Blueberry

Blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum): Blueberries are high in fiber and low in calories and pack more disease-fighting antioxidants than practically any other fruit or vegetable including kale, broccoli and oranges. Researchers at Tufts University found that 2/3 cup of blueberries supplied the same antioxidant protection against free radicals as 1,773 I.U. of vitamin E or 1270 mgs of vitamin C. They rank 3rd on the list of 40 fruits and vegetables tested for antioxidant potential. Researchers believe that the antioxidants and pectin in the fruit may help protect LDL cholesterol from oxidation and slow buildup of plaque in the coronary arteries. Blueberries are rich in anthocyanosides, which may protect both the lens of the eye and the retina from oxidative damage. Blueberries also contain vitamins A, C and E, zinc, iron, potassium, calcium and magnesium.
