Although you will need a lot of blueberries to get juice from, they are packed full of goodness. They are great for your immune system and are high in antioxidants – in fact you can't buy a more antioxidant rich berry, as they contain high amounts of bioflavonoids and anthocyanidins. These antioxidants have been said to protect blood vessels from oxidative damage, also from chemical damage from things like alcohol and cigarette smoke. Antioxidants have been said to reduce many serious diseases, such as heart disease and cancer, they also help to reduce ageing, as they strengthen the connective tissue in the body.
Just like blackberries, blueberries are antibacterial, and so can neutralise unfriendly bacteria, and so can be helpful combating diarrhea. This is because they can neutralise the foreign bacteria in the body.
Blueberries also contain anthocyanidins, which are phytomedicines beneficial for our eyes. These phytomedicines protect the eyes against cell damage and improve the capillaries that supply blood to the retina.
Blueberries also contain many other vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamins B1, B2, B6 C, Beta-Carotene and Folic Acid. They also contain Calcium, Iron, Magnesium and Zinc to name just a few.
