We are happy to offer you a powdered mix of 9 wonderful berries & fruits from around the world.
Thanks to its antioxidant and phytonutrient content, our product has a big potential to deliver a synergistic energy boost - and make you feel absolutely amazing!
Let’s take a closer look at the health benefits of this nutritionally outstanding whole food.
Of course, it is all about incredible Antioxidants inside our berries.
Over the last 10 - 15 years, we have seen a lot of renewed discussion about the nutritional value of antioxidants and phytonutrients found in raw berries and fruits.
But just why are they so valuable for our health?
We know that so-called free radicals are created as a result of normal processes taking place within the cells of our body to generate energy.
The problem is that at high concentrations, free radicals cause oxidative stress that can be very harmful to our health. (Ref. 1)
Oxidative stress is a root cause of many medical conditions, including cancer, arthritis, auto-immune disorders, as well as cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. (Ref. 1)
You may ask: If free radicals are a result of normal biological processes - why do we need to fight them?
The answer is: Many of us have UNHEALTHILY HIGH concentrations of free radicals, mostly due to:
Consumption of processed foods that are loaded with all sorts of toxins & infections,
Stress that, in itself, causes the release of toxins inside our bodies,
Very low levels of healthy vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other antioxidants that are designed to keep our bodies nourished and cleansed.
Antioxidants are substances that fight free radicals and, therefore, oxidative stress. Antioxidants are widely known as free radical scavengers.
Our body is a very wise mechanism - it has a built-in capacity to produce antioxidants internally.
However, due to polluted food that we eat, water that we drink and air that we breath; as well as stress, overwork and negative thinking - the body is frequently overwhelmed with free radicals and other toxins and is unable to fight oxidative stress effectively.
Also, when an antioxidant destroys a free radical, it becomes oxidised itself and has to be, once again, replenished by the body.
So, in addition to internally-produced antioxidants, we are lucky enough to have raw and whole foods as a great source of externally-available nutritional antioxidants.
This is exactly what we are talking about here, fantastic!
Our super-berry powder absolutely teems with nutritional antioxidants which are so important for keeping our bodies cleansed of free radicals and other toxins.
We can loosely classify nutritional antioxidants as essential nutrients and phytonutrients.
Essential nutrients - which at the same time play the role of antioxidants - are a number of vitamins, minerals and trace elements that are very familiar to us.
For example, vitamin C is perhaps the best-known water-soluble antioxidant which leaves the body within a couple of hours of entering it, and needs to be regularly replaced.
Vitamin E, on the other hand, is a fat-soluble antioxidant - it therefore stays in the body for longer than water-soluble antioxidants (ex., vitamin C) but nonetheless needs to be present in sufficient amounts as well. (Ref. 1)
Some other important essential antioxidant nutrients are minerals, for example: copper, selenium and zinc. (Ref. 2)
Phytonutrients are less known to the general public than vitamins and minerals. For a long time, they have been considered to be non-essential; that is, the ones that “we can live without” - unlike, for example, essential nutrients.
But more and more research demonstrates indisputable antioxidant properties of phytonutrients, especially the ones found in berries. (Ref. 3)
There are literally hundreds of different types of phytonutrients.
In fact, the most recent statistics is that around 200,000 phytonutrients - also known as plants’ secondary metabolites - have been officially described so far, and a lot more is still unknown. (Ref. 4)
Phenolic compounds are among the most notable phytonutrients that are present in berries.
Here is a rough classification of berries’ Phenolic Compounds (Ref. 3):
* Hidroxy-cinnamic acids - caffeic, ferulic, p-coumaric,
* Hidroxy-benzoic acids - gallic, vanillic, protocatechuic acids.
* Anthocyanins - cyanidin, pelargonidin, delphinidin, peonidin, mavidin,
* Flavonols - quercetin, myricetin, kaempferol,
* Flavonols (catechins) - catechin, epicatechin, gallocatechin, apigallocatechin.
* Proanthocyanidins, condensed tannins.
* Ellagitannins, hydrolyzable tannins.
Below we show how phytonutrients and other antioxidants support the detoxification process and other biological functions which are so important for strong health.
These days, many researchers refer to berries as “functional foods”, or “medicinal foods”. (Ref. 3)
Here is an interesting definition of functional foods:
A food can be regarded as functional if it is satisfactorily demonstrated to affect beneficially one or more target functions in the body, beyond adequate nutritional effects, thus either improving the general physical conditions or/and decreasing the risk of the generation of diseases. (Ref. 5)
We believe that one major target function that can be improved with the use of our Berry Powder is the continuous detoxification of the body - because it can help with prevention and treatment of chronic illness.
We know that excessive levels of free radicals and other reactive oxidant species (ROS) cause oxidation-related toxicity within the body.
Such toxicity may induce chronic disease, including cancer, cardiovascular disorders, neurological disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, renal disorders, macular degeneration and cataracts, to name a few major conditions. (Ref. 1)
We also know that Berry Antioxidants are able to effectively fight and neutralise free radicals and ROS.
So, detoxification of the body with the help of numerous antioxidants is a major benefit of consuming the Berry Powder on a regular basis.
Thanks to detoxification, prevention and treatment of medical conditions become achievable within a wider framework of nutritional therapy.
Experts point out that “phenolics [found in berries] contribute to the protection against degenerative diseases, and their effects on health have been mostly attributed to their antioxidant properties.” (Ref. 3)
And if antioxidants are able to protect the body from future damage, then they may be potentially used to treat an existing medical condition.
