Why you Need to Eat Blueberries

Blueberries pack a mighty punch for being so small. Not only are these bite-size berries full of good-for-you vitamins and antioxidants, they are also high in fiber making them the perfect addition to any meal. It’s no wonder we honor them with their own month – that’s right, July is National Blueberry Month.

Just one serving (about a cup) of blueberries provides a healthy dose of vitamins C, E and K. Not to mention, the antioxidants help keep our bodies functioning at their best by reducing inflammation, cholesterol and blood pressure.
