5 reasons why Blueberries are awesome!

Help with weight loss

Blueberries are high in fibre which is an important factor in weight loss and management. High fibre foods leave you feeling more satisfied and reduce appetite, making you feel fuller for longer and thereby lowering your overall calorie intake.

Fight wrinkles 

These little blue gems are packed full of vitamin C, which is an essential nutrient in Collagen – the skin’s natural support system. This helps to smooth wrinkles and improve overall skin texture. Just one cup of blueberries provides 24% of your recommended vitamin C.

Protect against memory loss

A 2012 study suggested that eating at least one serving of blueberries a week slowed cognitive decline by several years. One study found that berries might protect the brain by clearing toxic proteins that accumulate there. Must remember that! 

Maintain healthy bones

There is so much goodness in blueberries that you could spend a whole blog post just listing them! Iron, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium, manganese, zinc and vitamin K in blueberries all contribute to building and maintaining bone structure and strength.

Detox and boost general health

Blueberries contain more antioxidants than most other fruits or vegetables and may help prevent damage caused by cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer's.

.....and they taste great too!
