How often Should we Consume Blueberries?

Fig 01- Blueberries in the bowl

Actually, there are a lot of berries species in the world, no less than 400 different kinds. In term of colors, they could be:

- black
- purple
- white
- yellow
- red

Blueberry is one of my favorite fruits in the berries “group.” Other favorite berries include:

- strawberry
- blackberry
- raspberry

Ruairi Robertson (published in healthline, August 19, 2020) suggest to consume at least 8 kinds of berries.

Why?

It is because they are healthiest berries. I have mentioned 3 kinds (excluded blackberry), other 5 kinds of berries are:

- Goji berries
- Bilberries
- Acai berries
- Cranberries
- Grapes

In case of blueberry, there are a lot of health benefits, just some (Megan Ware, written in MedicalNewsToday, 2017):

- Lowering blood pressure
- Managing diabetes
- Protecting against heart disease
- Preventing cancer
- Healthy digestion, weight loss, and feeling full

The question then: How often Should we Consume Blueberries?

As recommended by Harvard Health Publishing (June 17, 2020): “Eat blueberries three times per week.”

  2. Excellent information, Evi. I understand that they are also very good at preventing urinary infections. At home we eat a lot of blueberries. We even make liquors...

  7. Adoro qualquer fruta em bagas desde que seja comestível para o género humano. Gosto de Mirtilos tenham a cor que tiverem.
    Gostei de ler os benefícios que estas frutos - e outras frutos -originam na saúde humana.

  9. I had no idea that there was so many different berries, or that grapes counted as berries lol. I only grapes that I like are black grapes which aren't sold very often where I live. I do like raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries, I just prefer vegetables over fruits tbh.

  10. Sweet post. I think the balancing act is getting through the whole package before it goes bad. Especially fresh ones. We used to grow lovely raspberries, but those plants only last so long.

  24. I've never been a big fan of blueberries. I'll eat them here and there, but it's not something I buy often. Now strawberries are my favorite!
