Not only are blueberries delicious, they have wonderful health benefits as well!

1) Blueberries are extremely high in antioxidants which boost your immune system and help prevent infections.  In fact, blueberries contain the highest antioxidant capacity among all fresh fruits.
2) The anthocyanin, the selenium, the vitamins A, B-complex, C and E, the zinc, sodium, potassium, copper, magnesium, phosphorus, manganese etc., among others, can prevent and heal neural (brain) disorders.  It is amazing that these berries can also cure serious problems like Alzheimer’s disease to a great extent. They even heal damaged brain cells and neuron tissues and keep your memory sharp.  Researchers found that diets rich in blueberries significantly improved both the learning capacity and motor skills of aging animals, making them mentally equivalent to much younger ones.
3) Blueberry extract, high in compounds called anthocyanosides, has been found in clinical studies to slow down visual loss. They can prevent or delay all age related ocular problems like macular degeneration, cataract, dryness and infections.
4)  The high fiber content (which promotes healthy digestion), the abundant antioxidants, and the ability to dissolve the ‘bad cholesterol’ make blueberries an ideal dietary supplement to cure many heart diseases.
5) A new University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center study suggests that blueberries may help reduce belly fat and risk factors for cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome. 
*Tip* Choose blueberries that are firm and have a vibrant color. Shake the container; if the blueberries do not move freely, this may indicate that they are soft and damaged or moldy.  The deeper the color of the blueberries, the more they are rich in antioxidants and other medicinal values.
