Cancer-Busting Blueberries


The humble blueberry is a delicious little fruit and it has been known to be a very nutritious one. Recently more and more studies are performed about the health benefits of this tasty superfood. One of the very obvious benefits is the fact that the berries are so low in calories yet fill you up quite quickly, making them a winner for anyone on a diet. There’s fewer than 60 calories in 100 grams of blueberries, and they’re made up of over 85% water too making them the perfect form of hydration for hot summer days. Oh, and just in case you’re on a low-carb diet, there’re only 15 grams of carbohydrates in 100g of berries. If we’re talking nutrient content, blueberries are one of the best out of the berry category, offering 25% of your RDA (recommended daily allowance) of Manganese, 35% of vitamin K, and 24% of vitamin C. Within our bodies there are unstable molecules and these are classed as ‘free radicals’ – cells that could mutate and end up becoming cancer cells. An antioxidant is a molecule that helps to fight back against those free radicals, breaking them down and stopping them from reacting with other cells to cause more damage. Out of all the fruits and in fact, superfoods on this superfood list, this is the one with the most antioxidants, meaning it gives you the most cancer-prevention qualities.
