Blueberries pack an incredible amount of goodness into such a tiny little package. Blueberries are loaded with antioxidants including some special ones you may have heard of like resveratrol. Resveratrol is the stuff that makes red wine so healthy. Blueberries are also the second most popular berry for consumption in the US behind only strawberries and they also happen to be where FITTEAM FIT gets most of it’s actual flavor from.
Blueberries can help diabetics with blood sugar and A1c levels. There is also some evidence of their being helpful in preventing cataracts and glaucoma. Now for the long list of other potential benefits… Memory improvement, lowering of total cholesterol and improving of HDL (good cholesterol) levels, weight loss, reduction of ulcers, reduction of Multiple Sclerosis symptoms, treatment and prevention of Urinary Tract Infections, improved circulation, and help with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Additionally, there has been some research into anti-cancer benefits focused on breast, colon, esophageal and cancers of the small intestines.
Even pregnant and nursing women can enjoy some of the benefits on blueberries but women who are pregnant or nursing will want to consult their OB, pediatrician and/or lactation specialist. Once again, since blueberry products can help with blood sugar levels diabetics should closely monitor their blood sugar levels and coordinate with their doctors.
