Blueberries have a high level of phytonutrients, called polyphenols. These have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce the effects of chronic diseases like cancer and heart disease. These phytonutrients also ease menopause symptoms, reduce short-term memory loss and increase good cholesterol.
Blueberries are packed with vitamin C, an immunity booster, and manganese, which helps build bone, and convert proteins, carbs and fats into energy.
