Known as the “fruit of longevity” & the “fruit of vision”, haskap berries have been consumed by the indigenous Ainu people from Hokkaido, Japan for centuries & are proposed to contribute to their life longevity.
From heart health & brain function to gut health & the immune system, including haskap in one’s regime can bring about tremendous benefits to well being.
Studies have shown powerhouse antioxidant rich haskap berries can increase the feel good chemicals in our brain & heighten mood, improve heart health by reducing oxidative stress & inflammation, protect the cells lining the gut by controlling inflammation & help support the growth of healthy bacteria.
Haskap has also shown to support eye health, aid in brain function, help protect skin cells from damage & may improve skin texture and appearance.
Haskap also has higher contents of vitamin C, calcium, iron, phosphorus and potassium than blueberries, oranges, grapes & apples making this fruit an amazing source of naturally rich minerals.
Also known as the honeyberry, an edible blue honeysuckle, it’s native to northern hemisphere countries including Canada, Japan & Russia, with the latin name Lonicera caerulea.
Fruit can be tart to sweet with a flavor unique to itself but that some describe as a cross between raspberry, currant and blueberry.
Haskaps require cross-pollination with an unrelated cultivar that blooms at the same time. These haskap berries have been wildcrafted & include Aurora, Borealis & Honey bee cultivars.
Modern day haskaps were developed from the Japanese parent plant by the Fruit Program at the University of Saskatchewan. Through extensive breeding, the U of S was able to produce an ideal shrub for urban gardens bearing delicious edible fruit. These Canadian bred cultivars are now the parent plants of the haskap shrubs growing in gardens throughout the world.
Take one dropperful daily as needed.
