WHICH BERRY HELPS YOU SEE IN THE DARK?
Night vision improves when you regularly eat this berry, studies show. Towards the top of the list of super fruits and berries, weak eyesight can be enhanced by just enjoying a handful of blueberries each day.
Organic blueberry juice has the same qualities as the fresh berry off the vine. There are actually a number of amazing health benefits from eating blueberries such as improved brain function, heart health, and lowering of inflammation in the body.
But specifically the improved eyesight “caught our eye”. As we age, night vision does degrade and if you enjoy hunting then your eyesight is of extreme importance.
From NaturalNews.com here is a brief description of some of the benefits o blueberries:
Blueberries can also help protect against the formation of heart disease. Blueberry anthocyanins have been observed to improve the elasticity of blood vessels, increasing blood flow and protecting against clotting. Blueberries also help inhibit the buildup of “bad” cholesterol, prevent the buildup of arterial plaque, and decrease the “stickiness” of blood platelets.
Some of the biggest breakthroughs in blueberry science involve the fruit’s anti-aging properties, which are believed to be mostly due to their rich antioxidant content. Not only do blueberries help protect the brain against age-related decline, but they also help protect the central nervous system, increasing cell membrane fluidity while reducing levels of inflammatory compounds.
