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.
Healthberry® 865 has a wealth of potential applications in the functional food and beverages sector. This multi-dimensional offering is a particularly effective solution in addressing heart health.
Healthberry® 865 targets several aspects of cardiovascular disease (CVD) pathologies. For example, when administered to patients with elevated risk factors for CVD, it significantly increases their high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels, while cutting low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels by a similar margin. Moreover, the C3G and D3G anthocyanins in Healthberry® 865 reduce pro-inflammatory cytokines – the proteins involved in cell signaling. Each anthocyanin has a separate impact, but combined, they have also shown beneficial synergies.
The benefits of Healthberry® 865 for obese and diabetic patients are also clear to see. The solution not only alters their cholesterol levels – it boosts their antioxidant capacity and prevents the build-up of resistance to insulin. In-vitro studies have shown that C3G supplementation in Healthberry® 865 significantly reduces fat accumulation in visceral areas and liver tissue. Specifically, beneficial effects include reduced levels of plasma cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP), the type of protein that builds up in obese individuals.
