 ice - cream.No matter how you eat them blueberries do so much good for our bodies. Here a 5 benefits of including berries in your diet...

1. Blueberry's antioxidants and their potential benefits for the nervous system and for brain health is amazing. It helps improve memory. 

2. Blueberries are not really considered to be low in glycemic index (GI) as their GI is between 40 - 53. Either way they have a  favorable impact on blood sugar regulation in persons already diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. 

3. Aid in reducing Belly Fat

4. Blueberries help promote urinary tract health. The building of colonies of certain bacteria like b-coli along the lining of the inner walls of urinary tract is responsible for this infection, resulting in inflammation, burning sensation during in passage of urine and other complications. Blueberries can help decrease the building of bacteria.

5. Blueberries can slow down visual  loss. They can prevent or delay all age related ocular problems like dryness and infections related to the retina.
