Also called wolf berries, these sweet-tart berries are part of the tomato family but are similar in taste to cranberries. The high antioxidant levels they produce aid in their protection from the harsh mountain terrain in which they grow. You’ll find them in health food and major grocery stores. Their active compounds can block bacteria and viruses from attaching to cell membranes. The berries are also loaded with protein, vitamin C, and other key nutrients.
