Blueberry is a perennial flowering plant, whose indigo-colored berries are primarily used as a popular food. The berries possess anthocyanins, which are natural pigments that have antioxidant properties.
Blueberry is used in health supplements today as a superfood, rich in antioxidants that combat free radicals, which are chemicals that appear in the body. It is also often used to support the nervous system and cognition.
