Blueberry General Information
Northern Highbush Blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum) is a species of blueberry native to Eastern North America. It is a deciduous shrub that is often found in dense thickets. The leaves are dark green and glossy. The flowers are white and bell shaped. Centuries ago, Native Americans used Blueberry tea as an antispasmodic for cramps, hiccups, colic, cholera morbus (severe gastroenteritis), epilepsy and hysterics. Many species of Vaccinium have a long history of use for medicinal purposes. All parts of the plant have been used with the fruit being favored in Europe, while the leaves, stems and bark are more widely used by Native Americans. Native American women used Blueberries to ease childbirth during labor and also used the tea. They ate the berries to treat scurvy, diarrhea, dropsy, and bilious fevers. Chippewa Indians dried the berries and placed them on hot stones and inhaled the fumes to drive out madness. Blueberries are a wonderful source of vitamin C, iron, and dietary fiber. Blueberries also contain carbohydrates, which help prevent coliform (harmful) bacteria from adhering to the walls of the bladder and urethra, in the same way as cranberries. The attachment of harmful bacteria to organ walls is how an infection begins. Blueberry root has diuretic, astringent, and antispasmodic properties.

Blueberry Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Blueberries has a laxative effect, but this fruit also cleanses the blood, and improves circulation and visual acuity. It is possible they may also protect against cataracts and glaucoma. Preliminary studies have shown Blueberries to be effective in the treatment of varicose veins, hemorrhoids, and peptic ulcers. This fruit is also used to reduce fever and hot agues (fit of shivering). The leaves of this fruit are used to help regulate blood sugar in borderline diabetes and hypoglycemia. There is some evidence to suggest that Blueberries can help relieve symptoms of multiple sclerosis. Here are some of the helpful areas that Blueberries can assist in; this information comes from the US Highbush Blueberry Council:
  • Antioxidants Antioxidants help neutralize harmful by products of metabolism called "free radicals" that can lead to cancer and other age related diseases. Anthocyanin (the pigment that makes blueberries blue) is thought to be responsible.

  • Anti Aging Neuroscientists have done research on the antioxidants and found that Blueberries are very helpful with our aging process.

  • Disease Prevention This fruit is thought to reduce the build up of "bad" cholesterol that contributes to cardiovascular disease and stroke. The scientists at the University of California at Davis did this research. Antioxidants were also thought to be the main component.

  • Urinary Tract Infections Blueberries appear to work by preventing bacteria from attaching to the cells that line the walls of the urinary tract. The researchers at Rutgers University in New Jersey Have identified the compound that helps with this.

  • Eyesight There have been a number of studies in Europe that have documented the relationship with Blueberries and Eyesight. This is thought to occur because the Anthocyanin in the blue pigment helps ease eye fatigue.
Based on data from the USDA Human nutrition Research Center on Aging (Boston, MA), blueberries are among the fruits with highest antioxidant activity. Using a test called ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity), researchers have shown that a serving of fresh Blueberries provides more antioxidant activity than many other fresh fruits and vegetables.
