The process of aging, pollution and our daily activities cause the buildup of oxidants in the body. Oxidants are free radicals that attach to the cells that destroy cell membranes and genetic material. It is this process that lead to cancer or other diseases associated with aging.
Phytonutrients prevent this by way of 'sacrificing himself' so oxidants, which can also attack nerve cells, do not stick to the cell, but to himself and then go wasted with impurities of the body so that diseases can be prevented.
Other benefits of blueberries are short-term memory capacity that we need to ensure memorization remains in the brain while it is stored in memory for more permanent storage; ability to learn the space you need now to memorize the road, as well as improving motor skills.
Not only that, Blueberries also contain chemical elements are anti-inflammatory substances. Smoking also causes inflammation of the blood flow smoothly, which will keep the intake of energy for mental functions (memory, problem solving, etc.) keep the mood remains happy and prevent hardening of the arteries (thus preventing heart disease). associated with heart disease, blueberries also keep nitri oxide substances that make the artery walls of the arteries stay flexible which is a condition that can prevent the disease.
Blueberry Contains potassium, function is able to control blood pressure in hypertensive patients, prevent the development of vascular damage renal glomeruli and tubules, Lowers the risk of stroke, Lower urinary calcium excretion and decrease the formation of kidney stones, Lower demineralization of bone (osteoporosis), Reducing the risk of ventricular arrhythmias in patients with cardiac ischemia, heart failure, and right ventricular hypertrophy.
Blueberry mengadung iron can increase blood-forming substances, here is very good for women.
In the anthocyanin compounds contained in the phytonutrients anthocyanins Where acting as anti-oxidants (Oxidants are free radicals that will stick with the cell membrane and damage as well as the genetic material of cells). Prevent malicious function of aging.
Blueberries contain chemical element manganese which is anti-inflammatory substances. Smoking also causes inflammation of the blood flow smoothly. Increase the memory capacity. This is expressed by doctors Jeremy Spencer, from the Department of English Department of Food Bioscience. He said, scientists have proved the potential and health benefits of fresh fruit is. "Our research proves that blueberries are very good for you and can increase the memory capacity," he said as quoted by the BBC.
Keeping the substance that makes nitric oxide remains flexible walls of the arteries which is a condition that can prevent heart disease.
Containing ciprofibrate to help lower cholesterol, which in turn may protect the liver
There are still a lot of its content of vitamins A, C, calcium, phosphorus, and various other essential minerals.
