Blueberries rank #1 when it comes to antioxidants. With almost 1/3 more antioxidant power than cranberries. It is also a native fruit to North America and grows almost all year long starting in Florida and moving up the east coast to Canada. Make sure to integrate the skins of the blueberry in your cooking to benefit from all of the anthocyanin in the pigments. Wild blueberries tend to contain more brain-saving bioflavonoids than the domestic ones. Blueberries have many health benefits like lowing cholestrol, helping to prevent UTIs, high in antioxidants to help prevent skin damage and aging, helps with brain memory coordination and balance, and helps to improve eyesight.
