Life Extension Blueberry Extract with Pomegranate Description
- Full-Spectrum Food-Based Polyphenols
Compared to many fruits and vegetables, blueberries contain some of the most potent compounds for combating oxidative stress and inflammation. Blueberry Extract with Pomegranate is formulated from wild blueberries which provide even more potency than commercially grown varieties. The formula also includes potent doses of pomegranate extract to provide additional antioxidants.
Benefits at a Glance
- Helps support arterial health by maintaining blood flow
- Provides antioxidant protection
- Provides natural, full-spectrum polyphenols
- Offers potent doses of multiple fruit compounds in one capsule
Helps support arterial health by maintaining blood flow
This extract helps to maintain healthy blood flow via several mechanisms. The first is by maintaining already normal LDL levels and blood pressure within normal limits. The other involves assisting the preservation of endothelial and vascular function.
Provides Antioxidant Protection
Blueberries' compounds have greater capacity to destroy free radicals than other fruits and vegetables. The two most active are anthocyanins and pterostilbene. Anthocyanins are considered one of nature's most potent antioxidants. Pterostilbene helps maintain healthy lipid and glucose levels that are already within healthy ranges. Through its unique biological effects and antioxidative potential, pterostilbene also helps maintain healthy DNA structure.
To maximize the benefits of this healthful fruit, Blueberry Extract with Pomegranate uses AuroraBlue®, made from wild Alaskan blueberries — ones that grow in a completely natural environment without exposure to any chemicals. This complex comes from the genus Vaccinium that's abundant with anthocyanins, with nearly 10 times the antioxidant capacity of commercially cultivated berries.
Potent Doses of Multiple Fruit Compounds in One Capsule
In addition to wild blueberry extract, this formula also contains potent doses of pomegranate extract. Pomegranate fruit contains polyphenols, tannins, and anthocyanins — all beneficial antioxidants. Compounds known as punicalagins also found in pomegranate benefit arterial health by virtue of their ability to regulate healthy endothelial function.
