BLUEBERRY AND ITS BENEFITS

If consumed constantly, blueberries are a panacea for health and the human body: they help to stay fit, improve memory and are used for therapeutic purposes.

Belonging to the Ericaceae family, the blueberry is a berry made up, like other small fruits, mostly of about 85% water.

The high percentage of water present inside it makes the blueberry a fruit with a relatively low energy value, but with a high satiating power.

Furthermore, blueberry berries are moderately rich in sugars, but also particularly rich in vitamin C.

In summary, the blueberry is a small fruit, but with properties suitable for those who follow a balanced diet.

The properties of the blueberry are many more than you can imagine: it is an ally of physical well-being, improves memory capacity and is used for therapeutic purposes.

Let's find out 7 benefits of blueberry that you probably don't know:

  • Improve the microcirculation. Bilberry contains sugars, mineral salts, vitamins A, B and C. It also contains myrtillin, an important ally of the circulatory system since it reduces the permeability of the capillaries and strengthens the blood vessels making them more elastic. Its intake therefore improves the microcirculation.

  • Ally against ageing. Among the properties of blueberry we find the ability to slow down the aging process. Vitamins C and A contribute to the formation of collagen, responsible for cell regeneration. The result is more hydrated skin, with various benefits such as less visible wrinkles.

  • Improve memory. Anthocyanins, which give bilberry its characteristic color, also help us improve our memory capacity because they increase mnemonic activity.

  • Ally against cystitis and stomach ache. The tannins contained in this fruit prevent bacteria from developing. Taking blueberries therefore improves intestinal tract disorders such as diarrhea, inflammation or indigestion. It then helps to counteract inflammation of the urinary tract such as cystitis.
