ENHANCE THE PROTECTION OF ALL CELLS
For our unique multiple benefits supplement we combined two natural and powerful antioxidants: bilberry and nordic pine bark extracts. Bilberry (often confused with blueberry) is the fruit of Vaccinium myrtillus. It is known as the highest antioxidant source thanks to its content of Anthocyanins (33% higher than blueberry). Nordic Pine is known to contain health-promoting plant compounds like vitamins, catechins, polyphenols and other phytonutrients. For supplement we chose 2 branded ingredients: Feno-Myrtillus® and Fenoprolic®. Both ingredients are extracted in Finnland and come from wild and sustainable organic farming. Bilberry extract is standardised to 5% Anthocyanins while pine bark extrakt to 25% oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC). Our product is not only natural and organic (therefore free of pesticides), but also free from additives like magnesium stearate and microcrystalline cellulose. Of course, our product is non-GMO and suitable for vegans.
SPECIALLY DEVELOPED FOR
Bilberry and Nordic Pine bark are valuable sources of anthocyanins (phytonutrients with antioxidants properties). Antioxidants can protect our cells from damaging interactions with free radicals and thus oxidative stress.
GOOD TO KNOW
- The anthocyanin levels of Finnish bilberry are high when compared to other berries . It contains anthocyanins at a level that is 3-5 higher than that in highbush blueberry. Anthocyanins are bioactive compounds, which give the Finnish bilberry its characteristic dark blue or purple colour inside and out.
- The difference in the colour of flesh between the bilberry and blueberry is visible, since the flesh of highbush blueberry is white.
- Bilberry Sunday is a charming old festival that lives only in Ireland’s distant memory. Celebrated in mid-summer, it was once a day when people went to hillsides and peat lands in groups to collect bilberries, and sometimes find a spouse.
- Your blueberry jam may not actually be made from blueberries! Some producers of blueberries use bilberries in their products instead.
