11 Reasons why you Should Have Blueberries

Those sweety, tangy  little blueberries appear from the months of May to October. They are not only pleasing to the tongue but are appeasing to the health as well. Native to North America, these fruits are anti-cancerous , can prevent plaque in the brain, delay aging, help UTI, provide cardio protection and work wonders to one’s overall health. Blueberries are cousins to cranberries and bilberries while being in the same family as that of azalea, mountain laurel and rhododendron. Berries, in general, are not a handful of pretty colours but small gifts of phytochemicals and flavonoids from Mother Nature.

We know that antioxidants help to neutralize free radicals which contribute to the development of a number of degenerative diseases and terminal conditions including cancer,cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment,immune dysfunction, cataracts and macular degeneration. Amongst the carriers of antioxidants (fruits and vegetables) blueberries contain antioxidants in the highest levels. The abundance of antioxidant phytonutrients called anthocyanins makes blueberry a health bomb and perhaps a superfood.  Anthocyanin is capable of preventing cancer and fighting heart disease, and is found in highest quantities in blueberries. It also prevents aging and neurological diseases, inflammation, helps diabetes and bacterial infections including the bacteria e coli.

  1. A raw blueberry contains anthocyanin, vitamin A, C and E, B complex, beta carotene, copper, potassium, manganese, magnesium, selenium, zinc, iron and more.  If copper is a very effective anti-bacterial immune builder, our body uses iron to promote immunity by raising haemoglobin and oxygen concentration in blood. These substances also help to fortify the immunity level to prevent diseases and infections.
  2. Chlorogenic acid helps to regulate the blood sugar levels by slowing down the release of glucose into the bloodstream after a meal.
  3. Pterostilbene, another antioxidant found in blueberries fight cancer and may also help to lower cholesterol.
  4. By reducing ‘bad cholesterol’ with its high fibre content and powerful antioxidants, blueberries support heart health.
  5. As you neutralize free radicals, you also fight aging and degenerative diseases.
  6. Urinary Tract Infections are the contribution of bacteria like b coli which build up along the lining of the inner walls of urinary tract causing inflammation. Blueberries in your diet can thwart these complications.
  7. Thanks to anthocyanosides in blueberries which can delay ocular problems including vision loss. Next to these compounds, the vitamins and the minerals in blueberries also strengthen ocular health.
  8. Berries prove that they are not just a feast to the eyes and the tongue by miraculously reducing the plaque in the brain. They can heal neurotic disorders and cure disorders like Alzheimer’s disease to a great extent.
  9. If you have plenty of fibre in your diet you can certainly have a healthy digestive tract with no worries of constipation.
  10. Surprisingly, blueberries are great mood elevators.
  11. If you are trying to lose weight, then blueberries fit your fruit servings. The phytochemicals in these little fruits lower blood sugar, cholesterol, improve cardiovascular health and check abdominal fat.

The only negative aspect of having blueberries is their oxalate content. For those prone to kidney and bladder problems, berries are not the best of choiceas they contain oxalates in plenty.Oxalates can lead to stones or even oxalate poisoning culminating in death.

    I just arrived in Chiang Mai. I wanted to post on my blog, at Blogspot, but all of the headings are now in Thai, not English. Is the problem with my computer, or the hotel’s wi-fi service, or what? How can I get things back to English again?.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
