haskap: fruit of longevity
The haskap berry has high levels of antioxidants, up to three times that of a high bush blueberry, making it a formidable antioxidant superfood helping us to prevent heart diseases, stroke, cancers, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, rheumatoid arthritis as well as neurodegenerative diseases.
The phenolic content in the Haskap berry is directly associated with its colour and flavour. In contrast to blueberries and most types of red grapes which have a white flesh, the Haskap berry has a flesh that is reddish-purple. That means it also has high phenol content throughout and not just the skin. This inherently gives the haskap a higher antioxidant score and therefore superior health benefits when compared to most berries.
