Four Ways Blue Berries Benefit Your Weight Loss Efforts


Blueberries for Weight Loss

Blue berries are an all-time favorite snack - and with good reason. In fact, besides their amazing taste, they're packed with healthy benefits. Here four ways these tangy natural treats can help boost your weight loss efforts.

  1. Blue berries deliver on nutrients without packing on calories: They're rich in a slew of nutrients including vitamins C and E, potassium, riboflavin, niacin, folate, iron, magnesium, manganese and antioxidants. Yet, they're low in calories and free of fat, cholesterol or sodium.
  2. Blue berries pack fat-burning catechins: Blue berries are rich in catechins, natural antioxidants that stimulate fat-burning genes in abdominal fat cells. In a recent study, Tufts University researchers found that catechins can increase the rate of abdominal fat loss by approximately 77 percent and double your total weight loss.
  3. Blue berries aid in digestion: Blueberries are rich ininsoluble fiber, which helps to speed up the digestive process, quickly eliminating waste from the body.
  4. Blue berries trigger dopamine production: Dopamine is a natural "feel-good" neurotransmitter that can boost your mood and motivate you to maintain an active lifestyle. And, it's a natural appetite suppressant.

What's more - Blueberries also are filled with anti-aging free radicals; disease-preventing proanthycyanidins and phytonutrients; and salicylic acid, a natural version of aspirin that helps to thin the blood and reduce pain.
