Berries are known to be high in antioxidants and fiber; they also contain cancer-fighting properties.

Organic blueberries have been proven to contain more beneficial qualities than conventional blueberries. Organic berries, along with healthy fats from coconut meat and coconut water, will take your potassium and magnesium levels up a notch while decreasing your LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol.

Just one cup of this yummy berry drink a day goes a long way.
