The blueberry is know as a “longevity fruit” due to its high antioxidant capacity, three times greater than strawberries or raspberries, and significant contents of anthocyanins and flavonoids. These properties have generated great interest, even in the nutrapharmaceutical industry where it is know as the “super fruit” due to its prevention and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and cancer. Blueberries are rich in fiber (pectins), which may help prevent heart disease by lowering abnormally high levels of blood cholesterol.
Foods high in soluble fibers also help diabetics by slowing the release of carbohydrates into the blood stream and maintaining a more even blood-glucose level.
