Blueberries are among the powerful sources of antioxidants in the world. They contain a huge amount of vitamin C among many other very important micronutrients.
It’s no surprise then that blueberries have been shown in studies to do everything from booting cognitive function and performance on tests, to enhancing the mood and combating cancer!
Blueberries are very low on the glycemic index too, which means that they won’t hit you with a large number of carbohydrates and spike the blood sugar. This is important seeing as inflammation is actually made a lot worse if you consume large amounts of simple carbs.
This list is focussed on what you can eat in order to prevent and combat inflammation but remember this is as much about what you avoid eating as what you seek out!
