The brilliant blueberry - why you should give it a try!
We love the taste of blueberries - and we hope you do too!
These moreish morsels just have such an interesting flavour that’s unique in the fruit world.
Since we enjoy the odd blueberry or two, it’s a good job these critters have such a good health reputation!
They’ve got some great nutrients going on in them, and they can be used for a huge number of different things - besides simply being nibbled on their own, of course, which they’re great for!
Blueberry action in the kitchen
One great thing about blueberries is you can bring them out in such a range of situations.
For example, if you fancy a smoothie these can be a wonderful addition, partly because of their flavour, and also because of the exciting colour they will create!
We also like the fact that they’re a no-fuss fruit. When you buy a pack of berries, you can just rinse some, throw them into the smoothie makers and you’re done!
For the same reason, they’re great when you want a little extra fruit - think on top of cereal, or when you want to make some calcium-boasting natural yogurt that bit more exciting.
We think they’re brilliant in fruit salads too, and those are just some of the options when it comes to preparing these sweet little treats!
Healthy living treat
Blueberries are just one of those foods that you hear talked about a lot in relation to healthy living.
Of course variety is a big buzzword of healthy eating, but blueberries are one food which could definitely be a fantastic part of that variety.
You won’t be surprised to hear that, like lots of our fave fruits, they boast Vitamin C among their nutrients.
Vitamin C has to be one of the most discussed vitamins out there, and its list of benefits is substantial. For example, it plays a part in helping the immune system do its job.
And another great thing about blueberries is that they don’t contain very much fat or calories, which also helps to make them a healthy choice. They’ve also got fibre in them.
This fantastic food is good when it comes to salt, too, in the sense that blueberries have little of this in them, and we all want to avoid having too much of it!
We all seem to be after antioxidants these days, too, and blueberries boast these.
So hopefully you’ll be inspired by our little overview of these brill berries, and want to give them a go!
Luckily, they’re very easy to get hold of and, like we say, unlike some fruits where preparation might seem like a chore, they take next to no effort before they’re ready to pop in your mouth - or whatever mouth-watering treat you’re creating with them!
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
