Become wiser on blueberries
You definitely know them. The small, round, blue and delicious berries that can be enjoyed as a fresh snack or used in tasteful recipes. But did you know that there are more than 400 different varieties of blueberries? They all grow in the northern hemisphere and vary in both color, size and taste.
Blueberries grow on shrubs and are ripe and ready to be picked when they almost fall off the bush by themselves. It is at this point that the blueberries we use are harvested in the Swedish forests.
The wild Nordic blueberries
The blueberries are peering out from the bushes in July and August. The small, round and deep blue berries with the distinctive taste are extremely well known and loved here in the Nordic countries. Blueberries can in many places be picked in wild nature, where wind and weather have made the berries robust and given them lots of flavor when ripe in late summer. Look for them on the heath or in a clearing in the woods when you go for a walk.
The berries we use in Collagen Beauty Remedy, are picked in the wild in Sweden, where they grow in the huge natural areas in the mountains. After harvesting, the berries andre dried and dehydrated, after which they are pulverized and mixed in our sought after beauty formula, Collagen Beauty Remedy. We use an advantageous blend of three different well known blue berries, all of which have a high content of the antitoxidant vitamin C: blackcurrant (50%), blueberries (30%) and aronia (20%).
We use 600 grams of fresh berries per 100 grams of collagen powder. When the fresh and wild berries are dried and pulverized, they become a concentrated powder filled with vitamin C, which tastes nice fresh, and natural. When you enjoy a daily serving of Collagen Beauty Remedy, you get 2000 mg of berry mixture and 5000 mg of hydrolyzed marine collagen.
Therefore, wild blueberries are part of Collagen Beauty Remedy
Why do we use wild blueberries in our Collagen Beauty Remedy instead of conventionally cultivated berries? By getting our blueberries from Sweden we can reduce transport as the blueberries do not have to be transported across the globe. The wild berries and blueberries in general are also, as mentioned earlier, a good source of both dietary fiber and vitamin C.
The benefits of the blueberries
In addition to the delicious flavour that blueberries have, there are also some other benefits of eating the small berries - both fresh, but also in the dried and powdered form in which they are found in Collagen Beauty Remedy. Blueberries are healthy and a good source of vitamin C. Other benefits of blueberries and the berry collection we use is that they:
- can be used in a lot of exciting and delicious recipes, e.g. Beauty Remedy Nice Cream and Collagen overnight oat
- is a perfect supplement to a healthy and varied diet
- is a good source of dietary fiber as the berry mixture contains 30 g of dietary fiber per 100 grams of berries
- contains antioxidants
- can be picked in nature
The wild blueberries way to Collagen Beauty Remedy
Before the wild blueberries from Sweden can be used in our collagen mixture, they must go through a processing process and quality testing.
The blueberries are picked and frozen to -18 degrees. Then they are transported to the place where they dried. Drying takes place at 42-45 degrees on shelves where they are not mixed with other berries. It takes approx. 1-2 days before the blueberries are completely dry and ready to be powdered.
The powdered blueberries are tested, mixed with other berries (if the recipe says so) and eventually packed, ready to be sent on and get into our collagen variant Collagen Beauty Remedy.
Collagen Beauty Remedy - Collagen with vitamin C
Do you want a nice collagen powder with vitamin C for extra support for your body then Collagen Beauty Remedy from Vild Nord is the right choice. Collagen Beauty Remedy contains three selected ingredients that together give you and your skin the best conditions for staying beautiful:
Marine collagen from wild caught North Atlantic cod is the core of our collagen products but in Collagen Beauty Remedy we have added beautiful powder of wild Swedish blueberries, acerola, aronia and blackcurrant, as well as wild-harvested seaweed.
The powdered berries are a food state source of the good vitamin C, which contributes to a normal formation of collagen that affects normal functioning skin, as well as to protect the cells from oxidative stress. It is also the mix of the delicious and good berries that gives the collagen powder its beautiful burgundy red color as well as the mild taste of berries. The berry mix in Collagen Beauty Remedy is: 14 % blackcurrant, 9 % blueberries, 6 % aronia and 5 % acerola.
The wild-harvested seaweed from the coast of North Scotland is a natural source of iodine. Iodine helps to maintain normal skin, a normal production of thyroid hormones and a normal thyroid function.
Marine collagen from wild cod has a complete amino acid profile, which means you get all 20 amino acids in one product - both the essential and the non essential amino acids. The essential amino acids are the ones that your body cannot form and which you therefore depend on getting through a healthy and varied diet or by supplementing your daily routine with Collagen Beauty Remedy.
