Blueberries BETTER than Viagra!

Hey If I am going to get spammed (click to see what I’m talking about), I’d much rather get an email pimping a blueberry plant than one directed at 60+ males.

Just as a reminder, these tasty little berries are just starting to come into season -and we suggest you buy them by the case! (The photo is my first batch of the season!)

Touted as one of the most antioxidant-rich foods in our diet. Researchers at the USDA Human Nutrition Center (HNRCA) found that blueberries rank #1 in antioxidant activity when compared to 40 other fresh fruits and vegetables. Blueberries are a good source of vitamin C, vitamin E, manganese, and both soluble and insoluble fiber like pectin. Packed with antioxidant phytonutrients called anthocyanidins, blueberries neutralize free radical damage to the collagen matrix of cells and tissues that can lead to cataracts, glaucoma, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, peptic ulcers, heart disease and cancer.
