Blueberries may contain more antioxidants than any other fruit or vegetable.

The most powerful antioxidants in blueberries are anthocyanins, phytochemicals that belong to the flavonoid family.

Anthocyanins limit free-radical damage linked to heart disease and cancer.

Anthocyanins may boost brainpower—at least in rats.

In a study of rats fed blueberry extract for nine weeks show, the older rats outperformed a control group in mazes and in balancing on rotating logs. Aging rats ate a blueberry-enriched diet for four months, they performed as well in memory tests as younger rats.
