Many research has proved that Blueberries are considered a superfood. Blueberries have huge benefits and are known to be a heart-healthy superfood that’s so easy to include in your daily life. The highly versatile blueberries can be enjoyed as it is - a snack, or incorporated into various recipes.

Research findings indicate blueberries contain antioxidants, high in potassium, Vitamin C and other nutrients that aid our bodies to stay healthy and may help prevent age-related diseases.

Let's hear more from the expert. Certified dietitian, Georgen Thye shared various blueberries nutrition facts and health benefits below;

1. One cup (148g) of blueberries contributes 25% of your daily value of vitamin C, 14.4 milligrams of vitamin C.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that acts as an antioxidant stabilizing free radicals, thus helping to prevent cellular damage. Vitamin C aids in collagen production; assists with iron absorption; and helps heal wounds and keep your gums healthy. Vitamin C may help support the body’s immune system.

2.One cup (148g) of blueberries contains 3.6g fibre, equivalent to 14% of your daily fibre requirement.

Dietary fibre has been shown to provide numerous health benefits, including improving blood lipid levels, regulating blood glucose, and increasing satiety (makes you feel full longer), which may help with weight loss.

3. Blueberries are rich in antioxidants

Blueberries are believed to have one of the highest antioxidant levels of all common fruits and vegetables. Antioxidants protect your body from free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can damage your cells and contribute to aging and diseases.

4. One cup (148g) of blueberries contributes 36% of your daily value of vitamin K, 28 micromilligrams of vitamin K.

Low intakes of vitamin K have been linked to a higher risk of bone fracture. However, adequate vitamin K intake improves calcium absorption and may reduce calcium loss.

Blueberries are certified as a heart-healthy food by the American Heart Association and contain natural compounds that help the brain stay strong.
