As a clinician, I find it hard to find any major downside to including these berries in most diets, especially if they are consumed in an appropriate serving size and added to a balanced and healthy diet.

Blueberries provide essential vitamins and nutrients that can support your cardiovascular health, insulin response, cognitive health, and more.

They are a low-calorie fruit that may even help to keep the doctor away.

Blueberries are rich in antioxidants, including anthocyanins, which give them their beautiful blue color and act as an antioxidant.

Wild blueberries have more anthocyanins than ordinary blueberries, but all types of blueberries are beneficial due to their dietary fiber, iron, vitamin K, vitamin C, and phytonutrients called polyphenols. Eating blueberries may improve cardiovascular health and help to prevent heart disease. They may also support brain health and cognitive function, even improving cognitive aging in older adults.

Blueberries may aid in glucose management, improve post-meal glucose management, and modulate insulin response. They may also help to lower blood pressure. Blueberries are a versatile fruit that can be added to oatmeal, smoothies, yogurt, or eaten frozen for a refreshing snack. There is little risk in incorporating them into your diet and many potential health benefits.
