Blueberries, Simple, Delicious... Nutritious
Heartful of Magic
A healthy heart is a right at the top of overall health, our heart relaxingly naturally moves blood through our body providing tissues with the oxygen and nutrients needed to live and thrive. High triglycerides, elevated cholesterol and increased blood pressure are just a few of the main issues for the heart disease, Magnesium is in Ancient Purity's opinion top of the list for natural heart health, however food wise Blueberries are a great snack and the long lasting delicous natural Blueberry Crush is easy, simple and healthful.
Studies show that consuming Blueberries can help reduce some of the risk factors for heart issues. As an example a 2015 study found that eating Blueberries every day for 8 weeks resulted in lower blood pressure and arterial stiffness in 48 women. Then another study in published in the Journal of Nutrition reported that Blueberry in high dose led to greater decreases in blood pressure and oxidised LDL cholesterol, 2 major risk factors for heart issues, compared to a control group. The health benefits of Blueberries for your heart can be massively enhanced when combined with a Organic Whole Food balanced diet, a healthy lifestyle, regular exercise and making sure you keep Magnesium flowing.
Enjoy the Blueberry Crush anywhere
One of our favourite features of the Blueberry at Ancient Purity is it Brain health benefits, Blueberries could have the ability to enhance our brains health and there have been many studies suggesting that eating Blueberries or packing a smoothie full of this delicious crush -could improve memory and cognition.
In a recent 2016 study published in the European Journal of Nutrition, consuming a blueberry drink was found to improve cognitive performance compared to a placebo in 21 children. Another study showed that drinking wild Blueberry juice daily for 12 weeks was able to improve the memory of older adults, so remeber that means more concentrate than Blueberries alone, but don't go buying pasturised Blueberry juice, use real living Blueberries or just add thesed naturally air-dried ground Blueberries to pure water. The antioxidants in Blueberries may also protect our brain from free radical damage whilst promoting healthy brain ageing.

Digestion and Inflammation
Inflammation is a normal immune response which helps protect our body from illness and injury, chronic inflammation is at the root of most health issues. In fact, inflammation perhaps contributes to a vastly large range of health conditions. With its high antioxidant content, Blueberries have been shown to have a significant anti-inflammatory effect in the body. A 2014 test-tube study even found that the polyphenols found in Blueberries helped reduce the activity of several markers of inflammation. Similarly, an animal study published in the Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology also found that blueberry extract was effective in reducing swelling in rat paws.
The Blueberry also supports healthy digestion, this is most likely because it has 3.6 grams of fibre in each cup as we mentioned above in the "nutrient dense" section, a serving or 2 can help you meet your fibre needs while also promoting regularity and healthy digestion. When we eat fibre, it travels through the gastrointestinal tract undigested, adding bulk to the stool to keep you regular. In fact, an analysis in the World Journal of Gastroenterology looked at the results of five studies and found that increasing your intake of dietary fiber could help increase stool frequency in those with constipation.
Also on the subject of digestion, Blueberries can aid weight-loss, several animal studies have confirmed the beneficial effects of blueberries on weight loss. An animal study published in the journal PLoS One, for instance, found that blueberry juice prevented obesity in mice fed a high-fat diet. Whilst another animal study conducted by the Cardiovascular Center and the Michigan Integrative Medicine Program showed that blueberry intake was associated with a reduction in belly fat for obese rats.

Blueberries and Bilberries
Blueberries and Bilberries are often confused in everyday life. Both have a dark bluish, smooth skin and are similar in size, the bilberry being slightly smaller. Bilberries have been popular in Europe for centuries, and Blueberries were first widely grown in the U.S. in the 1920s.
Both fruits deliver big nutritional benefits. According to a University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center study, their antioxidants may even portend dramatic benefits for serious health conditions. Blueberries are native to the America's, whereas Bilberries are native to Northern Europe and certain parts of North America and Asia.
