Blueberries are Antioxidant Rich
Blueberries are full of antioxidants. Antioxidants protect against free radicals and DNA damage. Among other things, antioxidants can help protect against skin aging, Alzheimer's, reduce inflammation, maintain sexual function, prevent hardening of the arteries, and reduce many other health risks. Generally, the deeper-colored fruit offers greater antioxidant protection. Berries have the greatest antioxidant powers, except for certain spices.
