So, what is anthocyanines?

Anthocyanins are a class of water-soluble pigments found in many fruits and vegetables, including blueberries, blackberries, cherries, and red cabbage. These compounds are responsible for the bright red, blue, and purple hues of these foods. Apart from adding color, anthocyanins are also known for their potent antioxidant properties. Studies have shown that consuming foods rich in anthocyanins may help protect against chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. Additionally, some research suggests that these compounds may have anti-inflammatory effects and help improve cognitive function.
