Blueberries and strawberries are particularly rich in anthocyanins, which is where they get their vibrant red and blue colors and antioxidant properties. Anthocyanins benefit the heart by helping to lower blood pressure and improve blood vessel function. In fact, one Harvard study found that three or more servings of blueberries or strawberries each week can lead to improved heart health. Get a few of this week’s servings in with these easy berry bites! You can even pick your own berries at a local farm.
