Did you know blueberries help with muscle soreness?
Why? To make a long answer short, oxidative stress causes muscle soreness and eccentric (muscle contractions that lengthen the muscle fibers) exercises cause oxidative stress. Blueberries contain polyphenols (a powerful antioxidant) which help to reduce oxidative stress and prevent cell damage. If you aren’t already, add a handful of blueberries to your morning breakfast or smoothie!
