I ordered those blueberry capsules for improving my intake in fruits thinking that a concentrated powder might replace partially the absence of fresh fruits (very expensive ones).
Turns out that the powder in the capsules is extremely packed and dried (I opened them to drop the powder in my smoothies) and I am assuming that they have been stored a long time. So not very sure if the quality is still here....

Does it really do anything?
Who knows? But it doesn't appear to be causing any problems.

Great Nutritional Supliment
I cannot eat fresh blueberries often due to the tiny seeds.
These Wild Blueberry caps enable me to add the nutritional benefits of blueberries to my diet without the seeds.
Also, my M.D. advised me to use them daily.
Several of my neighbors have also added them to their daily supplement routine since they have heard how much they help me.

reason for taking this
This is easy to take and much more economical then buying bluberries

higher dose needed
I do feel the effects of blueberry supplementation but only with regular use and with at least a double dose than the one recommended on the label

Hope this is working
I am taking this extract as blueberries are supposed to be wonderful anti-oxidants, however, there is almost no way to "see" what results I am actually getting. It does not seem to have any adverse side effects and I am presuming it is supplementing my diet to get more blueberry benefits into it. Blood workups suggest that I am not deficient in any critical areas while taking this.

Blueberries are an excellent source of free radical fighting antioxidants. One capsule provides the antioxidant content of many blueberries at a fraction of the cost without sugar, and my memory has also improved the last three years.

Anthocyanins are important, but this isn't a lot
From what I found in blueberry studies, each of these pills is roughly equivalent to 5 grams of fresh blueberries. That might be enough to do you good, but it isn't a lot.

I seem to not notice it's effects. I would only guess that it has improved my overall health in a way that is not apparently discernible

best product for your money
I have researched on blueberry extract pills and the information was very confusing because each company gives you different information so you can't really know if you are comparing apples with apples. I finally bought this and tried it and bought another brand that supposed to be about the same potency and tried that. Swanson's blueberry extract is definitely a much more superior product, hands down and costs much less than the other brand.

Someone told me that blueberries can help promote healthy brain function. This product has helped me alot. Forget about the recommended dosage. take 2 capsules 3 times a day and you will feel the difference. It has naturally occuring antioxidants and phytonutrients that seem to do the trick. the best part is that this little blue pill has a sweetness to it.

I have found that this product delivers over the long haul. No immediate effects, but as time passes I have noticed improvement in the areas this product professes to aid.

Early results were disappointing. This is no "quick cure," but as time went on, this 73 year-old professional experienced a noticeable (and welcome) return of memory functions and clarity of thought. I had used blueberries for some time, but often had to miss my daily portion. I decided to strengthen the effect by using this supplement. I am very pleased with the result. I still use the berries, but I believe my recovery has been more consistent since I have added this product to my nutritional routine.
