Vaccinium Cyanococcus / Blueberries

blueberrysmoothie_51raw

Vaccinium Cyanococcus otherwise known as blueberries, are part of the vaccinium genus. Notice the similarity between the words vaccinium and vaccine. This may be due to the fact that blueberries and other berries in the vaccinium family contain unique phytonutrients which can be found in our own blood for up to 12 months. 
This makes preventing winter colds too easy, this summer eat as many blueberries, bilberries, cranberries and gooseberries as you can, and enjoy them knowing that they are working to help your immunity even throughout winter.
