Years of research show that a good diet — and specifically one including wild blueberries — has been linked to improved memory and overall brain health.
The deep pigments of wild blueberries (a.k.a. anthocyanins) have been shown to improve vision recovery after exposure to bright light (for example, helping you recover quicker after seeing bright headlights while driving at night). Anthocyanins have also been shown to help eyes by lowering blood and fluid pressure and possibly reducing the likelihood of cataracts.
Heart disease is the #1 cause of death worldwide.1 A growing body of evidence based on 20+ years of research shows that the purple-blue anthocyanins found in wild blueberries protect the cardiovascular system, reducing blood pressure and reducing risk of clogged blood vessels
DIABETES AND METABOLIC SYNDROME
A healthy diet is one of the best ways to prevent metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. As a low-glycemic food, wild blueberries can help you maintain healthy blood sugar. In one study, subjects who ate wild blueberries daily for six weeks improved insulin sensitivity.
MORE WILD RESEARCH EXPLORED
Ongoing research into wild blueberries is looking into how they can help with exercise performance and recovery, with wound healing, and with the prevention of bone loss.
