Blueberries are a great source of polyphenols, a type of antioxidant that can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Blueberries specifically contain anthocyanins, which have been proven in studies to improve your health and reduce your heart disease risk. The anthocyanins are what give the blueberries that dark blue hue we all know and love.

The antioxidants in blueberries have also been proven to have anti-aging properties. A study published by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America says antioxidants can help fight free radicals in your body. The free radicals are what cause oxidative stress, which can increase your risk of developing chronic diseases like cancer or heart disease.

5 Blueberries help with weight maintenance.

Along with improving your heart health and making you live longer, blueberries have also been proven to help with overall weight maintenance and have even been proven to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, according to a study published by the journal Advances in Nutrition.

In particular, blueberries are full of fiber, which is helpful for your body's digestion, gut health, and even weight loss. One cup of blueberries contains 3.6 grams of fiber, which is 12% to 14% of your recommended daily fiber intake, according to the American Heart Association.

6 Blueberries make your brain sharper.

This small fruit really is super! It can help your heart, it can help your body's weight, and it can even help with your cognitive function. According to one study, consuming blueberries regularly has been proven to help with sharpening one's memory and attention to tasks.
Plus, one article published by the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station through Rutgers University says that blueberries help with overall blood flow to the brain. When you have clogged arteries and your blood flow is slower to the brain, you are at a greater risk of vascular dementia.

Along with blueberries, here are 10 Best Foods to Boost Brainpower.
