Berries contain some of the highest levels of antioxidants, making them powerful support in the fight against illness and disease. Although all berries provide beneficial antioxidants, generally, the darker the berry, the richer its antioxidant and anthocyanin content. Taking note of the nutritious quality of dark berries in particular, supplement company Berries for Life formulated a line of supplements based on the health benefits of dark berries such as blueberries, elderberries, cranberries and black currants.
With the annual onslaught of colds and the flu making their appearance, now is the time to boost your immune system to make it through the season. Berries for Life BerryImmune supplement combines the power of several berries to create a well-rounded immune supplement that provides defense against illness on multiple levels. Thanks to their anti-bacterial qualities, cranberries fight off bacteria-related illness, while anti-viral elderberry defends against virus-contracted illness. With a 13 percent elderberry extract, the BerryImmune supplement provides nearly three times the level of anthocyanins than are found in many immune supplements. BerryImmune also contains beta-glucan, an immune-enhancing compound that works by activating the immune system’s T- and B-cells.
Apart from its BerryImmune supplement, Berries for Life offers three additional supplements in what it calls its Functional Berry Supplements line: BerryVision for eye health, BerrySmart for brain health, and BerryCran for urinary tract health. Berries for Life also offers pure berry supplements of elderberry, blueberry, black currant and aroniaberry.
