Did you know July is National Blueberry Month? Besides their vibrant fresh flavor that reminds us of summer, blueberries have amazing antioxidant powers and health benefits!

Here’s 5 reasons to eat more blueberries:

  •  Vitamin C. This vital, immune boosting substance is abundant in blueberries.
  •  Antioxidants. Blueberries contain the the chemical anthocyanin, which has been proven to boost health in a wide variety of areas including  improving heart health and decreasing the chance of stroke.
  • Reducing Cancer Risk. Several chemicals found in blueberries fight free radicals and have been proven to help fight cancer
  • Lower blood pressure. Blueberries are high in levels of potassium, a mineral that helps lower this symptom.
  •  Fiber. A cup of blueberries contains as much as two slices of whole wheat bread. Blueberries are a slow carb, meaning that the glucose in them is released slowly into the blood stream without a spike in blood sugar.

Blueberries are also low-calorie! Enjoy blueberries fresh while you can for maximum health benefits and freeze some to enjoy during the colder months.
