Freeze dried blueberries are a well-known source of antioxidants like anthocyanins; vitamin C, B complex, E and A, copper, selenium, manganese, zinc, dietary fibre, iron.
Recently, researchers at Tufts University analysed 60 fruits and vegetables for their antioxidant capability. Blueberries graced the top of the list, rating highest in their capacity to possibly destroy free radicals.
Phytonutrients called anthocyanins in blueberries support the body’s ability to neutralize free radical damage to the collagen matrix of cells and tissues that can lead to a multitude of conditions.
Anthocyanins, the blue-red pigment found in blueberries, have been shown to support the effects of vitamin C, support capillary health and stabilize the collagen matrix. Anthocyanins work their protective magic by preventing free-radical damage, inhibiting enzymes from severing the collagen matrix, and directly cross-linking with collagen fibres to form a stabilized collagen matrix.
