Health Benefits of Blueberries
While it’s common knowledge that blueberries are healthy, many people may not know just how healthy they are. Blueberries are believed to have more antioxidants than almost any other fruit. It’s because of this reason that they’re so beneficial for protecting our bodies from DNA damage which is a main culprit in the aging process. Studies have also shown that blueberries may reduce blood pressure. (1)(2)(3)
