Abstract

In the present review, we describe chemical and chemopreventive properties as well as health benefits of both extracts and bioactive compounds from various types of berries including small soft-fleshed edible berries and from berry-like fruits such as strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, mulberries, currants, gooseberries, elderberries, açai berries, and pomegranates. In particular, we describe how berry-derided phytochemicals, including anthocyanidins, proanthocyanidins, flavonols, flavanols, stilbenoids, terpenoids, ellagitannins, and ellagic acid target oxidative and UV radiation stress-induced DNA damage, Helicobacter pilori infection, pro-inflammatory as well as the major cancer hallmarks.
