ABSTRACT

Modern science has made much progress in discovering the benefits of specific compounds found in fruits and vegetables. Nutrient-dense “superplants” go a step further and are packed with complex blends of phytonutrients that work together to promote optimal health. One such “superfruit” is the blueberry, which contains a powerhouse of nutrients that may defend the body against the ravages of aging and disease. Blueberries are a nutrient rich fruit containing antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds particularly Anthocyanins, Proanthocyanins, Flavanols and Tannins that are reported to be effective in reducing cholesterol thereby reducing the risks of cardiovascular diseases. Anthocyanins and Ellagic acid are particularly responsible for fighting against cancer. Blueberry consumption is also associated with alleviating the cognitive decline seen in Alzheimer’s patients, lowering the severity of stroke damage exhibiting immense potential as a brain superfood. Moreover, blueberries contain compounds that prevent the adhesion of bacteria responsible for urinary tract infections and eye infections, act as antidiabetic, antiallergic, antimicrobial and antiproliferative. This tiny superfruit boosts up immunity helps in several other infections too. Unlocking the mystery of how such a diminutive fruit is capable of working so many miracles has spawned a frenzy of scientific investigation.

Keywords: Anthocyanidins, Flavonoids, Pterostilbene, Polyphenols.
