Yumberry is a unique Chinese fruit, which has been around about 6000 years. Often compared with pomegranate and raspberry, yumberry is high in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals; including vitamin C, thiamine, riboflavin and carotene. These fruits have been used to aid saliva secretion, clearing up hard digested food in the stomach, helping with stomach aches and dispelling summer heat. it is also shown to prevent sugars from being converted to fat in the body.
The rare compound called Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins (OPC) found in yumberry have shown to help with many conditions. Humans cannot produce OPC by ourselves, thus it is essential to obtain from fruit and vegetables.
OPC is a water soluble pigment that changes with the acidity or alkalinity of the cells. It is known to fight the free radicals and help with preventing the aging process.
OPC also helps to reduce blood pressure by restricting enzyme activity and is known to protect the cardiovascular system. Free radicals harden the blood vessels and oxidation of LDL causes atherosclerosis or cerebral infraction. OPC can repair damaged cells and nurtures those that are in need of care.
Free radicals can cause inflammation by attacking connective tissue of joints. Because OPC neutralizes the effects of the free radicals it can help people with arthritis and other inflammations.
Diabetes Mellitus is caused by free radical damage and erosion to the pancreas. As they destroy the normal secretion of the pancreas, insulin decreases and contributes to the forming of Dabetes mellitus. OpC helps to make the blood vessels within the pancreas strong and flexible ensuring that insulin secretion is increased and blood sugar is metabolized.
OPC can also help preventing oxidation of the visual protein and hinder cataract formation, which can be caused by free radicals, stirred up by radiation such as high intensity ultraviolet rays and computer displays.
