Blueberries are a rich source of antioxidants called anthocyanins.  Recent studies show that regularly consuming this fruit, whole or as a juice, can help protect your health in a number of different ways.

  1. Powerful Antioxidant - Blueberries have the one of the highest antioxidant capacity of all the popular fruits and vegetables. Antioxidants rid the body of harmful free radicals.
  2. Reduces DNA Damage - Several studies suggest that blueberries and blueberry juice reduce DNA damage, which is a leading driver of ageing.
  3. Protects your heart – The antioxidants in blueberries have been shown to reduce a predominant risk factor for heart disease by preventing oxidative damage to “bad” LDL cholesterol.
  4. Protects your brain - The antioxidants in blueberries seem to benefit your brain by aiding brain function and delaying mental decline.
  5. Helps prevent urinary tract infections - Like cranberries, blueberries contain substances that can prevent certain bacteria from binding to the wall of your bladder, which may help prevent UTIs.
