All about blueberry > Health and nutrition

The blueberry contains oxalic, malic and citric acids that endow it with various properties: antiseptic, disinfectant, mineralizer and ophthalmic (blueberry water compresses sooth irritated eyes.) In some places blueberries have been nicknamed “the vision fruit.” And it is because the blueberry is blue that it is such a good source of polyphenols: up to 280 mg per 100 g of fruit! These phenolic acids with antioxidant properties trap free radicals and diminish the risk of cancer and cardiovascular problems.
