Organic Dried Wild Barberries?


Recommended Posts

What are your thoughts on organic wild barberries?  Are these prone to mycotoxins + mold (which I've experienced most times I've tried to buy dried goji berries), rich in sugar or any sort of potential toxin (like goji berries and atropine), or are these unique and beneficial in some way?  Are they worth including in my diet, or am I better off sticking with frozen wild blueberries / frozen raspberries / fresh blackberries / fresh strawberries as my usual lineup?




"For over 2000 years, the European barberry (Berberis vulgaris) has been revered and used for its medicinal properties. Known to treat an array of ailments from digestive issues to liver problems, organic wild barberries are rich in essential nutrients. They provide an excellent source of vitamin C, which boosts the immune system and supports cardiovascular health. Barberries also contain a unique compound known as berberine that fights bacteria and viruses. To support overall health and well-being, barberries are rich in B-complex vitamins. A single serving of dried barberries is high in antioxidants, which fight free radicals and reduce the risk for premature aging."
