Nowadays, people are willing to invest more in health. The markets of health supplements are rapidly expanding, and these products promote themselves by emphasizing their effects on better health and appearance.
Many fresh fruits and vegetables contain a lot of naturally occurring antioxidants, for example, vitamin C, vitamin E and phenolics. Scientific studies revealed that fresh blueberry contains the highest level of anti-oxidant activity among fruits, which offers protection to body against the damaging effects of free radicals and chronic disease.
Anthocyanin, a pigment responsible for red, purple and blue color in different fruits, is also an antioxidant found in blueberry. It is believed that anthocyanin helps to slow down ageing process and reduce risk of cancer. Some manufacturers promote their blueberry products as a concentrated extract from fresh blueberry with high level of anthocyanin. Therefore, the level of anthocyanin will act as an objective indicator in determining the quality between different blueberry health supplements.
