Olallieberry is rich in beneficial properties:
- ANTOCIANI: they are natural antioxidants that protect against brain aging by maintaining healthy brain cells. This leads to greater protection against degenerative brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease.

- VITAMIN K: known to decrease the risk of thickened arteries and osteoporosis. It has also been shown to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, kidney stones and to have a positive effect on diabetes prevention. Vitamin K is an essential vitamin for maintaining health.
