Blueberries are not very common on Spanish tables. Maybe you’ve found it garnishing a dessert or camouflaged in a “detox” smoothie. Maybe you bought yourself a jam at the supermarket to try a new flavor. And if you want them fresh, they can be purchased in small boxes in some establishments, at a price that makes them closer to a gourmet product.
But the most interesting thing about these berries, blue and red, is that they are the protagonists of numerous studies, which have linked their intake with potential health benefits for their antibacterial and anti-aging capacity (they are rich in antioxidants in the form of vitamin C and flavonoids). From its use to keep urine infections at bay to its potential to reduce the risk of hypertension, gingivitis, erectile dysfunction and cancer.
