Blueberries are so small but are packed with so much goodness. They are not too sweet but so flavorful that you can easily end up eating a whole pint without noticing it. Blueberries contain a ton of water and dietary fiber. As such consuming them on a regular basis can help your body prevent constipation and maintain a healthy digestive tract. Consuming enough fiber, both soluble and insoluble, has been shown to promote regular bowel movement in your body, a process which is critical in ensuring your body’s daily excretion of toxins through bile and stool. The positive side effects of a healthy gut and bowel system is a healthy immune system.  Who doesn’t want that? According to other published studies, an adequately high intake of fiber has also been shown to significantly lower your risk of developing coronary heart disease, stroke, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and certain gastrointestinal diseases.
Bananas are also nutrient powerhouses. They are very rich in potassium and can help to keep your sodium levels and blood pressure in check. Bananas also contain a ton of other vitamins and minerals that can help your body prevent asthma, certain types of cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and digestive problems. The high vitamin C content in bananas has been shown to help your body combat the formation of free radicals that can cause cell mutation (i.e. cancer). The high dietary fiber content in bananas have also been shown to be beneficial in helping lower your risk for colorectal cancer because it helps promote healthy bowel movement for your body. Last but not least, bananas also contain tryptophan, an amino acid that has been studied and shown to be beneficial to helping you preserve your memory and boosting your mood.
