A Chemical Called Anthocyanin Seems to Increase after Freezing Blueberries.
Blueberries have so many health benefits due to their phytonutrient content, fiber, and many vitamins and minerals they contain.
It seems that when you freeze blueberries, one particular chemical that naturally occurs in them increases.
It’s called “anthocyanin”.
Is that a good thing or a bad thing…what is anthocyanin?
Anthocyanin is a natural anti-inflammatory chemical which is also believed to possess some anti-carcinogenic properties as well.
What does this mean for the already healthy benefits of blueberries?
Well, the sooner you start eating frozen blueberries, the common health issues you would normally encounter as you age will be staved off.
Eating frozen blueberries with this increased anthocyanin content may result in:
- improved motor function and protection of your nervous system against damage which preserves your mobility as you age
- lowered risk of cognitive degeneration and improved memory function which wards off age-related illnesses like Alzheimers and dementia
- strengthened arteries and cardiovascular wall integrity which stabilizes your blood pressure
I can confidently say that these improved health benefits are a good thing.
Now you can be sure that frozen blueberries are as healthy for you as fresh blueberries are. So don’t hesitate to stock your freezer with them as space allows.
