Health benefits of Blueberries
Native Americans were known to use the potent blueberry to treat coughs. These tiny little berries do indeed pack a punch. They rank the highest of any fruit for antioxidants (those free-radical-fighting powerhouses), and one cup delivers 14% of the recommended daily dose of fiber and nearly a quarter of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C. Blueberries are also low in calories -- fewer than 100 for a full cup, making this little berry a great alternative to unhealthy junk food snacks.
