Phytochemicals are plant pigments that have several amazing health benefits. One phytochemical, anthocyanin, is linked to healthy blood pressure, reduced risk of heart disease, improved memory function and a lower risk of cancer. Since this phytochemical is found in red, pink, blue and purple fruits and veggies, try foods like blackberries, blueberries, eggplant, figs, plums and purple grapes to improve your health and ward off chronic disease.
