The Primary Colors May Mean Better Health

By Tom Herrin

Pretty much everyone knows the value of greens.  It has always been one of those things that was understand to be  good to have in a meal.  It is also one of those things that kids, more often than not, have a difficult time choking down.  Other colors are significant as well. Yellow is one that is frequently left off the meal plan, too.  In recent years, blues have risen to greater prominence. In the case of blueberries, they seem to be running full blast in terms of health benefits.  Adding them to your family’s menu may pay big dividends.

They Have Great Nutrient Content

Blueberries have 24 percent of the RDA of Vitamin C, 36 percent of the RDA of Vitamin K, and 25 percent of the RDA of manganese.  They also contain 4 grams of fiber, only 84 calories, and are 85 percent water. This helps to make them filling while moving food through the digestive system smoothly.  This is great for those who are trying to cut calories to lose weight.

Their Antioxidant Content is High

People have discovered just how important antioxidants are in maintaining good health.  They seem to help fight many communicable diseases while serving a good role in slowing, or even fighting, some cancers.  In addition, antioxidants may help to prevent oxidation of LDL cholesterol and reduce inflammation in several areas in the body.  This inflammation-fighting property can act to do this in the blood vessels. The result is lowering blood pressure. In combination with better LDL, this can help to protect the heart from the damage that can be done from these.

They May Help Protect Brain Function

Oxidation rarely takes a break.  It can affect the brain as much as the rest of the body.  The antioxidant properties of the blueberries can help to preserve the brain.  In animal studies, these antioxidants have been seen accumulating in the brain in areas that have to do with intelligence.  In human studies, improvement has been seen in some brain function and delays in cognitive delays in other studies. For the most part, adding those blueberries may bring better health while having a pleasing flavor.  They make great snacks. They are wonderful with breakfast, and they still taste pretty good when baked in pies or cobblers. Pick up a few the next time you go to the market.
