Bringing you the heart of the matter in LifeCycles by Laurie Edwards-Tate-All about blueberries.

Pleasing to the palate and low in calories, blueberries are considered a superfood.
Delicious and beautiful blue-purple hued blueberries are one of America’s favorite fruits.

Along with only 84 calories per cup, a serving of blueberries contains 4 grams of fiber, 24 percent of the RDA for Vitamin C, 36 percent of the RDA for Vitamin K, and 25 percent of the RDA for manganese.

They may also provide significant protection from the damage caused by free radicals and are considered to have one of the highest concentrations of antioxidants of all commonly known fruits and vegetables.

Blueberries are thought to protect the body against cancer, aging, high blood pressure, heart disease, urinary tract infections and more.

In fact, there are some who believe that blueberries just might be the key to the fountain of youth!
