Super Fruits: Blueberry

Researchers have found that blueberries are the richest in antioxidant activity as compared with 60 other fruits and vegetables. Anthocyanidins (the pigment that makes blueberries blue) is among the most adundant antioxidants found in these delicious little berries. It is these anthocyanidins that give blueberries their ability to neutralize free radical damage to the collagen matrix of cells and tissues. Blueberries are also high in flavonoids, and known for their free-radical scavenging properties. The nutritional profile of blueberries makes them one of nature's most ideal fruits. They are very high in Vitamin C, and Manganese, a good source of Vitamin E, and an excellent source of dietary fiber.
