Organic blueberries are beneficial to us in many, varied ways. They are packed full of antioxidants, particularly anthocyanin, which make them a nutrient dense food. They have a higher antioxidant concentration than any other fruit!
Organic blueberries help the production of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide dilates the blood vessels, improving circulation, nervous system function, and memory. Who would not want to better support these body systems?!
In only one cup of blueberries, you will receive 36% of your daily requirement of Vitamin K, 25% of your needed Manganese, 24% of your Vitamin C, and 14% of your daily fiber. Blueberries are also low in calories. One cup of blueberries has a mere 84 calories.
Organic blueberries are available year round. Why not add them to your food plan today? We know food is medicine, and we are what we eat.
