The Power of Blue

Blueberries rank No. 1 in antioxidant benefits compared to 40 other fresh fruits and vegetables (USDA Human Nutrition Center). Antioxidants help neutralize harmful "free radicals" that can lead to cancer and other age-related diseases. The total antioxidant capacity of blueberries is twice that of spinach and three times that of oranges.

Blueberries are also rich in pectin, a soluble fiber that has been shown in several research studies to be effective in lowering cholesterol.

Live Longer, Live Better - Eat Blueberries!
