Health benefits of highbush blueberries
Blueberries are not only delicious but they are also supremely beneficial to the body:
IMMUNITY: Highbush blueberries have the highest content of antioxidants of all fresh dessert fruit. They support the immune system and prevent the body against infections.
CANCER PREVENTION: The high content of antioxidants and anthocyans makes highbush blueberries not only an important factor in cancer prevention but also a helpful component in the treatment of various forms of cancer.
HEART: Owing to their concentrations of phytoestrogens and dietary fibre – unmatched by other kinds of fruit – blueberries have the capacity to prevent many heart diseases by lowering the level of bad cholesterol (LDL) and increasing the level of good cholesterol (HDL).
BRAIN: The anthocyans, vitamins A, B, C and E, zinc, potassium, sodium, manganese and selenium contained in blueberries can slow down or even – as demonstrated by research – reverse the process of brain ageing, thus allowing us more time to enjoy excellent memory.
DIGESTIVE TRACT: Dietary fibre and numerous seeds have positive effect on the functioning of the digestive system.
URINARY TRACT: Blueberries sustain proper functions of the urinary tract by washing accumulated bacteria out of the body and preventing it against infections.
SIGHT: Blueberries are rich in compounds known as anthocyanosides which slow down the loss of sight and can guard against many eye problems.
COUNTERACTING BODY AGEING PROCESSES: Owing to the high content of anthocyans and dietary fibre, blueberries are capable of inhibiting the ageing of the body by neutralising free radicals.
SLIMMING: Recent studies of American scientists have demonstrated that blueberries can help reduce excessive weight.
