Why Organic Wild Blueberries?

The wild blueberry skin contains the deep blue pigment and a revered source of  antioxidants. Unlike cultivated high bush blueberries, wild blueberries are prized for being considered a "whole food".

Wild blueberries are native to Maine and Canada and grow naturally in the glacial soil of our colder climate. Unlike cultivated high bush blueberries, wild blueberries are low bush and are spread primarily by the rhizomes or underground runners which give rise to new shoots and stems. The wild blueberry fields or barrens contain many different varieties of blueberries. These wild blueberries have grown for thousands of years and many are still harvested with hand held blueberry rakes.

What are Antioxidants?

In simple terms, antioxidants are nutrients found in plant based foods such as fruits, vegetables, and grains that help keep the skin and body healthy.

 

Risk factors for premature skin aging:

  • Lack of hydration-not drinking enough water
  • Not using a moisturizer
  • Stress
  • Smoking or exposure to second hand smoke
  • Sun exposure/sunburns, past or present
  • Toxins from the environment: such as harmful chemicals that may be found in cleaning products, insect repellents, detergents, fabric softeners, and chemical laden skin and body products
  • Pollution
  • Insufficient sleep
