We hear about anti-oxidants all the time - but what do they do? Your body has unstable molecules called "free radicals." These molecules actively damage other cells, making regeneration difficult. In some cases, the damage from free radicals can lead to the formation of cancerous growths. Anti-oxidants in the body help fight free radicals and protect the "normal" cells. A balance between anti-oxidants and free radicals has been demonstrated to slow or prevent cancer. The dark skin of blueberries is high in anti-oxidants. In fact, out of all commonly consumed fruits and vegetables, blueberries have the highest concentration of anti-oxidants! Regular consumption of blueberries, especially wild blueberries, can help prevent and repair cell damage.
