Blueberry extract is found to be one of the most effective fruits that protect human brain performance and reduce the risk of contracting Parkinson’s!
BioImmersion’s Blueberry extracts, is not only rich in anthocynanins and proanthocyanidins, but has the full spectrum of these important nutrients! Our new technology of extraction successfully captures all of these flavonoids that is in the whole blueberry. The extract is powerful and expensive. See how to benefit from the extract in the clinical notes.
Anthocynanis and Proanthocynidines were shown to alleviate neurodegeneration by stimulating cells mitochondria and thereby helping the cells to survive. The study suggests that blueberries can contribute to prevention of the onset of neurodegeration, a hallmark of Parkinson’s.
Dr. Mary Ann Lia, blueberry researcher and director of North Carolina State University’s Plants for Human Health Institute, is part of the team of scientists, stated that “Blueberries have both of these natural chemicals, anthocyanins and proanthocyanidins, in high concentrations, so they pack a more powerful, one-two punch. And, they can have synergistic benefits that surpass many other fruits when it comes to protection against brain cell death, which in turn may reduce the risk of contracting Parkinson’s.”

Our new pure Blueberry Extract from the cultivar Vaccinium corymbosum offers an especially high yield of a broad spectrum of anthocyanins, and proanthocyanadins. With our advanced extraction technology we are able to capture 100% of these important flavonoids from each berry.
Our suggested dose is to start with one capsule a day. Increase as needed and then go back to the smallest dosage for maintenance.
The Last Quiz Answer:
Are elephants the bees of the Ndok Forest? These are. These three amazing, rangy elephants are part of a family of jungle elephants emerging into a clearing deep in the heart of the Congo’s jungle wilderness.
The Congo, like the Amazon and the Great Boreal Forest of the Northern Woods are the lungs of the earth’s biosphere. And, these elephants, like the bees, spread the seeds of plants, through their eating and pooping, to diversify plant species over wide areas of the jungle—planting trees, and greening our planet.
“Forest elephants at natural densities probably disperse more seeds than any other species or genus of vertebrates in African forests.”
