Blueberry Extract

Blueberry Extract

Blueberries are one of the most potent sources of natural antioxidants, including anthocyanins and phenolic compounds. Researchers have shown that blueberries have strong potential for reducing the risk of degenerative diseases, including cancer, chronic inflammation, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. Wild blueberries are slightly smaller and more nutrient rich than commercially harvested crops.

SYNONYMS:
Wild Blueberry Extract
