What is Blueberry Extract?
Blueberries are perennial flowering plants with indigo-colored berries from the section Cyanococcus within the genus Vaccinium (a genus that also includes cranberries, bilberries and grouseberries). Species in the section Cyanococcus are the most common fruits sold as “blueberries” and are native to North America (commercially cultivated highbush blueberries were not introduced into Europe until the 1930s).
Blueberries are usually erect, prostrate shrubs that can vary in size from 10 centimeters (3.9 in) to 4 meters (13 ft) in height. In the commercial production of blueberries, the smaller species are known as “lowbush blueberries” (synonymous with “wild”), while the larger species are known as “highbush blueberries”.
Blueberry extract is a natural substance sold in supplement form. Said to offer a range of health benefits, blueberry extract is often touted as a rich source of antioxidants. These antioxidants include anthocyanins, a class of compounds purported to reduce inflammation and protect against heart disease and cancer.
Health Benefits of Blueberry Extract Anthocyanidins
Although research on the health effects of blueberry extract is fairly limited, some studies suggest that blueberry extract may offer certain benefits. Here’s a look at some key findings from the available research:
Findings from laboratory research and animal-based studies indicate that blueberry extract may aid in diabetes management. In a 2009 study published in Phytomedicine, for instance, scientists found that treating diabetic mice with blueberry extract helped lower blood sugar levels.
High Blood Pressure
Blueberry extract may help keep blood pressure in check, according to an animal-based study published in Nutrition Research in 2009. In tests on rats, researchers discovered that blueberry extract helped prevent the development of high blood pressure.
In addition, blueberry extract appeared to reduce oxidative stress (a major contributor to heart disease).
Animal-based research suggests that blueberry extract shows promise for the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease. For example, a 2010 study on rats (published in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry) found that blueberry extract helped shield the animals’ brains from the toxic effects of amyloid-beta (a substance that forms the brain plaques associated with Alzheimer’s disease).
Blueberry Extract and Cancer
Some preliminary studies show that blueberry extract may help fight breast cancer. These studies include a 2010 report published in Cancer Research, in which scientists found that blueberry extract helped inhibit the growth of cancerous breast tumors in mice. In a test-tube study published in Phytotherapy Research the same year, anthocyanins extracted from blueberries appeared to slow the growth of breast cancer cells
Dosage of Blueberry Extract Anthocyanidins
The appropriate dose of blueberry depends on several factors such as the user’s age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for blueberry. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.
Potential Side Effects Of Blueberry Extract Anthocyanidins
If you are taking blood-thinners such as Coumadin (warfarin), it is important that you do not suddenly begin to eat more or less foods containing vitamin K, which plays a large role in blood clotting.
It is the total diet or overall eating pattern that is most important in disease prevention and achieving good health. It is better to eat a diet with a variety than to concentrate on individual foods as the key to good health.
