Four Ways Blueberries Can Help you Lose Weight


Blog Image: Four Ways Blueberries Can Help you Lose Weight

Blueberries are a tangy, delicious favorite treat. And as it turns out, they're also a proven weight loss aid with a plethora of additional health benefits. Here are just a few reasons to include them in your daily nutritional plan.

 

  1. One word - Catechins: This natural antioxidant helps to kick start fat-burning genes in abdominal fat cells, aiding in weight loss, particularly in the belly. In one study by Tufts University, researchers found that ingesting catechins can boost the rate of abdominal fat loss by upward of 77 percent and double total weight loss.

  2. Big on nutrients, small on calories: Blueberries are a nutritional powerhouse packed with vitamins C and E, potassium, riboflavin, niacin, folate, iron, magnesium, manganese and antioxidants. Yet, they're low in calories. A full cup has just 85 calories and no fat, cholesterol or sodium.

  3. Digestive aid: Blueberries are a source of insoluble fiber, which helps to speed up the digestive process.

  4. Dopamine: This natural "feel-good" neurotransmitter is a known mood-booster, which can go a long way in motivating you to maintain an active lifestyle. Plus, it helps to control your appetite.

 

That's not all. Blueberries also pack 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. And, they're delicious, to boot.
