A recent article on massey.ac.nz highlights a study conducted by Massey University PhD graduate Dr. Janyawat Vuthijumnonk where blueberries could help fight breast cancer.
Dr. Vuthijumnonk has found evidence that consumption of blueberries in animals has a 50% lower rate or mammary tumours. Although the research at this stage has only been done on animals, it may indicate the consumption of blueberries could lead to a better chance of healthier breast tissue in humans.
Research conducted by the American institute for cancer research highlights the benefits of components found in blueberries.
“Vitamin C protects cells’ DNA by trapping free radicals and inhibiting formation of carcinogens.”
“Blueberry extract and anthocyanins, as well as ellagic acid and the urolithins that form from it, decrease free radical damage to DNA that can lead to cancer. They also decrease growth and stimulate self-destruction of mouth, breast, colon and prostate cancer cells.”
“Pterostilbene increases self-destruction of lung, stomach, pancreatic and breast cancer cells.”
“Dietary fiber reduces cells’ exposure to cancer-causing substances, and healthful gut bacteria use it to produce short-chain fatty acids that protect colon cells.”
One of our satisfied customers had this to say about Mamaku Blueberry Juice:
I have lymphoma skin cancer and my specialist has informed me that if I get to the next stage – when they come up and do not disappear – I will be facing radiation or chemotherapy. I took 200ml of blueberry juice a day and noticed a marked difference within two days. In fact they [the lymphoma] had disappeared completely. I also have a lot more energy and feel great within myself. The blueberry juice is a super food and has done wonders for me. - Marlene Sands *

Not just great for fighting lymphoma cancer
Blueberries are one of nature’s “super fruits” – packed with micro nutrients that have also helped many of our customers with:
- Kidney / renal failure
- Bladder infection
Our miracle juice is also delicious served cold by itself or topped up with lemonade to make a light summer drink. Alternatively, you can also serve it with hot water as a satisfying Blueberry tea.
With the support of Technology New Zealand, we commissioned a research project in to the benefits of nature’s goodness in blueberry juice with the help of Massey University and their Professor of Post Harvest Technology, Julian Heyes.
