Anthocyanins are the compounds responsible for giving blueberries their dark blue color. Since we've concentrated these compounds in this extract, staining can occur with anything that this product touches. For this reason, caution should be used when handling this product.

What is a Blueberry Extract?

Blueberries are a small, round, blue-purple fruit belonging to the genus Vaccinium, much like cranberries and bilberries. There are a variety of blueberries: Rabbiteye, Lowbush, Northern Highbush, Wild Hog, Andean, and Colombian. [1] Blueberries contain very high concentrations of anthocyanin, which confers roughly 85% of blueberries’ cellular health capabilities.* [2]

This powder has a bitter taste due to sugars not surviving the extraction process. To mask this taste try adding a sweetener like monk fruit extract or create your own capsules using an encapsulation kit.

Anthocyanin Definition

Anthocyanins are water-soluble pigments that may appear red, purple, or blue depending upon the pH level. These pigments are not only what give blueberries their color due to the high concentration found in the fruit, but they are also what give blueberries the majority of their cellular health capabilities.* [2,3] While fresh blueberries themselves contain anywhere from .693% to 8.8% anthocyanin content, extracts can be standardized to contain much more, as is the case for this 25% extract. [3]

Blueberry Extract Benefits

Blueberry extract is a potent source of cellular health benefits. One study found that supplementing with blueberries promoted healthy body composition. [4] Blueberry extract can also help to promote general cognition and memory.*

Additional Blueberry Powder Benefits

Taking a blueberry supplement prior to and after exercise can aid in promoting muscle recovery from tough workouts. [6] Subjective well-being was also found to be supplemented when taking blueberry extract.* [5]

Blueberry Extract Dosage

The recommended dosage is 500mg two to three times daily.
