BlueberryActive Concentrate Review – Blueberries Vs Alzheimer’s
This month, it’s World Alzheimer’s Month and doctors are suggesting that blueberries could be an important weapon in the battle against Alzheimer’s disease.
Blueberries are full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and are proven to boost immunity and brain power. Studies show that a daily glass of blueberry juice can help sharpen recall, concentration, brain health and cognitive task performance.
In a 12-week study of older adults with dementia, those who drank blueberry juice showed a significant improvement in learning and memory tests. Another study with freeze dried blueberry powder also showed great results. Elderly adults with a risk condition for Alzheimer’s disease were given the powder daily for 16 weeks and showed an improvement in cognitive performance and brain function compared to the participants who had taken a placebo. MRI scans also confirmed increased brain activity.
Dark berries are usually high in flavonoids that help improve blood flow to the brain, resulting in elevated brain activity.
So why not try a daily glass of blueberry juice to help sharpen your brain? BlueberryActive is a 100% natural blueberry concentrate from the makers of award-winning CherryActive. It doesn’t contain any additives, preservatives or added sugars — it’s 100% blueberries and nothing else.
You simply add 30ml of BlueberryActive to a glass of water, juice or a smoothie. You can also drizzle it over yoghurt for a delicious breakfast or dessert.
A 237ml bottle makes approximately 8 glasses of diluted juice. Each 30ml serving contains around 179 blueberries which is about the same as two supermarket punnets and also counts as one of your 5-a-day.
I drink my blueberry juice mixed with regular tap water. I pour the blueberry juice into the glass first as this mixes it into the water more evenly.
Having never tried this kind of product before, I was scared that it might taste really strong or not be sweet enough but it is absolutely delicious! Probably especially so to a Scandinavian like myself who has grown up eating lots of fresh blueberries that I’d picked with my parents and sisters. I love the flavour of blueberries and this tastes like a lovely, pure squash and the natural sweetness is enough for me. I could easily drink way too much of it due to liking the flavour so much! Yum!
