When scientists analyze fruits and vegetables for their antioxidant capability, blueberries rank among the highest in their capacity to destroy free radicals. Rich in antioxidants that combat oxidative stress and inflammation, blueberry extracts not only help preserve youthful cognitive function, but also help maintain healthy blood flow via several mechanisms, including maintaining already normal LDL levels and endothelial function. The two most active constituents found in blueberries are anthocyanins and pterostilbene. Blueberry anthocyanins are considered one of nature's most potent antioxidants. Pterostilbene is the other blueberry constituent that helps maintain healthy lipid and glucose levels that are already within healthy ranges. Through its unique biological effects and antioxidative potential, pterostilbene may help maintain healthy DNA structure. Scientists have discovered mechanisms to explain how blueberries can improve memory and restore healthy neuronal function to aged brains. The benefits of blueberries on brain function are analogous to those seen with long-term calorie restriction. Blueberry Extract Capsules contain a combination of highly concentrated wild blueberry extracts (not cultivated). These extracts are standardized to natural compounds that have the highest physiological activity for the health benefits associated with consumption of fresh blueberries. To augment the benefits of this healthful fruit, a new wild blueberry extract has been added to Blueberry Extract that provides more potent active ingredients than cultivated blueberries. Blueberry Extract now contains AuroraBlue, which provides the only true wild Alaskan blueberries that grow in a completely natural environment without exposure to any harmful chemicals. This complex of wild fruits belonging to the genus Vaccinium is rich in unique antioxidants (anthocyanins and pterostilbene being the two most active) and possesses nearly 10 times the antioxidant capacity of cultivated berries.
