The health benefits of blueberries

They may be small — but blueberries pack a huge nutritional punch!  Healthy Food Guide takes you through some of the main health benefits of this tasty berry.

Loaded with immune-strengthening vitamin C, vitamin K and fibre, their high level of anthocyanins provide powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.

Being rich in antioxidants helps prevent and repair cell damage.

Blueberries also boost your brain and help to protect it from dementia, decrease cardiovascular risk, and can reduce some cancer risks too.

Best of all, they’re a great low-calorie, delicious snack for any time of the day.

So, sprinkle blueberries on top of your yoghurt, stir them through your banana muffin or bread batter, or pop them into your mouth one at a time, to help keep hunger pangs at bay.
