 Blueberries May Help Weight Management
A new study with blueberries1 shows they can have a direct effect on white adipose tissue, cutting fat cell numbers and the amount of fat in cells. While this is a cell/tissue study it is still interesting because it lends proof to the notion that diets high in polyphenols from fruits have multiple benefits to health including weight loss.

Blueberries are widely studied for their protection to your brain and cardiovascular system. Therefore, helping with weight is no stretch of their potential benefits. They are one of the preferred fruits for your diet. There are no reports of any adverse affects of excessive blueberry consumption!
