Constipation Diarrhea Remedy

Gosh, the title of today’s entry sounds like a contradiction, doesn’t it?

Well, in reality, the lowly blueberry can serve as a remedy for both constipation and diarrhea.

And those aren’t the only uses for the tasty and life-enhancing blueberry.

You see, the Swedes have used blueberries as a diarrhea remedy for ages.

On the other hand, so to speak, if constipation has you down, you should try eating some blueberries. German scientists have noted that fresh blueberries produce a laxative effect in some individuals.

Since blueberries also kill infectious germs, you’ll find a lot of skiers on the slopes in Europe sipping blueberry soup as a cold remedy.

Did you know that some bacteria and viruses can be killed by the high concentrations of some compounds in blueberries? Well, in tests several years ago in Canada, crushed blueberries destroyed nearly 100% of polio viruses within 24 hours. (source The Food Pharmacy, Jean Carpenter).

Regular consumption of blueberries may also contribute to

  • reversing the aging process
  • protecting the body from stress
  • providing some anti-cancer benefits
  • preventing weakening eyesight
  • helping urinary tract infections.

Best of all, blueberries are loaded with antioxidants.

And, hey, blueberries don’t cost an arm and a leg, either, and can be purchased frozen any time of the year.
