This is in part due to the flavonoid anthocyanin which gives the Blueberry its blue color.
It helps to fight off fungal infections, and the ability to improve the strength of the capillaries in the eyes and benefit cardiovascular health.
Anthocyanin has also been extensively studied for its ability to improve eyesight and reduce eyestrain.
Blueberry also shows promise in the treatment of Alzheimer's and in the reduction of age-related loss of mental acuity.
This finding adds to a growing list of reasons to eat or supplement with this colorful fruit.
As a nutritional supplement, Blueberry is a good source of potassium, calcium, vitamins A, C and E, folic acid and fiber.
Blueberry is great against free radicals. Free radicals are special molecules that reduce the antioxidant potential in the body and increase oxidative stress. Blueberry is high in a substance called flavonoids, chemically known as polyphenols. Blueberry's flavonoids are anthocyanosides that enhance microcirculation throughout the body.
Research has shown this effect to be particularly noticeable in the delicate blood vessels supplying the retina of the eye. The retina is where the major functions of vision occur.
Suggested Use: 250 to 500 mg, 1 to 3 times daily. 500 mg yields 25 mg anthocyanins.
