It's hard to pick up a magazine or open your lap top without seeing a news story about the powerful, health-giving benefits of blueberries. Why? These tiny blueberries are packed with a powerful phytonutrient known anthocyanins – a natural compound that is actually responsible for giving blueberries their deep rich color.
But this same natural compound can also help you get pregnant naturally!
Indeed, this powerful natural chemical helps reduce the impact of inflammation body-wide and in doing so benefits nearly every step involved in getting pregnant. This includes ovulation - making and ovulating healthy eggs - helping sperm and egg meet so conception can occur, keeping your fallopian tubes clear for the easy transport of your embryo to your uterus, and finally, keeping the lining of your uterus healthy so that your implantation and your pregnancy can be healthy and strong.
And if that were not enough, studies show that adding just a half cup of blueberries to your daily diet can help lower cholesterol, fight high blood pressure, reduce the risk of memory loss and brain motor function disorders, and even protect you from cancer!
That said, it's also important to note that not all blueberries are alike.
Although all varieties offer health and fertility advantages, there is now signficant evidence to suggest that organically grown blueberries may pack a significantly greater phytonutrient punch, and offer greater antioxidant protection than blueberries that are grown in the conventional way.
Moreover, scientists have also discovered that where blueberries are grown – particularly the area of the world, and the climate - can also impact the nutritional content of these fruits.
Among those blueberries offering the biggest bang for your nutritional buck are wild berries grown in Alaska. According to research conducted by National Institutes of Health scientist Maureen McKenzie, PhD, thanks to certain genetic adaptations, the Alaskan blueberry is able to thrive even in the harsh climate of the frozen tundra. Not coincidentally, these adaptations involved a dramatic increase in natural antioxidant production – up to 7 times that found in blueberries grown in warmer climates. And that extra protection is passed on to all those who eat the berries!
If you can't get your hands on Alaskan blueberries, there are blueberry supplements – most notably Aurora Blue – made from pure Alaskan berries . Even with processing, it still maintains an ORAC score (the measure of a products antioxidant potential ) four times that found in wild Maine blueberries, and seven times that of blueberries grown in most other locations.
