Partner Post: Blueberries to the Rescue!

June 6, 2019 Bushel and Berry

Blueberries may be small in size but they pack a big nutritional punch! They’re low in fat and have high concentrations of fiber and antioxidants. Just one serving of blueberries contains almost 25 percent of your daily requirement of Vitamin C.

While you can always purchase blueberries at the grocery store, why not plant your own berry plants this spring and enjoy the benefits of blueberries right from your own backyard? Bushel and Berry® is a collection of seven easy to grow, exceptionally beautiful and delicious blueberry plants that you plant in your garden or in a container on your patio.

Plus, the benefits of gardening are endless in themselves. Caring for berry bushes and plants encourages outdoor activity and helps to reduce stress levels, which can help prevent a number of lifestyle diseases.

Try incorporating more blueberries into your diet and reap the many health benefits. They’ve been shown to:

  1. Improve Memory

A recent study has found that blueberries might help reduce the effects of Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia. Research suggests that the high antioxidant levels found in blueberries can help improve memory and cognitive function in older adults. So get snackin’ on those blues!

  1. Lower Cancer Risk

Blueberries are known as superfruits due to their high antioxidant levels. Studies have shown that the antioxidants found in blueberries can protect from cell damage that could lead to forms of cancer.

  1. Promote Heart Health

Yes, blueberries are good for your heart! This is especially good news since heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. According to the U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council, the consumption of blueberries can help decrease blood pressure, which is a major factor in heart disease.

Find Bushel and Berry® blueberries at select garden centers this spring and improve your health with nutritious blues!
