Blueberries Are Little Miracles

by

From research labs around the world, there is growing evidence that blueberries are powerful disease fighters. Here is a summary of what we have learned so far:

•    Blueberries help protect the brain from oxidative stress and reduce the effects of age-related conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.

•    Eating blueberries may reduce colon cancer risk. Phenolic compounds in blueberries can inhibit colon cancer cell proliferation and induce apoptosis (programmed cell death).

•    Blueberries improve night vision and slow macular degeneration by strengthening tiny blood vessels in the back of the eye.

•    Like cranberries, blueberries contain tannins that help prevent urinary tract infections.

When buying fresh blueberries, choose berries that are firm and have a uniform hue colored with a whitish bloom. Shake the container. The berries should move freely. If they do not, they may be soft and damaged or moldy.

When buying frozen berries, shake the bag gently to ensure that the berries move freely and are not clumped together, which may suggest that they have been thawed and refrozen.

The Anti-Aging Bottom Line: Blueberries are one of the highest antioxidant foods around, worth including in your daily diet year-round. They can reduce the affects of neurodegenerative diseases, reduce cancer risk, prevent macular degeneration and much more! Check out our recipes for great ways to use them.

ORAC, oxygen radical absorbance capacity, measures not only the amount of phytochemicals and antioxidants in a food, but also how well these components work together to provide protection and value. One of the reasons blueberries received such a high score is their high concentration of compounds called anthocyanins. Anthocyanins are antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, which help protect against diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, diabetes, heart disease and arthritis. They also help with memory, motor coordination, and night vision, and reduce eyestrain. […]
