Wild Blueberries Named to Top 10 List of Healthiest Foods for Women
“If berries are nutritional treasures, Wild Blueberries are the crown jewels…truly one of nature’s ultimate antiaging foods,” according to the feature, which gave Wild Blueberries the #2 slot on its Superfoods list. Health editors recommend that readers mix in Wild Blueberries with their daily berries servings “as much as possible” for their many health benefits, and point readers to the frozen fruit aisle of supermarkets for the healthy frozen version available every season of the year.
A native North American berry, Wild Blueberries (www.wildblueberries.com) grow naturally in Downeast Maine and Canada. Wild Blueberries have been found to have a higher level of antioxidants than most other fruits by USDA research findings and by such respected publications as the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry, having long been prized for their nutritional properties. The pearl-sized berries may help boost immune systems and help guard against cell damage associated with cancer, heart disease, damage from stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, and the effects of aging for both men and women.
The recent Health article on America’s Healthiest Superfoods further builds on Wild Blueberries’ reputation in the health and flavor arena. The magazine reports that when Cornell University scientists recently devised a new method of testing the antioxidant activity in foods, Wild Blueberries scored the highest marks.
“This is impressive. Wild Blueberries have become a bona fide icon for healthy foods, plain and simple,” noted Dr. Steven Pratt, M.D., senior staff ophthalmologist at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, California, world-renowned nutrition authority, and author of the best-selling SuperFoods Rx series of books. “Of particular interest has been watching the rise of frozen Wild Blueberries where the frozen version of the fruit is every bit as nutritious as the fresh off the field.”
Dr. Pratt’s observation helps explain why nutrient-rich, frozen Wild Blueberries are changing how many shoppers are beginning to view the frozen food aisle in their local supermarkets.
