It is well known that those who consume more antioxidants as part of an overall healthy diet are likely to have a reduced risk of some chronic diseases. They are not proposing eliminating vegetables frm the diet, but it's great to know that in one serving, you can get the healthful equivalent of more than 3 average servings of fruits and vegetables.

In ONE serving you get:
- At least 3500 ORAC units—more than the antioxidant capacity in THREE average servings of fruits and vegetables—making this an antioxidant powerhouse!
- At least 50mg anthocyanins (a USDA survey suggests we aren’t getting enough in our diet--only 12.5mg are consumed daily on average).
- A simple and convenient way to benefit from various berry and fruit phytonutrients that will help you maintain optimal health.
It is well known that people who consume a higher level of antioxidants as part of an overall healthy diet are likely to have a reduced risk of some chronic diseases associated with free radical buildup.
BerrySelect Plus combines different berry and fruit extracts, blending a broad spectrum of phytonutrient compounds to maximize antioxidant power in one convenient supplement.
Hierarchy of Actives
Polyphenols are a large family of natural phytonutrients widely distributed in plant foods. They are characterized by the presence of more than one phenol unit per molecule.
Flavonoids (or "bioflavonoids") make up an important subcategory of polyphenols that exhibit potent antioxidant activity. Many health promoting effects are attributed to flavonoids.
Anthocyanins, with their incredible antioxidant and health-promoting potential, are one of the most widely-studied flavonoid categories. Anthocyanins are the water-soluble pigments that are responsible for the dark red-purple color found in fruits, vegetables, and flowers. The darker the berry, the more anthocyanins that are present.
Perhaps one of the most important health attributes of dark berries that are high in anthocyanins is the antioxidant capacity. Antioxidants neutralize free radical buildup, also known as oxidative stress. Free radicals are linked to the development of a number of degenerative diseases and conditions. Free radicals are by-products of normal bodily functions and are inevitable in daily life. However, it is the delicate balance of antioxidants and free radicals that determine our state of health. As we age, the body doesn't function as efficiently and as a result, an excess of free radicals are produced. We can do our best to arm ourselves by including sufficient amounts of antioxidants in our diet or by supplementing our diet with products that are rich in dark berry anthocyanins.
The Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) test is one commonly used method for measuring the antioxidant capacity of a substance. The higher the ORAC value, the higher the higher the antioxidant activity.
Berry Select Plus is the Answer
BerrySelect Plus provides the antioxidant activity of more than 3 servings of fruits and vegetables (based on ORAC values and data from the USDA Continuing Survey).

Flavonoids (or "bioflavonoids") make up an important subcategory of polyphenols that exhibit potent antioxidant activity. Many health promoting effects are attributed to flavonoids. Anthocyanins, with their incredible antioxidant and health-promoting potential, are one of the most widely-studied flavonoid categories.
