NUTRITIONAL PROFILE

Blueberries provide is with an outstanding variety of phytonutrients, including stilbenoids like pterostilbene and flavonoids like quercetin, myricetin, and kaempferol.

Blueberry anthocyanins are among the most unique of these phytonutrients and they include cyanidin, malvidin, delphinidin, pelargonidin, peonidin and petunidin.

Blueberries are very good source of vitamin K, vitamin C and manganese as well as a good source of fiber and copper.

COPPER

Effects of deficiency in copper:

- nervous disorder

-aneurysm

-anemia

Copper is the most important catalytic metal. It catalyses the desaturation of fatty acids. It forms part of numerous enzymes, one of the most important cytchromeoxidase. It is an activating element in the respiratory processes of cells. It plays also important role in the hemoglobin metabolism. 

Copper, like magnesium and manganese is indispensable to the activity of vitamin C. The presence of this metal is indispensable for the formation of normal connective tissue. A copper deficiency causes the graying and falling out of hair.

The daily need of copper in human beings has been estimated by some authors at 0.6mg, by others at 2-5mg or again 0.03mg, for every kilo (2.2lb) of weight.

A woman's milk is three times richer in copper and twice as rich in iron as cow's milk, which is very poor in this metal. Milk powders are also very poor and can cause anemia in babies. 

The human body contains 100-125mg of copper, most of which being incorporated into ferments. Human serum contains about 0.1mg for 100ml. This rate increases in infections and vaccinations, in parallel with the formation of antibodies, this metal plays an important part in the phenomena of healing. It increases ten to twenty times the anti-inflammatory action of acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin) and protects the gastric mucous membranes from the irritation the acid.  

As is the case with iron, the child is born with a reserve of copper that must suffice for some months, until its food becomes mixed, since milk is very poor in copper. 

The concentration of copper in the skin of the newborn baby is from five to ten times that in the skin of the adult.

Copper accumulates in the highly active organs of plants, such as young leaves and shoots. Whole unrefined cereals are rich in copper, (grain, germ, bran: 100g (4oz) amply cover our daily need) Whole brown rice contains 15mg of copper per kilo (2.2lb), creamed rice only 3mg. Wheat germ provides 30mg, whole lentils 20mg per kilo.

Disease caused by copper deficiency are less well known in human beings than in animals. It is known, however, that certain digestive orders in elderly people and certain anemias can only be cured by addition of copper. This can be helpful for some sufferers from rheumatism.

MANGANESE

Effects of deficiency:

-defects in mineralization, sterility

-it plays an important part in photosynthesis and reproduction

-in association with vitamin K, an enzyme containing manganese contributes to the coagulation of blood. 

-with chromium, manganese is necessary for the formation of insulin and the normal use of glucose.

-an enzyme responsible for the synthesis of cholesterol contains manganese

-But, cholesterol is the material from which the raw sexual hormones are formed

-that might explain the sterility caused by manganese deficiency

-the human body contains from eleven to twenty milligrams of manganese, of which between 10 and 25% are lost daily and have to be replaced

-this metal is concentrated in the liver, the pancreas, the kidneys and the intestines

-the adult needs five milligrams of manganese per day. These are easily found in green vegetables, fresh fruit, nuts, whole cereals, cocoa, tea.

-Blueberries and Cassis (Black Currant) are particularly rich in manganese.

-The child's need is 0.2mg per kilo (2.2lb) of weight. This ration is not provided either by cow's milk or by white flour.

-this metal is hardly toxic at all. Deficiencies may be due to defective resorption.

-it is very scarce in food of animal origin.

-a single food ration of manganeses before the fourteenth day of pregnancy, but not later, is enough to prevent ataxia from appearing (Medical Tribune, Jg 1 n, 30, 1968 L.S. Hurley). Manganese is, in fact, indispensable in the formation of the organs regulating equilibrium. Semi-circular canals and otoliths of the internal ear

- it facilitates the metabolism of the fats in the liver. Incorporated with arginase, it is active in the synthesis of urea.

-it activates alkaline phosphatase, arginase, pepsin and trypsin, facilitating digestion. It is excreted through the bile.

-in association with vitamin K, an enzyme containing manganese contributes to the coagulation of blood.

-with chromium, manganese is necessary for the formation of insulin and the normal use of glucose.

-an enzyme responsible for the synthesis of cholesterol contains manganese.

-But, cholesterol is the material from which the raw sexual hormones are formed. That might explain the sterility caused by manganese deficiency.

-the human body contains from eleven to twenty milligrams of manganese of which between 10 and 25% are lost daily and have to be replaced.
