Blueberries are perennial flowering plants with blue– or purple–colored berries. They are classified in the section Cyanococcus within the genus Vaccinium. Vaccinium also includes cranberries, bilberries, huckleberries and Madeira blueberries. Commercial “blueberries” – including both wild and cultivated blueberries – are all native to North America. The highbush blueberry varieties were introduced into Europe during the 1930s.
Not only are they chock-full of the essential nutrient vitamin C, but these berries can also give your body a major boost in other ways:
Reduced risk of chronic disease: The antioxidants in berries may lower your risk of a whole host of illnesses by limiting inflammation and fighting free radicals.
Better brain health: The flavonoids in blueberries can reduce your risk of cognitive decline and dementia by enhancing circulation and protecting brain cells from damage.
