The Benefits of Blueberries

Are blueberries good for you? Sure, they taste great and are the perfect addition to pancakes, muffins, and to even eat on their own, but why were they so important that we had to include them in our ultimate glutathione-boosting supplement

Native to North America, blueberries were a staple in Native Americans’ diets for thousands of years. Eaten fresh in the summer and dried in the winter, nutrient-rich blueberries were not only a delicious food source, but blueberries were also commonly utilized for medicinal purposes. While they are often regularly referred to as a “superfood” today, the health benefits of blueberries have been used for centuries. 

In fact, blueberries are one of the most scientifically studied fruits, with copious amounts of information and studies available on their benefits.

Antioxidant Rich 

Blueberries are rich in antioxidants, which help minimize inflammation, fight oxidative stress, and protect your body from free radicals. The main antioxidants in blueberries are called flavonoids, and the anthocyanin group of flavonoids are particularly beneficial as they are linked to lowering the risk for cancer and chronic diseases.

Lower Cholesterol

Oxidative stress affects more than cells and DNA. When “bad” LDL cholesterol is oxidized, it increases your risk of clogged arteries, heart disease, and more. Fortunately, the antioxidant-rich blueberries can help lower LDL cholesterol levels and prevent oxidation. 

Boost Insulin Sensitivity

Insulin resistance occurs when the cells in your body don’t respond normally to insulin and can’t easily take the glucose from your blood, resulting in a build-up of glucose in the blood. When the body has too much blood glucose, the excess glucose can attach itself to proteins and create more free radicals. But the anthocyanins in blueberries can help improve insulin sensitivity and effectively respond to elevated blood sugar levels. 

Lower Blood Pressure

From postmenopausal women to participants with obesity, blueberries’ benefits have been shown in many studies to reduce high blood pressure, lowering the risk for heart disease. 

Support Cognitive Function

Additional benefits of blueberries support cognitive function and memory. It is believed that the antioxidant effect of blueberries helps fight the oxidative stress linked to accelerated brain aging. It has also been shown that the antioxidants in blueberries may prevent age-related neurodegenerative diseases and improve cell signaling.
