What are antioxidants?
Antioxidants are a broad term used to describe a food that can help protect the body from damage.
Antioxidants can be found in the vitamins of the actual food, or even the coloring. In general, the deeper the color, the higher the antioxidant content. Additionally, there are other fruits and vegetables which contain antioxidants, such as apples and grapes.
Fiber-rich berries have the added benefit of satisfying someone's sweet tooth without any added sugars. Adding blueberries and other antioxidant-rich fruits will help reduce blood sugar while keeping sugar cravings at bay. Patients with diabetes should generally stay away from refined sugars and processed carbs to improve glucose control
