Touted as one of the healthiest foods you can put in your mouth, blueberries are classified as a super fruit rich in antioxidants and vitamin C. As we’ve been told by celebrity doctors and health gurus alike, the darker the fruit’s skin is, the better it is for you. Blueberries are abundant in summertime and easy to pop like candy, but during the frigid winter months, they’re hard to find fresh. A Canadian company has now made this healthy fruit easy to ingest and accessible all-year round. Called Country Magic blueberry farm and based in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, they’ve created a 100% blueberry juice without any additives. Aptly named ‘bloo juice’, each bottle packs about 600 blueberries and that’s it — no added sugar, perservatives or colour.
In February, bloo will make an appearance at this year’s Bust a Move for Breast Health event for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. Not only is boo a sponsor, but each participant will receive bloo juice to get them dancing and moving all day for the charitable cause.
It’s also a versatile drink that can be combined with other ingredients to make fresh smoothies, dips, or consumed entirely on its own. With so many health drinks on the market, bloo is unique in that it’s completely natural and only includes the one ingredient you need that aids in maintaining heart and brain health. And since it’s a Canadian product, it can only mean great things.
