Ounce for ounce, blueberries are one of the healthiest foods you can eat.

This true “superfood” is very low in calories and is a rich source of vitamin C, vitamin K, manganese and antioxidants.

In fact, blueberries have an ORAC score (which measures a food’s ability to eliminate cell-destroying free radicals in a test tube) of 9,621 — which makes these plump, juicy berries one of the highest antioxidant foods in the world.

And it doesn’t hurt that they taste great too!

What you may not realize is that this superfood is a secret weapon when it comes to maintaining a healthy body weight.

I’ll show you one of my favorite ways to take advantage of the slimming power of blueberries in just a moment.

First, let’s look at 5 amazing health benefits of blueberries.

5 Amazing Health Benefits Of Blueberries

1. Jumpstart A Sluggish Metabolism

Blueberries are packed with a plant pigment called anthocyanins, that’s what gives them their famous blue hue.

An added bonus of anthocyanins: they may help you lose weight.

Although more studies are needed, preliminary evidence suggests that the anthocyanins found in blueberries can jumpstart a sluggish metabolism. (1)

2. Cool Chronic Inflammation

Chronic inflammation is a widespread health issue that’s been linked to obesity, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and just about every other modern malady.

Good news:

In a University of Maine study, eating blueberries daily lowered the output of fat-promoting inflammatory compounds in test animals. (2)

3. Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

I have a real weakness for cupcakes, cookies and other baked goodies. And while there’s a place for occasionally indulging in treats like these, you don’t need me to tell you what they do to my waistline.

A healthier way to satisfy your sweet tooth? Feast on a cup of blueberries.

An entire cup of blueberries is just 84 calories and 15 grams of carbohydrates, but delivers:

  • Fiber: 4 grams.
  • Vitamin C: 24% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin K: 36% of the RDA.
  • Manganese: 25% of the RDA.

Blueberries are a guilt-free pleasure you should snack on daily!

4. Promote Healthy Digestion

Constipation is a problem for 63 million Americans. When your digestive system is slow or blocked, you look puffy, bloated and pounds heavier than your real weight.

If constipation is forcing your belly to swell, blueberries may be the solution you need.

A 1 cup serving of blueberries is packed with 4 grams of digestion-promoting fiber, but that’s not all:

University of Maine health researcher Vivian Chi-Hua Wu discovered that blueberries are prebiotic — meaning they help the good bacteria (probiotics) living in your digestive system so you can experience gentler, healthier digestion. (3)

5. Block Fat Storage

If you’ve ever tried to lose weight in the past, you know that shedding pounds is just the beginning: the real challenge is keeping those unwanted pounds from sneaking back onto your belly, backside, arms, legs and other trouble spots.

One final blueberry benefit: the anthocyanins in these berries can prevent rebound pounds. How?

Anthocyanins may stop fat cells from absorbing new fat. In a 25-year study of more than 124,000 men and women, participants who ate anthocyanin-rich foods like blueberries maintained a healthy weight throughout adulthood. (4)

A Cup Of Blueberries A Day
Keeps The Belly Fat Away!

As you can see, blueberries are packed with a treasure trove of fat-burning, health-promoting potential.

If you’re not already eating blueberries regularly, I encourage you to add them to your diet.

They make a delicious add-in for salads, oatmeal or Greek yogurt; they’re a quick and easy snack right out of the case; but my favorite way to enjoy them is in a Belly-Slimming Blueberry Breeze Smoothie.

Try it yourself with the quick and easy recipe below.

    Can fresh blue seedless grapes be substituted for frozen blueberries

    • Dr. Charles Livingston D.C. Dr. Charles Livingston D.C. says:

      Hello K.D.
      You can but I would really suggest using blueberries. Although grapes are good for you, Blueberries are a superfood! Blueberry antioxidants have been linked to the banishing of belly fat. They include vitamin K, fiber, and numerous compounds that together provide decreased the risk of breast cancer, colon cancer, esophageal cancer, and cancers of the small intestine, as well as healthy cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels. There are also fewer calories in blueberries vs grapes.
      God Bless
