Benefits of blueberries
Blueberries are top on the list of fruits high in antioxidants. They contain a high content of the potent antioxidant called anthocyanins and have been shown to improve insulin resistance for weight loss.
If you want to scavenge free radicals, lose weight, have glowing skin, and reduce inflammation add blueberries to your smoothie bowls!
Acai powder and blueberries are full of antioxidants that help to counter the effects of free radical damage and inflammation in the body, thus slowing down the aging process and preventing diseases that are associated with excess inflammation in the body.
As with everything, balance is crucial as the body needs the ability to both inflame as it is a healing response to an injury or irritation along with the ability to anti-inflame. With excess inflammation being at the root of many chronic conditions, it is more important than ever to obtain antioxidants in the diet.
It is also necessary to look at what is causing inflammation, such as inflammatory foods (gluten, alcohol, dairy, and soy are common inflammatory foods), toxins in the environment, stress, infections, etc.
Take action to avoid and limit your stressors while increasing the intake of antioxidant-rich foods such as the antioxidants found in this blueberry smoothie bowl recipe.
