The Amazing Health & Nutrition Benefits of Blueberries

You can sprinkle fresh blueberries on salads, cereals, yogurt, ice cream, or throw some into a fruit smoothie.

You might not know that blueberries are not only indigenous to North America, but they are also one of nature’s top ten nutritional SUPER-FOODS.

Blueberries rank in the top ten most nutritious and health giving  foods that you can eat! One cup of blueberries has less than 100 calories and more than 14% of the daily allowance for fiber. Blueberries can help to lower bad cholesterol, and they are packed with vitamin C as well.

Ounce for ounce, a blueberry is packed with more nutrition and healing properties than any of other fruit or berry. Blueberries are rich in phytonutrients, cancer fighting complex anti-oxidants, they are rich in the rare and hard to find Vitamin K, they improve brain function and memory, they boost cognitive function, preserve good eyesight, and they even help to keep your weight down and can help to control the escalation of diabetes.  A recent study found that eating blueberries helped to tone down and eliminate stubborn belly fat, which contributes to better heart health and lowers blood pressure.

Additional information about the amount of these nutrients provided by Blueberries can be found in the Food Rating System Chart.
