Eclectic Institute Black Raspberry has been part of Eclectic's freeze-dried botanical line since 2003, when promising research began emerging on its remarkable health benefits. Numerous studies have now confirmed that freeze-dried black raspberries promote the health of cells in the esophagus and colon exposed to mutagens, and also a myriad of other benefits.
Research has shown that black raspberries exhibit chemoprotective properties that maintain healthy tissue and function.* Black raspberries also exhibit beneficial modulation of gene expression, support healthy mucosal lining of the digestive tract and enhance liver Phase 2 detoxification.
Black raspberry's many health benefits derive from its high anthocyanin and ellagic acid content, as well as other phenolic components, including quercitin and ferulic acid. The berry's ellagic acid content is highest in its seeds, and by grinding the freeze-dried seeds, the ellagic acid that would otherwise be largely unavailable is released.
