    dried blueberries

    Anti-oxidants
    The highest anti-oxidant capacity of
    all fresh fruit: Anthocyanin, vitamin C,
    B complex, vitamin E, vitamin A, copper
    (a very effective immune builder and
    anti-bacterial), selenium, zinc, iron
    (promotes immunity by raising haemoglobin
    and oxygen concentration in blood).
    The 5 Best Anti-oxidant-rich Foods
    (Canadian Living magazine) – as usual, blueberries show up top of the list.
     
    Anti-oxidants neutralize free radicals which can affect disease and aging in the body, in the process boosting up your immune system and preventing infections. Blueberries bring you the brightest ray of hope, as they are laden with anti-oxidants and rank # 1 in the world of anti-oxidants. This is mainly due to the presence of Anthocyanin, a pigment responsible for the blue color of the blue berries. The abundance of vitamin-C is a big factor for this as well.

    B Complex
    In addition to being potent anti-oxidants (especially helpful in boosting the immune system), B-complex vitamins provide a host of benefits of their own. These include raising metabolism, which can help with weight loss. B complex can also help with maintaining skin and muscle tissue, and help people better fight off illnesses by boosting the immune system.
     
    There’s been much talk about how B Complex supplements may help promote calmer mood, make you more capable of handling stress, and may slightly reduce the risk of heart disease, possibly due to the complex’s ability to affect mood and stress. People who suffer from mood disorders or premenstrual dysmorphic disorder, may benefit from adding B complex to their diets in combination with medication and therapy to treat these conditions.
     
    The B-complex vitamins are essential to mental and emotional well-being. Deficiencies can lead to fatigue, depression, irritability, anxiety, and even thoughts of suicide. Deficiencies can also cause memory problems, loss of appetite, insomnia, and gastrointestinal disorders. Naturally a suitable and adequate source of B complex vitamins can potentially reduce or eliminate any or all of these symptoms of deficiency.
