Are blueberries healthy? Just look at these stats:
Low in fat.
A 250ml (1 cup) serving of blueberries is all it takes to make up one of the 7-10 daily servings of fruits and vegetables recommended by the Canadian Food Guide – with just 40 calories, and virtually no fat.
Blueberries are packed with vitamin C.
One serving delivers almost 25% of one’s daily vitamin C requirement1, helping gums, capillaries and the immune system. Just one of the many benefits of blueberries.
A good source of fibre.
A handful of blueberries helps satisfy recommended daily fibre intake, providing nutrition that helps keep the body regular, the heart healthy and cholesterol in check.
An excellent source of manganese.
Along with other vitamins in blueberries, manganese plays an important role in bone development and in converting proteins, carbs and fats into energy.
Blueberries and a balanced diet work together for good health.
Reduced Cancer Risk.
Multiple studies have shown a link between blueberries, nutrition and reduced growth of breast cancer, as well as reduced growth of colon cancer cells.
Research has shown that blueberries can improve insulin response, resulting in lower blood glucose levels and reduced abdominal fat.
