A little berry with so many protective nutrients and phytochemicals

Studies are suggesting that Lingonberries may promote 

√ healthy gut bacteria, 

√ healthy heart 

√ blood sugar control.

Lingonberries contain:

√ a natural source of vitamin E (α-tocopherol)

√ fibers

√ phytochemicals (complex polyphenols e.g., anthocyanins, catechins, epicatechins, procyanidins and flavonols)

The lingonberry is rich in many different types of polyphenols, the potential health properties of which are being researched intensively. It also contains lignans, proanthocyanidins and resveratrol.

 

Lingonberry contains plentiful organic acids, vitamins C, provitamin A as beta carotene, B vitamins (B1, B2 and B3, and the elements potassium. calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. In addition to these nutrients, they also contain healthy phytochemicals combatting the aging process.

The seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids.In addition, lingonberry contains the short-chained proanthocyanidines and is recognized to have protective properties against urinary tract and infections.

Our lingonberry products are hand picked in the clean, Northern nature of Lapland and the Arctic region. Lingonberries mature late and are hand picked at the end of season, from August and until the end of September. The unique flavour of lingonberry is sharp and a little sour.  Lingonberry is a healthy berry because it contains a lot of flavonoids and lignans, substantially more that other berries.

Consume 5 g (approximately 2 teaspoons) per day.
Add to smoothies, yogurt or oatmeal, or liquid of your choice.

The uniqueness of the berries grown on higher latitudes is that they due to the long summer nights, with midnight sun, have a much shorter ripening time than other berries. The result is sweeter berries with exceptionally high levels of anthocyanins.

Lingonberry juice improves endothelium-dependent vasodilatation of mesenteric arteries in spontaneously hypertensive rats in a long-term intervention

Phenolic compounds of berries, fruits and vegetables affect vascular health. Endothelium-dependent vasodilatation has an important role in blood pressure development by controlling the vascular tone. Endothelial cells produce and release various relaxing and contracting factors, like nitric oxide (NO), cyclo-oxygenase (COX)-derived prostanoids and endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF). The purpose of this study was to investigate whether 8 weeks treatment with Finnish berry juices, cranberry (Vaccinium oxycoccos), lingonberry (Vaccinium vitis-idaea) and blackcurrant (Ribes nigrum) affects blood pressure and vascular function of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). After 8 weeks treatment the mesenteric arteries of the rats were taken for vascular reactivity studies. Lingonberry treatment normalized the impaired endothelium-dependent relaxation seen in the cranberry, blackcurrant and control rats. In the arteries of lingonberry treated rats the relaxation was partly due to NO, but also dependent on EDHF. It can be concluded that long-term lingonberry juice treatment improves endothelium-dependent vasodilatation of SHR.
