The Blueberry Extract is Back
The Blueberry Extract is back.
Research has shown that blueberry, and blueberry extract in particular, can protect us from cognitive decline and actually help reverse the effects of senescence (aging). You will remember more easily and look better!
A cup or two of blueberries every day will improve cognitive performance, improve our athletic abilities (balance, strength, and endurance), elevate our mood (Miller et al., 2018; Schrager et al., 2015; Khalid et al., 2017) and even protect and clear up your skin (Wang et al., 2019). . Research also emphasizes that the quantity of blueberries matter: one cup a day is good but 2 cups a day may be even better (Miller & Shukitt-Hale, 2012). These health improvements are not just limited to the elderly but to all ages. Research has shown that children can greatly benefit too (Whyte, 2016; Khalid, 2017).
The BioImmersion Blueberry Extract is a very serious product. The cognitive, mood enhancing, and athletic benefits emanate from the blueberry pigment; and that is what is extracted from the North American blueberry we have chosen for the Blueberry Extract. Each capsule contains 500mg of this precious extract, equivalent to one and a quarter cups of blueberries. In fact, it takes 80 lbs. of blueberries to get 1 lb. of this extract!
Recommended dose: one capsule daily.

Eco-farming combines modern science and innovation with respect for nature and biodiversity. It ensures healthy farming and healthy food. It protects the soil, the water and the climate. It does not contaminate the environment with chemical inputs or use genetically engineered crops. And it places people and farmers—consumers and producers, rather than the corporations who control our food now—at its very heart.
It is a vision of sustainability and food sovereignty in which food is grown with health and safety first and where control over food and farming rests with local communities, rather than transnational corporations.
