More Reasons to Eat Blueberries

Posted: 05.29.2015

There has been much research into the health benefits of blueberries.  Blueberries are low in calories, high in fiber and rich in antioxidants and nutrients.  Studies suggest they may help promote cardiovascular health by improving blood flow, as well as contributing to brain health and improving memory and cognition.  Blueberries may also improve insulin sensitivity.  Research also suggests that they may help fight cancer.  Like cranberries, they may stop bacterial growth in the bladder to help prevent urinary tract infections.  Their phytonutrients may protect the retina from sunlight damage.
