The amazing health benefits of eating blueberries

There are many benefits of eating blueberries. Of course they are delicious, but there are also health benefits of eating blueberries.

Berry Jerry says there are lots of benefits of eating blueberries!

Of course the most obvious benefit of eating blueberries is that they are lip-smacking good! There’s nothing that quite compares to fresh picked blueberries with your cereal in the morning. And hot, bubbly blueberry cobbler is really hard to beat.

Blueberry jam is really easy to make and it is great to have on hand for a sweet tooth. I also love to put blueberries in the blender with fruit juices and ice for a nice, cool mid-day snack. But, the benefits of eating blueberries are much more than just the scrumptious taste of them that almost everyone seems to love.

Due to being rich in antioxidants, the benefits to eating blueberries include fighting cancer and heart disease. Antioxidants are known to counteract toxins and destructive free radicals that can damage cells. Such cell damage can lead to serious, life threatening health issues such as cancer. Blueberries also have potential for lowering bad cholesterol which is a huge issue in heart disease.

Prevention of cancer and heart disease are wonderful benefits to eating blueberries, especially since cancer and heart disease are two of the three greatest causes of premature death in the United States.

There are also other benefits to eating blueberries. Blueberries are known to improve vision and to reduce urinary tract infections.

Factoid: Blueberries grow in clusters on a shrub-type bush.

One of the lesser known benefits to eating blueberries is that eating blueberries regularly can improve a person’s memory. They have anti-aging properties and they are great for the digestive system.

Aside from being one of the most delicious foods on planet earth, there are numerous health benefits of eating blueberries.
