#wildblue health fact!

Did you know? Wild blueberries have 2x the antioxidant power of ordinary blueberries!

Dietary antioxidants like anthocyanins, flavonoids found in the blue pigments of Wild Blueberries, have the ability to neutralize free radicals and help prevent cell damage. Antioxidants also protect against inflammation, thought to be a leading factor in brain aging, Alzheimer’s disease and other degenerative diseases.

Just another reason to dig into a daily dose of Canadian wild blueberries!
