A handful of blueberries contains hardly any calories. In contrast, it contains a lot of nutritional values.
These little globules are packed with vitamin C.
We all know vitamin C. It protects us against flu and colds, among other things.
In addition, blueberries contain a large portion of vitamin K and the mineral manganese.
Vitamin K contributes to healthy blood vessels and strong bones. In addition, vitamin K contributes to healthy blood clotting.
Manganese contributes to the supply of energy to the body. The body can then use this energy to perform certain functions.
Well, enough with this technical chatter.
Of course, the best health benefit of blueberries is that they slow down the signs of aging.
Ha! We just want to hear that of course.
Blueberries are real antioxidant bombs. Antioxidants protect our body against the attack of free radicals.
Free radicals are harmless in themselves. We even need them a little bit. They are by-products released during the combustion of nutrients in our body.
These released free radicals protect our body against viruses, among other things. Our body system is built in such a way that it can clean up excess of these free radicals itself.
But during the day our body is also attacked by external free radicals. Think of smoking, alcohol, make-up, stress and UV light.
Our body cannot compete with this. This excess of free radicals causes oxidative stress in our body. I always explain to my clients that they should see it this way that we are rusting inside. This sounds nice and simplistic. But it is simply not better than that.
When we are young we have much less trouble with this because our own body cells are also a lot younger and stronger. But as we age, the quality of our body cells deteriorates. As a result, they are less able to cope with the free radicals from outside.
That is why it is good to eat many products that contain antioxidants.
In addition, I take an antioxidant in supplement form every day from my own supplement line, there I devote a blog another timen)
Finally, I want to give you a tip: a tasty, fresh and nutritious breakfast or lunch with blueberries, something different than a smoothiee)
Top 2 high-fiber crackers with seeds and kernels with a lot of cottage cheese, very little saturated fat, a lot of protein and a handful of blueberries.n.
Optionally, you can sprinkle the crackers with some cinnamon or sprinkle with some lemon juice. Cinnamon and lemon seem to bring the taste of blueberries.
