“They may be little, but they are mighty!” Blueberries are considered as nature’s no. 1 antioxidant fruit and the world’s healthiest food.
Blueberries, both wild and cultivated, are packed with unique antioxidants that neutralize free radical damage to our bodies. According to U.S. Department of Agricuture, blueberries were at the top of the list of 40 fruits and vegetables tested for their antioxidant potential.
Further scientific researches show that blueberries help maintain healthy blood flow, improve memory, and even reverse age-related deficits in neuronal and congnitive function. Blueberries also contain ellagic acid, which has been shown to have anti-cancer properties.
I have always loved blueberries. They taste mild, not too sweet, but yet delicious. Every morning, I mix the fresh blueberries with oatmeal as my breakfast. They have become a must-have item on my grocery shopping list. I believe that eating healthy is one of the best ways to honor the Creator who has given us our precious lives.
As we know, an old saying goes “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Perhaps we should change it to:”A bowl of blueberries a day keeps the doctor away?” Perhaps!
