known for it antioxidant properties are said to have the benefits of combating aging, cancer, cholesterol and promoting heart health.
Adults need between 8-11,000 antioxidant units per day (measured as ORAC units*)
Refer to this table:
Assuming blueberries are your sole source of antioxidant units, you will need about 114 g to meet minimum requirements. You can get that in less than 1 cup of blueberries.
There are no magical health benefits to maximize. Superfoods don’t exist. Whether it’s blueberries or whatever the current culinary infatuation, the individual food doesn’t matter. Only your overall diet matters.
Eat a variety of foods, mostly plants, not to much or too little. Blueberries can be a part of that as long as you keep it moderate.

A2A I think the greatest benefits are from eating with the seasons/eat when things are ripe and you can get them fresh. During blueberry season, I eat them throughout the day (you might eat more or less, there is no formula). When other things are fresh, raw, and ripe eat them. Our bodies benefit from a diversity of fresh foods.
Blueberries provide tremendous health benefits from their antioxidants, yet I wouldn’t say a specific number of cups is what you need to realize the benefits. Rather, add a few to a smoothie or cup of yogurt, eat some in a fruit salad with other fruit (such as watermelon, mango, raspberries, banana, grapes), make blueberry muffins or pie or crisp. You can even add blueberries to pancakes or top waffles with them.
Since they’re sweet and delicious and oh, so nutritious, it’s more the many ways you can eat blueberries that counts. Any way you do it, you’ll be getting lots of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
Plus, your daily food intake will be varied and you won’t get bored.

Blueberries are the world’s healthiest foods. Only blueberry benefits can be one of the most miraculous cures to your health. The nutritious value attached to this pretty little fruit makes it a superfood. You will be absolutely surprised to know the benefits of blueberries. They are highly beneficial for bones, diabetes, blood pressure and can even cure a lot of heart problems. No matter in whichever form you consume a blueberry, it remains absolutely healthy in every way.
All kidding aside, nothing good. You’ll lose anywhere from 5 to 10 lbs after 10–12 days of eating nothing but blueberries, which would be great, since they’re packed with fiber and provide calories for glucose absorption, but your body would begin to starve for other nutrients, such as protein and vitamin D. After 20 days you’ll likely suffer from fatigue, diarrhea, and jaundice. After a few months your organs will begin to fail and tissues will rapidly break down. The end won’t be long after that unless you’re rushed to a hospital.
No, you won’t blow up into a giant blueberry like Violet Beauregard in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, I promise.
Best answer below: about a cup. Best add-on: eat with a variety of other fruits. Don’t get caught up in some magic bullet theory (it’s been done before). A good, healthy diet (not a book title diet for weight loss) with a variety of good foods will do wonders for you. You get more essential vitamins, minerals, and required nutrients that way and as long as you maintain the perspective that a variety of good foods will eliminate your need for ever thinking about the total antioxidants again.
The only proven things blue berries do is lower your blood pressure because they contain nitrates. I believe the current consensus is 2–3 cups per day for that effect.
A cup a day will be plenty but you should also eat other fruits . NO fruits are magical , just the flavor . Everything is in moderation no matter what it is , good or bad . A apple a day , a banana day they are all good for us .
