By 2029, more than 20 precent of the total U.S. population will be over the age of 65 (US Census, 2012). By 2050, 30% of the total population in the U.S. will be over 65 years of age. As our aging population expands we see more age-related health disorders, which means we must find measures to prevent or even reverse age-related health disorders (Joseph et al., 2009).
Research has recently shown that consumption of berry fruit, and in particular blueberry, can dramatically impact the aging brain, possibly leading to improved cognition and motor abilities (Joseph et al., 2009).
As you can see both of my above citings come from James Joseph who was for several decades the lead scientist and lab chief for the Laboratory of Neuroscience at the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University.
It was Dr. Joseph’s research and that of his colleagues who demonstrated that blueberries and blueberry extract reverse and prevent brain aging (Shukitt-Hale et al., 2008; 2007), improve memory and motor skills (Carey et al., 2014; Malin et al., 2011; Brewer et al., 2010), repair neuronal tissue and function (Joseph et al., 2003; Miller et al., 2012), and serve as a potent anti-aging food (Joseph et al., 1999; 2009; Shukitt-Hale et al., 2015; 2012).
Our Blueberry Extract was designed with Dr. Joseph’s help. He helped me to convert his work to human consumption. It is the most powerful blueberry extract on the market, our 100% North American blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum) provides a comprehensive profile of anthocyanins.
Suggest dose is one capsule a day or as directed by your physician.

We have developed our products based on scientific research and/or the practical experience of many healthcare practitioners. There is a growing body of literature on food based nutrition and supplements and their application in support of our health. Please use our products under the advisement of your doctor.
|Note: We are gradually changing all our labels as you can see if you click here on the Supernatant and High ORAC Synbiotics links. The new label for the Blueberry Extract will have a subtitle and read: Blueberry Extract- Cognitive and Nerve Regeneration.|
