Studies have shown phenolic compounds to have chemopreventive properties (the use of a compound to interfere with a disease process).
Anthocyanin is a fruit pigment and antioxidant found in blueberries and other fruits. Scientific research has linked anthocyanin to cancer benefits, improving eyesight, repairing blood vessels in diabetic patients and other benefits.
Fruit Protein Source
Protein is essential for the body. It helps our bodies with muscle building, tissue repair, energy, fighting off illnesses, and strengthening the immune system. Most people get their protein from meat. However, those with healthier lifestyles are avoiding meat and looking for alternative sources of protein. Blueberry is one of the best alternative sources of plant-based protein.
