The popularity of blueberries is surging as they are known for their antioxidant effect.This wonderfully nutritious superfood is making its way onto everyone’s hit list. They have a high content of vitamin C and vitamin K and they are also a good source of fiber. You can eat a very large handful whilst consuming only around 85 calories.
�Not only do blueberries help mop up free radicals in the body (these are the baddies responsible for damaging your DNA and cells and contribute to making you look older before your years), but they also protect your heart by decreasing the effects of bad cholesterol (LDL) and reducing your blood pressure.
There is emerging evidence to suggest they can also help in the control of diabetes by affecting the metabolism of glucose in the body. As they are cousins of cranberries, they are also being used to help fight urinary tract infections too! If you need any more convincing did I mention just how tasty they are?
