Here’s what’s up — Packed with antioxidants and phytoflavinoids, these tiny gems are also high in potassium and vitamin C, making them the top choice of doctors and nutritionists. Not only can they lower your risk of heart disease and cancer, they are also anti-inflammatory. Anti-aging superstars, blueberries are loaded with antioxidants, especially anthocyanins, which have been shown to improve vision and brain function. Studies show that eating blueberries slows impairments in motor coordination and memory that accompany aging. These gorgeous berries also reduce inflammation, which is inextricably linked with virtually every chronic disease from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, to diabetes and heart disease.
Whether it’s fruits, greens or both I personally like to start my day with a protein packed delicious smoothie. Others may enjoy it as a mid-morning snack. Either way, ladies and gents…grab your blenders and get ready to surprise your tastebuds with this awesomeness! Ready. Set. Blend.
