Blueberries are not only tasty; they are also low in calories and especially rich in Vitamin C. They are a good source of fiber, leading to improved digestion, as well as of manganese and iron.
What mainly characterizes these fruits is their abundance of natural pigments: anthocyanins and antioxidant carotenoids.
Berries and leaves have a number of properties that have been used for generations to treat and prevent digestive disorders, improve circulation, maintain eye health and reduce inflammation.
