Especially in wild species, blueberries contain anthocyanins, other antioxidant pigments and various phytochemicals, which possibly have a role in reducing risks of some diseases,including inflammation and certain cancers.
Researchers have shown blueberries contain pterostilbene, anthocyanins, proanthocyanidins, resveratrol, flavonols, and tannins, which inhibit mechanisms of cancer cell development and inflammation in vitro. Similar to red grape, some blueberry species contain in their skins significant levels of resveratrol, a phytochemical.
Although most studies below were conducted using the highbush cultivar of blueberries V. corymbosum, content of polyphenol antioxidants and anthocyanins in lowbush (wild) blueberries V. angustifolium exceeds values found in highbush species.
At a 2007 symposium on berry health benefits, reports showed consumption of blueberry powder (and similar berry fruits including cranberries) may alleviate the cognitive decline occurring in Alzheimer’s disease and other conditions of aging.
Proanthocyanidin, a chemical isolated from blueberry powder, can block replication of the hepatitis C virus and might help to delay disease spread in infected individuals if ingested as a dietary supplement at a dosage 1/100th of the toxic threshold.
Feeding blueberries to animals lowers damage in experimental. Research at Rutgers has also shown that blueberries may help prevent urinary tract infections.
Dr. Arpita Basu, an assistant professor of nutrition at Oklahoma State University, showed in several laboratory-based animal and cell studies that anthocyanins, found in blueberries, cause blood vessels to relax and increase production of nitric oxide that helps in maintaining normal blood pressure.
Other animal studies found blueberry consumption lowered total blood lipid levels, possibly affecting symptoms of heart disease. Additional research showed that blueberry consumption in rats altered glycosaminoglycans which are cell components affecting control of blood pressure.
A study soon to be published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry found supplementation of diets with wild blueberry juice enhanced memory and learning in older adults, while reducing blood sugar and symptoms of depression.
Got to love wikipedia, this from an article on blueberries, we should eat more of these little powerhouses, the word about the benefits, needs to be spread and we need to, most importantly support our blueberry growers, buy local people! Newfoundland berries are superior! Ask your grocer to buy local berries!
Blueberries, little berries(Low bush berries here, not the huge high bush) with a blue dust that makes them a staple of Atlantic Canadian diets in muffins, breads, pies, and grunts! Blueberries are high in levels of antioxidants, and fibre(you don’t have to tell anyone who eats blueberries in the woods as they pick them how much fibre are in the little devils! lol)
