For a long time, doctors and scientists did not attach due importance to blueberries, because compared to other popular berries, the content of vitamin C in it is slightly lower. But later it turned out that blueberries are a real superfood, rich in phytonutrients and vitamins, and with many other benefits.
Due to the high amount of antioxidants, blueberries improve night vision, help to adapt to darkness more quickly and restore clarity of vision after exposure to glare, which is very important for those who often drive.
According to the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging, laboratory studies show that a diet that includes blueberries improves motor skills and regains short-term memory that is diminished by aging or age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
Researchers have also found compounds in blueberries that help reduce the risk of contracting infectious diseases.
