Why Blueberries Are The Best Source Of Antioxidants

The best source of antioxidants you can eat is from blueberries antioxidants. Antioxidants are a group of vitamins, minerals and enzymes that work together to help neutralize harmful free  radicals that can increase your risk or certain cancers, diabetes, heart disease, and many other age-related diseases. Harmful free radicals are caused by exposure to radiation, chemicals, pollution, drugs, pesticides, alcohol, junk food, and even sunshine.

What Are the Antioxidants in Blueberries?

Anthocyanins, which are highly concentrated in the deep blue pigment of blueberries, are the best source of antioxidants. The darker the blueberries are, the more antioxidants they contain. Wild blueberries from lowbush blueberry plants are known to have more antioxidants than cultivated blueberries from highbush blueberry plants.

What About Other Fruits and Vegetables?

When compared to other fresh fruits and vegetables, the antioxidant powers of blueberries outrank all others. Grapes, strawberries, kale, and spinach also contain antioxidants, but only a fraction as much as blueberries. Fruits and vegetables that are dark colored tend to contain more antioxidants than light colored fruits and vegetables.

To help your body neutralize harmful free radicals, eat plenty of blueberries.
