What is the benefit of wild blueberry?
Recent discoveries attribute potential health benefits to antioxidants such as anthocyanin, anti-inflammatory and other natural compounds found in the deep blue pigment of Wild Blueberries.
Vision Health(University of Guelph Ontario, Canada, Ph D. Kay CD, Ph D.Holub BJ)
Research around the world has indicated that the anthocyanin content in blueberries may improve night vision and prevent tired eyes.
Cancer Prevention (Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. 2004; 52(21):6433-6442)
Studies conducted by Mary Ann Lila, Ph.D., Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences, University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign, indicate that compounds in Wild Blueberries may be effective inhibitors of both the initiation and promotion stages of cancer.
Healthy Aging (Nutritional Neuroscience. 2003; 11(4):172-184)
James Joseph, Ph.D., and his team at the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging in Boston report that a diet of blueberries may improve motor skills and reverse the short-term memory loss that comes with aging and age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
Anti-Inflammatory Benefits (Nutritional Neuroscience. 2008; 11(4):172-182)
Dr. James Joseph, Ph. D., from the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging has been studying the anti-inflammatory potential of the polyphenols in blueberries. The polyphenols in blueberry appear to inhibit the production of inflammatory mediators.
Protection Against Stroke
New research shows that blueberries may support cardiovascular health. A research team at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada led by Wilhelmina Kalt, Ph.D., found that blueberry supplementation reduced plasma cholesterol levels.
British Journal of Nutrition. 2008; 100(1): 70-78
Blueberries may reduce the build up of so called “bad” cholesterol that contributes to cardiovascular disease and stroke, according to scientists at the University of California at Davis. Antioxidants are believed to be the active component.
USDA Agricultural Research Service. July 2004; Food Navigator. August 2004
New research by Dorothy Klimis-Zacas, Ph.D., and her team at the University of Maine, Orono, concludes that a diet of Wild Blueberries may reduce risk from cardiovascular disease.
Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry, 2006 17(2): 109-116
Urinary Tract Health (Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. 52(21))
At the Rutgers University Blueberry Cranberry Research Center, Amy Howell, Ph.D., showed that blueberries, like cranberries, contain compounds that prevent the bacteria responsible for urinary tract infections from attaching to the bladder wall.
Antioxidant Activity (Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. 2008; 56(18))
Cellular Antioxidant Activity New research shows that Wild Blueberries have the highest cellular antioxidant activity of selected fruits tested. Antioxidant have been linked with anti-aging, anti-cancer and heart-health benefits.
Fighting Oxidative Stress (Journal of American College of Nutrition. 2007;26(2):170)
USDA scientists recently concluded that eating wild blueberries and other antioxidant-rich food at every meal helps prevent oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is linked to chronic diseases and aging.
What are the benefits of flaxseed oil?
- Omega 3
Udo Erasmus, PH.D., the world expert on oils in nutrition, states that a diet deficient in Omega 3 may result in a host of conditions including : heart attack, stroke, or embolism, arthritis, inflammatory conditions, auto immune problems, week bones, low energy, dry skin, overweight, obesity, type ll diabetes, depression, poor focus, hormone imbalance, poor healing mental fatigue, poor ability to deal with stress, and symptoms of mental illness(including schizophrenia bipolar, obssessiv-compulsive, anxiety) and Alzheimer’s
- Omega 6
*Reduces the aches and pains of rheumatoid arthritis
*Relives the discomfort of PMS, endometriosis, and fibrocystic breasts
*Reduces the symptoms of eczema and psoriasis
*Clears up acne and rosacea
*Prevents and improves diabetic neuropathy
*Aids in cancer treatment
- Omega 9
*Lowers cholesterol levels, thereby reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease
*Reduces atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries)
*Reduces insulin resistance, thereby improves glucose(blood sugar) maintenance
*Improves immune function
*Provides protecting against certain types of cancer.
It may play a role in the prevention of cancer.
