BLUEBERRIES OFFER A MULTITUDE OF BENEFITS:
Blueberries are native to North America, and date back to pre-colonial times. They are deliciously sweet, rich in manganese, and vitamins C and K. Blueberries contain high amounts of polyphenols, including anthocyanins and anthocyanidins which are micronutrients bursting with antioxidants offering excellent health benefits.
It’s thought that these particular polyphenols interfere with the inflammation process that leads to atherosclerosis, therefore reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. Blueberry polyphenols may also reduce the risk of cancer, and cognitive decline.
Blueberries are also a good source of calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, and B6. Blueberries also aid digestion, are colon protective, and help balance blood glucose. Just adding 1/2 cup to your breakfast bowl can have great health benefits. Eat up!
