Blueberry Super Food
What is sweet, nutritious and edible? Here is a clue, it is a small blue fruit. That’s right blueberries! Blueberries are often labeled as being a “superfood” because they are low in calories but have many great benefits for the body. Not only are they tasty, but they contain fiber, vitamin A, C, K and B-6, manganese, and iron. They are also made up of about 85% water and an entire cup of blueberries is only 84 calories.
Here are some benefits to eating blueberries:
Reduce Muscle Damage– After a great workout, studies of athletes show that eating blueberries can reduce the inflammation of muscle tissue.
Help Fight Urinary Tract Infections– Cranberries are known to help with tract infections and blueberries are highly related because they contain many of the same active substances as cranberry juice. Blueberries contain substances that prevent certain bacteria from binding to the wall of the urinary bladder.
Aging– Blueberries contain antioxidants that flush the body from toxins and are said to help your body defend itself against dangerous pathogens.
Support Digestion– As said earlier, blueberries are high in fiber. Eating a couple handfuls of blueberries a day can help keep your digestive regular.
These are just a few details about the “superfood” but there are many more. Eating a cup of blueberries a day can be beneficial to your body. Come and visit the store and check out the fresh produce Farm 2 Family Foods and Healthy Home Market have to offer.
