Berry melody

As we are approaching towards summer we can find lots of berries in market. Most of the berries are rich in beta carotene and vitaminC.I have used a mixed selection of berries,you can use mixed or just one berry,either way good to have it.
Nutritional Value:
Melons:
Melons are high in beta carotene,vitamin B complex and little vitaminC. Melons give a calming effect on the digestive system with a mild stimulating action on the kidney.Melons are also good for the immune system.
Strawberry:
Strawberry are rich in vitaminC and folic acid.A good cleanser for the whole body.
Raspberry:
Raspberries are also good source of vitaminC and folic acid.Excellent uplifting properties and good for convalescence.
Cranberry:
Cranberries are a good source of beta carotene,B complex vitamins,vitaminC and folic acid.A natural diuretic and urinary tract cleanser.
Blueberry:
The skin contains high concentration of compounds that can destroy harmful bacteria in the gut and keep it healthy.
Blackcurrant:
The skin contains compounds that have the ability to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria.The high vitaminC content gives powerful antioxidant properties.
The above information is from the book 'Good Housekeeping'.
