I’m a huge fan of blueberries — I love them especially during the summer months. Not only are they a beautiful colour, but what’s more appealing to me is how many benefits they have.
Blueberries have the highest antioxidant capacity of all fresh fruits. They boost up your immune system and help prevent infections.
These little berries bring out your brighter self by neutralizing free radicals that can cause the body to age. They can help your brain function better and help keep you thinking sharply in your everyday routine — they’re also a great anti-depressant.
My favorite way to eat blueberries is purely on their own or in a smoothie. What’s yours?
