Wild Blueberry Smoothie
by Anthony William/Medical Medium
Wild, lowbush blueberries are naturally occurring berries that have been growing in Maine, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island for more than 10,000 years. They are smaller in size than planted blueberries and a more concentrated source of nutrition and antioxidants.
Wild Blueberries have survived in the acidic soil and challenging winters in the northern climate for many thousands of years and those natural challenges make them special. Their ability to adapt to harsh environments gives them genetic strength, which we also benefit from when we consume them.
Wild Blueberries are the ultimate antioxidant superfruit and explode with immune strengthening vitamins and minerals that nourish body and soul. Their powerful antioxidants and polyphenols are known to protect the body from free radical damage, benefit cognitive and neurological health, support the cardiovascular system, and help reduce inflammation.
Wild blueberries can be enjoyed fresh or frozen. They are wonderful eaten alone, with other fruits, or added to smoothies like in this recipe, or salads. The most convenient way to enjoy wild blueberries is to buy them frozen from your local supermarket or health food store.
