Common name :
Wild blueberry, Narrow-leaved blueberrys
Part of the plant used :
The wild blueberry, also known as the narrow-leaved blueberry (Vaccinium angustifolium), is a fruit native to North America and belongs to the Ericaceae family, like the cranberry or the blueberry.
The wild blueberry was consumed by the indigenous peoples of Canada for the beneficial properties of this small, blue, fleshy fruit, and used to make blueberry paste.
This berry contains vitamin C as well as numerous polyphenols (anthocyanosides and flavonoids) which give it antioxidant properties.
Several studies have highlighted the positive effects of polyphenols on the brain thanks to their bioavailability and their ability to cross the blood-brain barrier. Polyphenols are notably involved in improving working memory, learning capacity and cognition. They also contribute to the protection against oxidative damage generated by free radicals in neurons as well as to the improvement of neuronal plasticity, the brain's capacity to remodel itself and generate new neurons.
Blueberries contain polyphenols which have many health benefits.
