HEALTH BENEFITS OF AVOCADOS AND BLUEBERRIES
Avocados have 35% more potassium than a banana and contain more natural fiber than any other fruit, which aids in digestion and helps regulate blood sugar. They also contain heart healthy oleic acid which improves your cardiovascular system, adds Vitamin B6 and folic acid which help prevent heart disease. They also contain the master antioxidant “Gluthathione” which boosts your body’s immune system and keeps your nervous system healthy.
North America is the world’s leading blueberry producer, accounting for nearly 90% of world production. Blueberries have high amounts of very beneficial antioxidants, which studies show may help improve memory and slow down cognitive problems associated with aging. Don’t worry about using frozen over fresh blueberries, since new studies have found that we can freeze blueberries without doing damage to their delicate anthocyanin antioxidants (yay!)
