We try to source only the best organic berry ingredients from around the world.
You will most certainly feel the quality of whole berries from their taste, as well as the product's 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.
Whole Berry Mix has several wild-growing and rare berries. 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.
Here are some benefits of taking Whole Berry Mix on a regular basis:
1 portion of Whole Berry Mix contains approximately 6 portions of fresh berries.
Recommended dosage: 1 to 2 tablespoonfuls of whole berries 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 tablespoonfuls per day can be taken.
One of my personal favourite ways to use Whole Berries:
Put 1 teaspoonful of the berries (except gojis and incan berries) in a glass of red wine, 2 - 3 hours before consumption. It makes for a lovely drink with chewy, super-tasty berries!
Each pack provides 2-3 months supply of the whole berries, depending on your personal intake.
If berries are taken in excessive amounts, a slight loosening of bowel movements can occur.
As such, there are no any restrictions or major 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.
Occasionally, especially when taken on an empty stomach, our whole berries may cause a slight nausea - as a detoxifying side effect. This is normal and should disappear as your body gets adjusted to the health effects of this product.
Our beautiful retail tins are widely recyclable - please don't throw them away as rubbish, but re-use or recycle them :).
We have deliberately made all the product labels peelable. You can easily remove all of them from your tin and place your own labels depending on what you are planning to store in the tin. And ... thanks very much for being such a super-healthy, super environmentally-friendly consumer!
Our aim has always been, and always will be, to offer a range of finest-quality, fast-acting, high-impact combinations of highly nutritious foods to our customers.
This means that we procure only the best raw ingredients for our products.
As an example, many of our berries grow in the wild, in the best mineral-rich soils.
For example, this is the case with the Bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) which is included in this Whole Berry Mix product. Bilberry is a wild version of blueberries. The market price of dried bilberries is around 3 times higher than that of common dried blueberries.
We also try to include rare berries which aren't yet widely available, ex. Elderberry.
All of our ingredients are also certified organic.
Additionally, we try to use stylish yet recyclable packaging. Our retail tins are meant to not only give you an aesthetic pleasure but also provide an extra storage space for your kitchen. You can peel the labels off each tin and re-use the tins an endless number of times. Otherwise, you can simply re-cycle your tin, without any problem.
These are the major factors that determine retail prices for our products.
Whole Berry Mix is a sister product of our other branded product - Berry Powder (aka Powdered Berry Mix).
