of sugar, some research says that pure maple syrup may promote a healthy liver and actually help regulate glucose metabolism and increase insulininsulin release.[ii

Dr. Gaynor believed that everyone should consume black raspberry powder daily, even several times daily to calm inflammation (especially effective for relief from upper respiratory issues).

You can add black raspberry powder to your favorite smoothie recipe or even just to water. You may find black raspberries in capsule form to be helpful as well.
