Lately I am fanatical with blueberries! Except that they taste delicious, reading about all the health benefits of this tiny fruit makes me want to eat it even more!
Low in fat — coming in at about 80 calories per cup and practically fat-free — blueberries are loaded with fiber to keep you fuller longer. Just a handful can satisfy your daily fiber requirement. Plus, blueberries are an excellent source of manganese, which plays an important part in bone development and converting carbohydrates and fats into energy.
Blueberries also possess notable health benefiting plant-nutrients such as dietary fibre, minerals, vitamins, pigment anti-oxidants, essential fatty acids that contribute immensely towards general health.
Blueberries are rich in vitamins C, Vitamin A and E that can be excellent for the skin. Their main health benefits are thought to come from anthocyanins – naturally occurring pigments that give them their blue colour and act as potent antioxidants. This amazing superfood can boost brain health; much research has focused on blueberries’ anti-ageing role, particularly in terms of mental functioning.
