BLEUBERET’S Health & Wellness Philosophy*

There is no magic answer to perfect health, but you can control living a healthy lifestyle. Eating a well balanced diet, getting a good night’s sleep and regular exercise can greatly enhance your general health and sense of well-being. Research abounds in upping the amounts of plant-based food consumed and lessening refined sugars, processed foods and animal products as important factors in keeping yourself healthy. (MedicalNewsToday.com sited 10/28/19)

In addition to a well-balanced diet and healthy lifestyle approach, it is believed that the consumption of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory rich foods can aid in the prevention of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, as well as reduce the symptoms of arthritis, and combat acute inflammation in the body due to illness, infection or injury that may adversely affect the immune system.

*We highly recommend that you undertake your own research and consult your medical support network to ascertain the health benefits of a diet high in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory rich compounds that is most beneficial to you.
