July is national Blueberry month; here at Technical Network we think these special berries deserved a mention in this month.
Blueberries which were originally grown in Native America are classed as a super food due to their extremely high nutritional value and long list of healthy vitamins and minerals, so understandable they can have a significant impact on your health if consumed regularly.
- Blueberries have the highest level of antioxidants than any other fresh fruit
- They neutralise free radicals helping to prevent premature ageing and due to the high vitamin C content they are great at boosting your immune system.
- Help to fight belly fat
- Improved brain function and memory, better motor skills
- Help to prevent cancer
- They lower cholesterol levels so can help with heart disease
- Help to prevent urinary tract infections.
- Help slow the deterioration of vision
- They are a low GI food so you can get your fill of your fruit but not consume as much sugar, great for diabetics.
