Blueberries are always considered powerful antioxidant and are very useful to prevent cystitis and bacterial infections.
The latter are very frequent above all in women and one out of four women of childbearing potential (20-50 years old) suffers in particular from urinary tract infections.
This infection tipology can be very dangerous and can degenerate into very serious kidney infections.
Blueberries help to prevent these infections thanks to the active substance called proanthocyanidins, which hinders the bacteria to bind to the urinary bladder wall.
Pay attention not to take blueberry juice and think that it has the same efficiency because it is not true. That is what Timothy Boone, president of the Urology Department of Huston Methodist Hopital in the United States, affirms.