Berries are likely to deliver further benefits related to detoxification.
For example, recent studies suggest that berry phenolics may also act as antimicrobials. This could be very useful in the control of many pathogens, especially in view of recent problems associated with antibiotic resistance. (Ref. 3)
In addition to that, a variety of berry phenolic compounds have demonstrated anti-inflammatory, anti-allergenic, anti-aging, algicidal, anti-mutagenic, anti-cancerogenic properties. (Ref. 3)

We have just seen how rich in healthy nutrition our berries are.
And we know that Continuous Supply of essential nutrients is a necessity for strong health.
Our Berry Powder is an excellent and easy way to top up on totally natural, *food-source* vitamins, minerals and endless antioxidants - all in just 1 to 2 heaped teaspoons per day.
The Berry Powder is a great solution for your daily nutritional needs because, nowadays, *eating healthy* is a real challenge for millions of people around the world, even in economically-advanced areas.
First of all, even if we do eat organic foods, the soils that organic foods grow in have become very depleted of nutrients, after many decades of heavily-industrialised farming. That means that when we consume such foods, we don’t get all the nutrition our bodies require - causing long-term nutrient deficiencies.
Second, industrialised practices of modern-day non-organic farming, with the wide-spread use of harmful chemicals, result in highly-polluted foods. So, when we consume such non-organic foods, harmful chemicals go straight into our blood and cause long-term toxicity.
Third, over-processing and over-cooking of foods destroy nutrition even further, killing off enzymes and whatever else is left of “healthiness” in the foods. Highly processed and cooked foods usually cause long-term acidity within our bodies.
As we know, nutrient deficiencies, toxicity and acidy inside our bodies may lead to undesirable effects, such as long-term medical conditions.
To add to all of the above, essential nutrients and phytonutrients found in berries are easily absorbable and highly bioavailable. There is absolutely no comparison to synthetic, industrially-produced, isolated “multi-vitamins” here.
So, berry nutrition may have a potential to help with prevention and treatment of chronic illness as well.
And all this with just one product - our Berry Powder.
Needless to say that such berry nutrition will help boost our energy levels, in a very natural way.
The whole point of our business is to develop new and uniques mixes of 100% pure organic foods - which will help improve the immune system and metabolism.
Berries are functional foods, and as such they deliver a lot more than just a random collection of nutrients.
They encourage the body to work better and perform all the functions it is supposed to perform, very efficiently.
One of the body’s most important biological functions is, of course, stable energy levels.
Thanks to their extremely high content of phytonutrients, berries provide us with an amazing Antioxidant Boost, keeping our systems detoxed and allowing our energy levels to surge in a clean and favourable environment.
We try to source only the best organic berry & fruit ingredients from around the world.
You will most certainly feel the quality of our Berry Powder from its taste, as well as its quick action.
The antioxidant content among different berries varies greatly - that depends on many factors including a berry’s variety, cultivation conditions and harvest date. (Ref. 6)
Some researchers also report that there is evidence supporting the higher levels of phenolic content and antioxidant capacity of wild berries compared with those domesticated and genetically modified crops. (Ref. 3)
This is not a big surprise because wild berries usually grow in mineral-rich and highly fertile soils that had been forming for many millions of years.
Our Berry Powder has a selection of organic, wild-growing and rare berries.
Many of the berries have also been carefully disinfected for even better quality.
Once you try it, you will likely love it :).
Please note: all raw ingredients for this product are organic, but we cannot claim so on the product's packs because getting an official organic specification would force us to set higher retail prices - and we want to keep them as reasonable as possible.
So, to summarise the most important points and advantages of taking the Berry Powder, we would like to encourage you to take it on a regular basis, for the following benefits:
In other words, the Berry Powder may be especially useful for:
Of course, the synergistic action of many berries is higher than if they were taken on their own, with more new compounds being discovered all the time.
Absolutely any of us will find consumption of the Berry Powder beneficial.
Additionally, specific groups of people such as athletes or people with high physical work loads, will benefit from it even more. People working in urban areas and spending a lot of time in office buildings, with lack of fresh air, may also find the Berry Powder very useful.
The powder can also be a fantastic ingredient in Raw Cooking - a very convenient way to get many different whole berries & fruits in just several small teaspoons.
Please allow us to surprise you in a very positive way!
We want you to FALL IN LOVE with this product - the same way as we are :).
Berry Powder - Fast-Action, High-Impact Food.
Specially for you - just when you need it!
1 portion of Berry Powder contains approximately 6 portions of fresh berries & fruits. As an example, one heaped teaspoon of the powder is equivalent to around 6 teaspoons of raw berries & fruits.
Recommended dosage: 1 to 2 teaspoonfuls of Berry Powder per day.
This is a maintenance daily amount to be taken at any time of the day, with or without food.
For purposes of deeper detoxification, 3 to 4 teaspoonfuls per day can be taken.
Each pack provides 2-3 months supply of the powder, depending on your personal intake.
If Berry Powder is taken in excessive amounts, a slight loosening of bowel movements can occur.
As such, there are no any restrictions or any side effects to taking this product - because it is a pure food, without any additives and preservatives. This product is perfect for consuming on a daily basis - and it is very hard to over-dose on any of its specific nutrients because they are not isolated from each other but come together in the best possible form for the human body.
Berry powder can provide extra support in times of need, for example for period pain relief.
