The good news about blueberries
Though no one food is a panacea, blueberries are unquestionably
a healthy powerhouse food. This small fruit contains fructose,
fiber, vitamins and antioxidants. As a matter of fact, the
USDA found blueberries to be ranked #1 in natural antioxidants!
Antioxidants are involved in the prevention of cellular damage
-- the common pathway for cancer, aging, and a variety of
diseases. An increase in antioxidant rich foods can help
promote healthier minds and bodies.
These amazing berries also seem to aid in the prevention
of urinary tract infections, improve eyesight, lower "bad" cholesterol,
and may even help our ability to remember things. Not to
mention that they are very tasty.
