Blueberries
Among the highest anti-oxidant value fruits. The ORAC value of 100-g of fresh blueberries is 5562 TE (Trolex equivalents). Their antioxidant value is largely derived from poly-phenolic anthocyanidin compounds such as chlorogenic acid, tannins, myricetin, quercetin and kaempferol. In addition, these berries have other flavonoid anti-oxidants such as caroteneβ, lutien and zeaxanthin. The phyto-chemical compounds in the blueberries help rid the body of harmful oxygen-derived free radicals, and protects the body from cancers, aging, degenerative diseases, and infections.

Fresh berries contain small amounts of vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamin E. These vitamins make potent lipid-soluble anti-oxidants, and help limit free radical-mediated injuries to the body. The berries contain small amounts of the B-complex group of vitamins such as niacin, pyridoxine, folates and pantothenic acid.
