I eat half a cup of wild or frozen blueberries each day. Blueberries keep us regular and ward off certain diseases. Blueberries have a magical ingredient called antioxidants that protects our immune system. Eating blueberries helps fight heart disease, lowers cholesterol and may prevent diabetes.
Blueberries are high in fiber. Fibers greatest value is in helping to keep us slim. A diet rich in blueberries also helps prevent abdominal fat. Fiber makes us feel full sooner and longer because it moves through our stomach slowly. Fiber also moves fat through our digestive system faster so less fat is absorbed into the body.
