blueberries

blueberries

Blueberries are a great source of vitamin C which helps promote a healthy immune system, they are a good source of fiber which aids in digestion, and are a good source of manganese which helps bones and assists in metabolizing proteins, carbohydrates, and fats.

Blueberries also have antioxidant properties which helps fight cancer, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s and reduce inflammation associated with knee osteoarthritis. ¬†However it is important to remember that blueberries lose a lot of their nutritional value when served with milk. ¬†Milk interferes with antioxidants, so make sure you don’t eat your blueberries with milk, ice cream, or yogurt.
