Research at Tufts University has uncovered the anti-aging powers of blueberries and other dark colored fruits and vegetables.

James Joseph, a nutrition researcher at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts and author of “The Color Code” wrote, “Many of the ailments that we’ve come to fear – cancer, heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis among others – are not inevitable at all, by fortifying our diets with colorful fruits and vegetables, we may prevent many of these diseases from striking in the first place.”
In 1999, Joseph first reported blueberries can help slow memory loss and improve coordination, thanks to the antioxidants that give them their dark blue color. Improvements in balance were also significant.

According to the Blueberry council, http://blueberrycouncil.org/nutrition.php ,blueberries are an excellent source of vitamin C. A one cup serving provides 14mg or almost 25 percent of the daily requirement. They are also a good source of dietary fiber and manganese.
Blueberries rank among the highest on per serving basis of antioxidants with 6,552 micromoles. Substances called polyphenols give blueberries their blue hue and are the major contributors to the antioxidant activity of blueberries.
