There’s plenty of benefits to eating blueberries regularly. These little berries are packed with iron, zinc, calcium, vitamin K, so they are great for keeping your bones strong. Blueberries are also great for your heart, blood pressure, and digestive system. One of my favorite perks of this fruit, and the reason I eat blueberries so often is that they’re great for your skin. This tiny fruit is actually great for collagen.
