Blueberries contain more powerful disease fighting antioxidants than any other fruit or vegetable. So much so, they are often referred to as “brain berries” of “youth berries”.
Ever wondered why Blueberries have that intense blue-purple colour? This is attributable to the anthocyanin pigments. The darker the berry the higher the anthocyanin content. Anthocyanin is what gives blueberries their powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Blueberries are packed full of nutrients and phytonutrients. They are rich in vitamin C and vitamin E as well as fibre, folate, potassium, manganese, magnesium, iron, riboflavin and niacin. Not only do blueberries contain beneficial nutrients, they are low in calories too!
