Along with strawberries and bananas, it is safe to say that blueberries are right up there in the ranks with those other two super foods. In fact, some may argue that blueberries could be the most beneficial of these three. Let's breakdown the positives:
1. Low in Fat
A one-cup serving contains only 80 calories and virtually no fat.
2. Loaded with Dietary Fiber
A handful of blueberries helps satisfy recommended daily fiber intake. Fiber helps the body regulate properly, the heart healthy and cholesterol in check.
3. Full of Phytonutrients
Phytonutrients in blueberries, called polyphenols, have antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory properties that may help lessen the inflammatory process associated with chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, and other age-related diseases.
4. Packed with Vitamin C
One serving delivers almost 25% of one's daily requirements of vitamin C. Vitamin C aids collagen formation and helps maintain healthy gum and capillaries, as well as a healthy immune system.
5. Rich in Antioxidants
Antioxidants are the natural substances that fight damage caused by free radicals. Every day, our cells wage a battle against free radicals - unstable oxygen molecules that are a normal byproduct of metabolism. When you aren't getting enough antioxidants in your diet, free radicals can build up in your body, causing oxidative stress, which is associated with cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other diseases of aging.
