Waxberry (Yumberry) Fruit Powder
Waxberries are native to China where the fruits have been cultivated for more than 2,000 years, though records reveal the fruit might have been harvested as far back as 5000 B.C. Archaeological and written evidence suggest that Waxberry cultivation first took place in China over 2,000 years ago during the Han Dynasty. Waxberry is mentioned throughout Chinese literature, including several appearances in Li Bai's poems. Rightfully nicknamed ‘China Wonder Fruit’, Waxberry, also known as Bayberry and Yumberry, contains loads of Vitamin C and E as well as Riboflavin, Thiamine and Carotene.

The Chinese also prizes the fruit for their anti-wrinkling properties and for a young looking skin. Besides Vitamins C and E, Riboflavin, Carotene and Thiamine, some consider the Waxberry a ‘super fruit’ because of its high content of antioxidants, more accurately Oligomeric Proantho Cyanidins (OPCs) the most powerful class of free-radical-scavenging antioxidants assumed to support the body’s every metabolic system. Fifty times more potent than Vitamin E and twenty times more powerful than Vitamin C!!! The fruit also provides cleansing digestive system properties (So, be ready to go to the bathroom) The Chinese believe it benefits respiratory as well as aiding healthy inflammation management and menstrual health support. This unique fruit has also been shown to boost the immune system. it might increase strength and elasticity of blood vessels while it may slow down the collapse of collagen too, keeping your skin smooth and firm, in other words, an anti-ageing wonder berry.
According to recent studies, Oligomeric Proantho Cyanidins are highly resistant to free radicals, and since the Chinese Waxberry is rated as one of the most potent antioxidants, it is believed to sweep free radicals completely out of the body. OPCs apparently penetrate the blood-brain barrier, and in turn may protect the nervous system and brain. OPCs are also believed to combat cataracts, slow ageing skin, and may help relieving discomfort and inflammation joints. Waxberry juice has even been used to maintain healthy blood pressure, clear blockages, and help to restore the flexibility of blood vessels. As a treatment for those with bodies not producing enough or respond normally to insulin, Waxberry juice helps normalise cells and supports the pancreas.

Waxberry / Yumberry... Closing Thoughts
Red Waxberry / Yumberry or Bayberry plants are evergreen trees cultivated in hilly areas of south-eastern China. The plant bears edible fruit. There are also local uses for its seeds, leaves and roots. The red Waxberry plant has a height of 2-10 metres and a uniform round-shaped canopy. Red Waxberry trees grow well on poor soils due to a nitrogen-fixing bacterium association with the root system. Thus, strong growth and high productivity can be achieved on infertile hill slopes. Male and female catkins are on separate plants and pollination is by wind.
Red Waxberry / Yumberry fruit from cultivation can be about 3 centimetres diameter. The fruits ripen in China from mid-June to early July, in mid-Summer. The harvest period is short, being just 2-3 weeks duration. Red Waxberry fruit are harvested when appearance and taste are optimal. The fruit have a palatable sugar-acid balance. They contain a broad spectrum of vitamins that include: vitamin C, thiamine, riboflavin, carotene, and minerals. Harvested red Waxberry fruit rapidly break down under ambient conditions, and present similar post-harvest handling challenges to temperate berry fruits. Their delicate nature makes it difficult to store and transport the fresh fruit. This is exactly why Ancient Purity’s dried Waxberry Powder Extract is soooo special, a Chinese Strawberry hit nutritionally and an amazing smoothie ingredient.
