A Healthy Choice
Fruits and vegetables are a healthy food choice packed with a wide range of nutrients vital for good health. Research shows that people who eat more fruits and vegetables as part of an overall healthy diet may have a lower risk of some chronic diseases.
Fruits provide essential nutrients that we need including potassium, dietary fiber, vitamin C, folate (folic acid) and phytonutrients. In the research studying the benefits of fruits, wild blueberries have emerged as a leader in total antioxidant capacity. Research is ongoing in a number of areas including brain aging and Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, eye health and metabolic syndrome.
