Blueberries: Good for your gums and teeth!

Tin pail of blueberries

Did you know that blueberries have many natural health properties?

A recent study published in The Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry found that the naturally occurring polyphenols in blueberries actually act as an anti-bacterial agent against mouth specific bacteria (Fusobacterium nucleatum) found in gum disease. In addition, blueberries are known to be a natural anti-inflammatory.

What does this mean?

It means blueberries could protect your gums and bone from gum/periodontal disease! Pretty neat stuff!
