“Superfood” has become a frequently used marketing term, but Blatner says the term is overused, and points out that it may be found on the packages of highly processed foods that just happen to contain a superfood ingredient. “Since there is no legal definition, it’s definitely a buyer-beware situation,” Blatner said.

One cup of fresh or frozen blackberries provides about 60 calories, along with nearly 8 grams of fiber. That’s about a third of the amount of fiber you should aim to eat in a day. All that fiber can help increase satiety, curb cholesterol, support weight loss and regulate blood sugar and insulin levels. It may also boost your digestive health: blackberries are prebiotics, which means they feed the friendly bacteria in your gut that have been tied to immunity, mood and anti-inflammatory benefits.
