Life Extension Blueberry Extract, 60 vegetarian capsules, Item# 01214
Blueberry anthocyanins are considered nature's most potent antioxidants and have demonstrated properties that extend well beyond suppressing free radicals.
When researchers analyzed fruits and vegetables for their antioxidant capability, blueberries came out on top, rating highest in their capacity to destroy free radicals.1 Just this year, scientists have discovered mechanisms to explain how blueberries can improve memory and restore healthy neuronal function to aged brains. The astounding conclusion of researchers was that the favorable effects of blueberries on brain function are analogous to those seen with long-term calorie restriction.2,3
Blueberry extracts help maintain healthy blood flow via several mechanisms including healthy LDL oxidation, normal platelet aggregation, and maintenance of endothelial function.
When blood flow is interrupted to the brain (ischemia), significant and permanent damage often results. In rats fed blueberries, the size of the area of the brains damaged by ischemia was 50 percent less than the control group.4Blueberry's most active constituents
The two most active constituents found in this health-promoting fruit are anthocyanins and pterostilbene. Blueberry anthocyanins are considered nature's most potent antioxidants and have demonstrated properties that extend well beyond suppressing free radicals. Pterostilbene is another blueberry constituent that helps maintain healthy lipid and glucose levels that are already within healthy ranges.5 Even more exciting is that through its unique biological effects, pterostilbene may help maintain healthy DNA structure.6Supplement FactsServing Size:
