Packed with antioxidant phytonutrients called anthocyanins, blueberries neutralize free radical damage to the collagen matrix of cells and tissues that can lead to cataracts, glaucoma, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, peptic ulcers, heart disease and cancer. They also fight sun damage to skin and may thwart the effects of Alzheimer’s and other age-related diseases. Blueberries also contain 6ug./100g of folic acid. Folic acid benefits the fetus during pregnancy and may help guard against cervical cancer.

Researchers at Tufts University, USA, focused on the antioxidant characteristics of 40 different fruits and vegetables, particularly the phytochemicals called flavonoids. And blueberries came out tops. One serving of blueberries provides as many antioxidants as 5 servings of carrots, apples, broccoli and squash.

Blueberries may also be effective at lowering cholesterol and have fewer side effects than commercial drugs (Info c/- Monavale Blueberries Ltd

All products used are from natural sources.A survey by the US Dept of Agriculture in 2002 showed that 73 percent of conventional crops contained at least one pesticide residue. Conventional crops were six times more likely to have multiple pesticide residues. Over 90 percent of conventional apples, peaches, pears, strawberries and celery were contaminated.

    But research shows that organic fruit and vegetables actually have more nutrients than conventional.
    In a study of organic versus conventional fruits, vegetables and grains, V Worthington showed that organic crops showed significantly more vitamin C, iron, magnesium, and phosphorus and significantly less nitrates than conventional crops. There were non significant trends showing less protein but of a better quality and a higher content of nutritionally significant minerals with lower amounts of some heavy metals in organic crops compared with conventional ones.
    Organic certification is a process which assures the consumer that growing standards have been met. (Info from Monavale Blueberries Ltd)

Veda says, ‘Water permeates every aspect of our existence, in fact, by molecular count you are 99% water – and yet, it is still a mystery in so many ways. Science can’t even tell us where it came from, it defies the laws of physics and chemistry, and it is the most incredible ‘shape shifter’ on the Planet.

When it comes to ageing, we are all looking for the Fountain of Youth. Surely, if we are made up of such a huge percentage of water, we should be looking at the ‘ocean’ within us for answers. Water is an immortal element; it doesn’t die, you can’t kill it, and it is always in one of its stages. So if this is true, and we are made up of so much of it, then why are we not immortal too? Is it possible that the KIND of water you are, literally defines your state of health, rate of cellular ageing, and mental wellbeing?’
