Blueberries found to be rich in healthful antioxidants

The results of a study published in the American Chemical Society’s Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry explore the healthy antioxidant content of blueberries, often grown in Mexico and Central America. Scientists have gone so far as to dub them “super fruits” for their myriad benefits to health.

Although there are more than 600 different types of blueberries around the world, those produced in these two areas are especially high in antioxidants. The good news is Mexico and Central America are where the United States receive most of their blueberries from. Maine is also a major producer of the fruit and known for its quality blueberries. Antioxidants provide a number of health benefits, including the neutralization of harmful free radicals.

“[These blueberries] have the potential to be even more highly promising edible fruits,” scientists write.

Those looking to increase their intake of blueberries, or fruits and vegetables in general, may want to consider taking dietary supplements like those offered by Dr. Newton’s Naturals.
