Antioxidants in Blueberries

Alaskan blue berries are found to be extra special comparative to blueberries cultivated in the lower 48. Alaskan blue berries were found to have “3 to 5 times higher” higher levels of antioxidants then their southern cousin. Antioxidants have gone through the nutritional “hype” on weather or not you want a lot of them in your body or not, but if you need them, stepping right out your back door is the best place to look!  LF Fairbanks
