A healthy body and mind starts from a healthy microbiome and a healthy gut. It is vital to pay attention to the health of your digestive system. Berries play a major role in gut health thanks to their high fibre and antioxidant content. In terms of nutritional value, wild blueberries are a real superfood. They are low in calories on the one hand, but on the other, they are enormously nutrient-dense and full of prebiotic fibre, all of which combine to look after your gut health and microbiome.

So how can you support your gut, microbiome and gut health with wild blueberries? What active ingredients does wild blueberry have for our gut?


Wild blueberry is a fibre-rich berry and fibre is essential for the health of the microbiome. In order for the digestive system to function normally and for the body to fight off disease, humans need adequate amounts of fibre every day. For example, a diet rich in fibre can help lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of diabetes.

Fibre helps carbohydrates to be absorbed slowly – thereby preventing blood sugar from rising quickly and helping to keep you feeling full. In addition, fibre has the ability to absorb water very easily and thus expand in the stomach. Fibre also plays an important role in metabolism by helping to remove waste products, toxins and bad cholesterol from the intestines and preventing constipation.

Studies have found that modern Western dietary habits (excessive consumption of animal and refined cereal products and sugar) cause fibre deficiency in humans. Constipation is one of the most common signs of low fibre intake (as well as low water intake). High cholesterol levels and obesity can also develop from a long diet low in fibre.

An adult person should eat around 25-35g of fibre per day. For example, oatmeal contains 12g of fibre per 100g, dried blueberries 10g, cashew 8g and dried bananas 7.5g.

Prebiotic berries

Wild blueberries are prebiotic in nature, which is food for the good bacteria (probiotics) that live in the microbiome. Therefore, eating wild blueberries directly contributes to the creation of good bacteria in your microbiome, which in turn contributes to your normal digestion and intestinal health. Because of their prebiotic content, wild blueberries can help as a first aid to relieve stomach problems and inflammation in the body.

Rich in antioxidants

The role of antioxidants in the health of the microbiome is also very important as they fight off free radicals and help to create balance in the body. Examples of antioxidants found in wild blueberries include vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B9, manganese and zinc. A balance between antioxidants and free radicals is needed to keep the body healthy. Free radicals are produced, for example, by alcohol and tobacco consumption, stress, environmental toxins and breathing polluted air. A healthy diet also plays an important role in maintaining balance.

When the body produces more free radicals than antioxidants, these radicals attack and damage body cells. In the big picture, free radicals damage cellular DNA and thereby accelerate ageing, weaken the immune system and allow diseases to gain easier access.

Antioxidants regulate gut microflora. For example, they remove harmful toxic substances from the gut, lower cholesterol levels and activate the body’s defences against all kinds of pathogens.

Low calories

Wild blueberries are low in calories, high in fibre, antioxidants and chemical elements directly linked to a strong metabolism and optimal weight. Thanks to their high fibre content, adding wild blueberries to your diet helps keep you feeling full, meaning you’ll feel less tempted to reach for something unhealthy. Blueberries may be low in calories, but they’re packed with whole-food nutrients that add considerable variety to the big picture.

Wild blueberries are a rich source of vitamins

Wild blueberries are packed with a huge amount of vitamins and minerals that play a vital role in the functioning of your body. For example:

– Vitamin A (for strengthening the immune system and eye health).

– Vitamin B6 (for the prevention of cardiovascular disease).

– Vitamin C (for strengthening the immune system)

– Vitamin K (for heart and bone health)

– Folate (for brain metabolism, production of hydrochloric acid)

– Manganese (for metabolism)

– Copper (to strengthen the immune system)

– Zinc (to strengthen the immune system)

– Potassium (for the normal functioning of the body)
