You can clearly see from the tonight programme clip that the regular consumption of Canadian Wild Blueberries will significantly reduce and in some cases eliminate oxidative stress.

What is Oxidative Stress?

The Oxidative stress referred to in the video clip on the left is the leading cause of over 70 chronic diseases, including many types of cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.

In a nut-shell Oxidative stress is cell damage brought about by free radicals. It is essentially an imbalance between the production of free radicals and the ability of the body to counteract or detoxify their harmful effects through neutralization by antioxidants.

The only way to stop oxidative stress from occurring is by eating foods high in antioxidants. Canadian wild blueberries are the king of antioxidants, not only because they contain  more antioxidants than practically any other food but what’s most important here is the type of antioxidants they contain.The antioxidants in wild blueberries are unlike those found in any other food, such as the super powerful anthocyanins that give the berry its rich blue colour.
