Healthberry® 865 is a scientifically backed natural berry extract derived from wild Scandinavian bilberries and blackcurrants grown in New Zealand. It has a particularly high and stable anthocyanin content, making it suitable for a multitude of functional food and beverage applications.
Anthocyanins are natural water-soluble polyphenols that belong to the class of flavonoids. These antioxidants are potent free radical scavengers, and can be used as chelating agents for metal ions – which are thought to play a role in human diseases and aging.
Moreover, anthocyanins are responsible for the red, blue and purple colors of many fruits and vegetables, with red hues indicating higher acidity and dark blue stronger alkalinity. Foods rich in anthocyanin include berries, cherries, red grapes, red cabbage and the black variants of soybean and Rice.
Healthberry® 865 builds on the beneficial properties of anthocyanins. There are many international studies suggesting that anthocyanins have a number of positive effects on human health. These range from reducing the risk of heart diseases and diabetes, to strengthening the cognitive and brain functions, the nervous system and visual acuity.
