By now it is no secret how in love I am with the Blueberry Extract - There are so many good reasons.
It is a product that keeps on giving: from brain cells and nerve repair to beautiful skin, amongst other functions - and thankfully, to DNA protection and lowering the risk of type 2 diabetes (Fernandes et al., 2022).
Blueberries are known to be a powerful anti-inflammatory agents, and researchers have notices that alongside lower inflammation there is lower insulin resistance (Delpino et al., 2022; Jennings et al., 2014).
How many blueberries or milligrams of the extract do we need to get these exciting results?
According to Jennings et al., around 35mg a day, which is just a few tablespoons (2014). Eating two cups of blueberries increased the body's ability to reduce insulin resistance and offer a greater protection of DNA (Shi et al., 2017; Stull et al., 2010).
Encouraged? I am. I do take 2 capsules of the Blueberry Extract a day. One capsule has 500mg of the extract, which is equivalent to a cup and a quarter of potent blueberries, with 12% measured Anthocyanin.
