Delicious, beautiful blueberries are one of the healthiest food items you can eat. They’re widely regarded as an all-star food because they contain antioxidants capable of preventing disease by preventing free radicals from damaging the body’s cells.
Blueberries get their color from antioxidants known as anthocyanins, which have been shown to play a critical role in the prevention of various types of cancer. Beyond that, new studies have suggested that blueberries can prevent devastating cardiovascular disease, including stroke. They may even help prevent neurodegenerative disorders, like Alzheimer’s disease.
