HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS
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.
Although blueberries have a fair amount of vitamin C, their real power is in their high phytonutrient content which provides an enormous amount of antioxidant protection.
The antioxidant pterostilbene, found in blueberries, is effective in reducing cholesterol and has been shown to reduce the growth of cancer cells, lower the risk of heart disease, and slow the aging process. The antioxidants in blueberries are also believed to reduce the risk of urinary tract infections.
