In our products we use only handpicked and wild-crafted berries from pristine forests in Finland and Estonia.
51% of Estonia’s territory and around 65% of Finland’s total land area is covered in forests. Finland has the highest number of the world’s largest certified organic forest berry areas.
Northern conditions are characterized by long days with much light and low temperatures during the growing season. It has been chimed that herbs and berries grown in the north are stronger tasting compared to those of southern origin.
Also, due to the chilly climate, the forest and garden berries growing in Nordic countries are especially rich in nutrients compared to the cultivated varieties. Due to their high nutrient content, powders made from Nordic berries can, therefore, be considered as a true superfood.
For example, wild blueberries (Vaccinium myrtillus) contain several times more flavonoids and four times as much anthocyanin than cultivated blueberries (Vaccinium angustifolium, Vaccinum corymbosum).
Natural anthocyanins have many biomedical functions. Numerous scientific studies link anthocyanin to the prevention of cardiovascular disorders, age-induced oxidative stress, inflammatory responses, and various degenerative diseases.
Some studies have also shown that berry anthocyanins improve neuronal and cognitive brain functions and ocular health. Our wild berry products bring you all these good nutrients.
