substances that can slow the aging process and reduce cell damage that can lead to cancer.
Blueberries are a particularly rich source of antioxidants called anthocyanins
(also contained in apples, grapes, blackberries, radishes, and red cabbage). Several studies suggest
anthocyanins discourage blood clots from forming, warding off heart attacks. They also appear to improve
night vision and to slow macular degeneration by strengthening tiny blood vessels in the back of the eye.
Blueberries are lovers of the brain. In fact, some neuroscientists call it the brain berry. Studies show that
this fruit may help combat short-term memory loss -- plus, it's full of disease-fighting antioxidants.
