Webber Naturals Blueberry Extract 500mg 200 Liguid Softgel :When compared to other fresh fruits and vegetables, blueberries had the highest levels of antioxidant activity and were shown to exhibit a broad spectrum of health benefits. This Blueberry 36:1 Concentrate is a superior source of phytochemical antioxidants. Anthocyanins are the phytochemicals that impart the deep blue colour to blueberries and scavenge free radicals. Free radical damage is linked to aging and risk for degenerative diseases. Research shows that blueberry anthocyanins contribute to healthier vision, regulation of blood glucose levels, improved circulation, as well as slowing the effects of aging, such as loss of memory and motor skills.
Research in brief
Fruits and vegetables are rich in essential vitamins, minerals, fibre, and many kinds of disease-fighting phytochemicals. Blueberries have been identified as a superior source of phytochemical antioxidants. Compared to other fresh fruits and vegetables, blueberries have one of the highest levels of antioxidant activity and exhibit broad spectrum health benefits.
Anthocyanins are the phytochemicals that impart the deep blue colour to blueberries and that make blueberries super disease fighters. Anthocyanins scavenge and trap oxidizing toxic by-products of metabolism, commonly called free radicals. Free radicals are like fiery embers that pop from a fireplace on to the carpet causing damage. Free radicals compromise the busy chemistry of life and health by destroying cell parts by oxidizing them, including our genes (our DNA). Accumulated gene mutations caused by free radical action are a central part of why we age and develop age-related cancers, heart disease, and neurological problems. Anthocyanins provide powerful antioxidant protection against free radical damage.
Research shows that the antioxiant effects of anthocyanins contributes to healthier vision, regulation of blood glucose levels, blood circulation, and provides valuable risk reduction for certain types of cancers, and delays the effects of aging, including loss of memory and motor skills. Another blueberry benefit not related to its antioxidant effect is the ability of blueberries to help prevent urinary tract infections. Something in the blueberries prevents adherence of bacteria to the bladder wall and the urethra, preventing colonization.
Blueberry 36:1 Concentrate 500mg from webber naturals® is ideal for everyone and it is the most convenient way to take advantage of the broad spectrum of health benefits that blueberries offer.
