The Power of the Blueberry

March is National Nutrition Month, and this month we are taking a look at the mighty blueberry. Blueberries are not only delicious but are packed with nutrients that offer numerous health benefits

It can be challenging to consume enough blueberries to fully reap their advantages and the bioavailability of these beneficial compounds may vary between fresh blueberries and supplements, which is why we include Blueberry Plus in our daily nutraceutical regime. Blueberry Plus is a concentrated form of blueberry that provides a convenient way to boost the intake of these beneficial compounds. Why Blueberry Plus? Blueberries are rich in compounds called anthocyanins, which have been found to support cardiovascular health. They may lower blood pressure and improve both glycemic control and cholesterol levels, protect the liver and reduce liver fat buildup. High blood pressure is a major risk factor for heart disease, so consuming blueberry supplements may assist with blood pressure and therefore the risk of cardiovascular problems like heart disease and stroke. Blueberries are packed with antioxidants. Oxidative stress occurs when there is an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in the body. The antioxidants in Blueberry Plus may assist in the reduction of free radicals and oxidative stress. This can help reduce DNA damage. Blueberry supplements have been found to reduce cognitive decline and improve memory. The antioxidants in blueberries may help enhance brain health by lowering inflammation and oxidative stress in the brain. Regular consumption of blueberry supplements seem to assist with learning ability, concentration, and overall brain function, and assist in reducing the risk of neurodegenerative disorders like dementia including Alzheimer’s disease. Blueberry supplements offer a convenient way to increase your intake of these nutritious berries. They provide a wide range of health benefits, including antioxidant protection, improved cognitive function, heart and liver support, anti-inflammatory effects, and essential vitamins and minerals to enhance your overall well-being.
