Wild berry science*
Berries are wonderful natural medicines with impressive power to fight diseases (1) as well as to defense against multiple processes of aging (2).
They contain polyphenols like flavonoids, phenolic acids, lignans, stillbenes and tannins (phenolic polymers). Compared to other colored fruits, berries are especially rich in anthocyanins responsible for the deep red, blue and purple pigments. These compounds serve also as antioxidant that protect against oxidative damages. Berries are also rich in vitamins, especially A, B, C and E, and essential nutrients like potassium, manganese, copper, iron and zinc. They contain beta-carotenes, enzymes and fibers. Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Potassium contributes to normal muscle function, to normal functioning of the nervous system and to the maintenance of normal blood pressure.
Anthocyanins have antioxidant properties and can reduce DNA damage related to oxidation and stress.
Berries help human body to protect from oxidant stress and diseases, including cancers. They also help to improve health by boosting the immunity level. Beside the antioxidant properties, they have also anti-inflammatory and antihistamine properties. Berries favor blood, bone, cognitive and heart health. They protect and rejuvenate cells, tissues and organs.Because of these health benefits, berries are regarded as highly nutritious superfruits.
Wild berries are even richer and more nutritious than the cultivated berries. They grow in the nordic wilderness. They are handpicked and processed with care. By using only the best quality ingredients and sophisticated manufacturing methods, the most beneficial characteristics of natural berries are retained.
