Blueberry Weight Loss Smoothies

When it comes to great taste and nutrition, it is hard to beat blueberries! Blueberry smoothies are a great way to add them to your diet. The dark blue coloring in blueberries is loaded with phenols known as anthocyanins which are powerful antioxidants. In fact, they are one of the best sources of antioxidants around. Nutritionists recommend eating 3-4 cups of blueberries every week. Here is everything you need to know about making blueberry weight loss smoothies.

Health Benefits of Blueberries

Blueberries are low in calories and are a fantastic source of vitamin C, fiber, and manganese. This helps your body in a number of ways:

  • Maintain a healthy heart: Blueberries help keep your blood vessels strong. Some studies also suggest that they lower cholesterol.
  • Prevent cancer: Blueberries may promote anti-cancer activities in your body’s cells and may help prevent ovarian cancer and colon cancer.
  • Improve vision: The natural lutein in blueberries can improve night vision and can help prevent the loss of eyesight due to aging.
  • Maintain cognitive skills: Some studies suggest that blueberries will keep your mind sharp and may protect you from some of the effects of Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Avoid urinary tract infections: The natural substances in blueberries help prevent bacteria from adhering to the bladder wall. This can prevent infections of the urinary tract.

Blueberry smoothies preserve all of the health benefits of these remarkable super fruits.

These smoothies are great for losing weight!
