Blueberries are potent antioxidants. Antioxidants help neutralize harmful by-products of metabolism called free radicals that can lead to a range of age-related diseases. When compared to other fresh fruits and vegetables, blueberries have the highest level of antioxidant activities and exhibit a broad spectrum of related health benefits.
Research shows that anthocyanins, a group of pigments formed in the cells of plants which produce their deep colours, help maintain human health by promoting vision, regulating blood glucose levels, improving circulation, and delaying the effects of aging, particularly memory loss and motor skills.
Blueberry 36:1 Concentrate supports healthy cholesterol levels and blood pressure. Its high ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) score indicates that blueberry is effective in fighting the free radicals that accelerate disease and aging.
ORAC is a well recognized laboratory test used to measure the antioxidant potential of food through its ability to stabilize a known concentration of free radicals. High ORAC scores indicate strong antioxidant capabilities.
