They are high in fibre which helps digestion, control of cholesterol and also keeps the heart healthy.

In addition, they are a great source of manganese which is important for bone development and the conversion of proteins, carbs and fats into energy.

And lastly, blueberries are leading when it comes to antioxidant activity. Antioxidants neutralise free radicals (which are linked to development of cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer’s).
