More than most fruits, blueberries contain more anti-inflammatory nutrients. Most of the nutrients in blueberries are found in their dark blue skin, which is full of phytonutrients called flavonoids, specifically the antioxidant anthocyanin that helps keep the brain healthy. Other health benefits of blueberries are:
- help you see better
- reduce inflammation throughout the body
- lessens the risk of cancer
- improve blood flow and cardiovascular health
- improve neurotransmitter function of the brain
- decrease belly fat
Call to Action:
Blueberries are in season, go pick some or purchase them and freeze some to eat throughout the year.
