By Serena Reidy

You’re probably aware that blueberries are a superfood, but do you know why? Blueberries are not only one of the tastiest fruits; they are also packed full of nutrients and can do wonders for your health. Read on to find out why you should be eating more blueberries!

Blueberries are a great source of vitamins, such as vitamin K and vitamin C. While vitamin K stops blood clotting and strengthens your bones, vitamin C boosts your immune system so you’ll have a lesser chance of catching a cold.

They boost the brain. This is because blueberries contain a large amount of phenols, which can improve your focus and sharpen your memory.

Blueberries can also keep your skin glowing. Some skin care products are made using blueberry extract since it can reduce acne and prevent damage from the sun.

They are high in antioxidants, which fight off harmful molecules in your body!

Blueberries can improve your vision. They are rich in anthocyanin and vitamin E, which work together to keep your retinas healthy and prevent clouding of the lens.
