Those Blueberry Benefits You Don't Want to Miss

By Brandi Goodman  

Blueberries are a popular fruit. Eat them plain, toss some into your yogurt, cook them into a delectable sauce for your pancakes, or add them to cereal. The versatile fruit has so many uses. There are also lots of benefits to blueberries you don't want to miss.

Bursting With Antioxidants

The blueish-purple fruit is one of the top contenders for high levels of antioxidants. The flavonoids and anthocyanins within them help to protect your body from toxic chemicals. Toxins wreak havoc on all of your internal systems. Antioxidants have the power to stop them from causing harm. They even help fight cancer.

Boosting Your Fiber

Enjoy a full cup of blueberries and you get 4 grams of fiber. It's around the same as what an apple provides. Your digestive health will be on the right track with blueberries in your daily diet.

Beating Your Age Woes

Worries about aging can creep in quickly. Once you hit 30, you're especially likely to start thinking about how the process of aging is going to affect you. Blueberries help beat some of your age woes. Thanks to the antioxidants, fiber, vitamins, and minerals found within them, some DNA damage gets prevented and symptoms of aging can be stalled. 

Blood Pressure Lowered

High blood pressure is a significant risk factor for heart disease. Eat blueberries every day and watch your blood pressure get lowered. A study found that just 2 ounces of the fruit per day helped to reduce blood pressure by at least four percent within eight weeks.

Brain Function Heightened

Your brain function decreases as you age. Many people experience memory loss, have a hard time concentrating, and can't recall certain words or facts they once knew so well. Blueberries help to stave off this concern. Brain function is heightened with the help of the fruit. The antioxidants and anti-aging factors already discussed are major factors in this phenomenon. 

Bringing the Vitamins

Vitamins galore can be found from blueberries. You may get small doses, but the fruit contains Vitamin E, Vitamin B6, copper, manganese, Vitamin C, and Vitamin K1, among others. Enjoy a full cup of the fruit and you'll be receiving a hefty dose of vitamins and minerals necessary for good health.

Blueberries are a popular fruit for a reason. With so many health benefits and so many uses, you should have the fruit on your daily menu. Don't miss out on all the benefits blueberries provide.
