Superfood: Eat More Blueberries!

Nothing says summer like fresh berries, and on top of being downright delicious, those fresh, organic blueberries that are in season right now are packed with nutritional mojo!

Health Benefits of Blueberries

Packed with vitamin C, vitamin K, fiber, and loads of micronutrients, blueberries deliver a nutritional bang for the buck. Studies show that they enhance brain health and can even help improve your memory. They also protect your brain from age-related decline.

A 14-year study that followed 200,000 participants showed that eating blueberries can also help prevent high blood pressure. The researchers believe that it’s the flavonoids in blueberries that helped the study participants fight high blood pressure.
