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.

There’s more to health than just your physical well-being, and blueberries do their part in that area, too. Because they’re rich in antioxidants and vitamin C, blueberries help reduce stress, or at least make your body more well equipped to handle it.

Need some tips on how buy and store your blueberries? We’ve got you covered on the next page!

Continuing to eat the lovely wild blueberries from this summer, how wonderful they taste in the autumn! Too bad they did not grow year round! Sigh!
