Blueberry: Properties and benefits

Blueberries are a very precious fruit for the health of our body. It is exceptionally rich in anthocyanins. Substances with powerful antioxidant and anti-aging action. It also contains flavonoids in good quantities which make it an excellent ally of our immune system. This fruit is particularly suitable for the well-being of the eyeball and our sight since it preserves its functionality (its daily consumption favors an improvement in vision especially at night). It also has positive effects for our skin (which makes it elastic and younger) and for our vascular system which helps protect against diseases such as arteriosclerosis). These precious virtues derive (as well as from the flavonoids and anthocyanins mentioned above) from its exceptional vitamin content (vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B1 and B2, vitamin K and vitamin E) and mineral salts (calcium, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, potassium etc.) which make it, in fact, an excellent tonic for our body. Due to its countless beneficial properties this fruit should be consumed as much as possible and preferably every day even if its availability is limited to only a few months of the year.
