Blueberries have been found to improve gut health and reduce chronic inflammation, according to a study published in the Journal of Nutrition.Blueberries are rich in anthocyanins that contain anti-inflammatory properties and may improve the gut microbiota.

In conducting their study, the research team fed male mice with low-fat, high-fat, or high-fat and blueberry powder diets for eight weeks.
