HEALTH BENEFITS OF BLUEBERRIES
Blueberries have always grown in the wild and weren’t cultivated until the twentieth century. The Native Americans had many uses for them, both as food and medicine.
In addition to being delicious and easy to eat, blueberries are one of the best sources of antioxidants among all fruits and vegetables.
