BERRYBEAT contains hawthorn berry, blueberry, raspberry and cranberry to help support liver and heart health which in turn contributes to your overall health.
Your heart and liver exist in a symbiotic relationship:
- Your heart circulates blood throughout your body, bringing food and oxygen to your cells, and carrying oxygen-depleted blood cells and toxins away.
- Your liver steps in to remove toxins and clean your blood before it is returned to your heart and then the lungs for more oxygen. This cycle repeats itself continually.
If your liver is not functioning properly, it cannot effectively and efficiently clean the blood delivered to it by the heart. Your liver also helps regulate your blood cholesterol levels. If your liver is not functioning properly, it may lead to clogged arteries around the heart, making your heart work harder and less efficiently.
Wholesome plant foods like hawthorn berry, blueberry, raspberry and cranberry support the healthy functioning of both your heart and liver. A strong and healthy heart keeps your cells replenished and vibrant. A strong, healthy liver keeps your blood clean and fully functional. Together, these two vital organs support every cell in your body.
BERRYBEAT helps you provide your heart and liver with the nutrients they need in order to continue functioning well.

Main ingredients in BERRYBEAT
1. Hawthorn berry
Hawthorn berries are a treasure trove of beneficial phytochemicals, with anthocyanin-type pigments, choline, citric acid, cratagolic acid, bioflavonoids, flavonoid glycosides, tannins, glavone, glycosides, inositol, purines, saponins, tartaric acid, minerals and vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, B12 and C.
Studies on hawthorn berry show evidence that the synergistic antioxidant effects of these various compounds may help improve conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, chest pain (angina), atherosclerosis (formation of plagues), and congestive heart failure.
Both animal and laboratory studies also found that hawthorn contains active antioxidant compounds that scavenge free radicals. Free radicals occur naturally in the body, but environmental toxins, such as cigarette smoke and air pollution, can increase free radicals as well. Antioxidants found in hawthorn can neutralise free radicals and may reduce some of the damage they cause.
A study in the journal Primary Care found that “hawthorn leaf, flower and fruit extract was found to provide a significant benefit in symptom control and physiologic outcomes as an adjunctive treatment for chronic heart failure”.
Modern scientific methods have just begun to demonstrate the benefits of hawthorn leaves, flowers and berries, but indigenous peoples the world over have known them for centuries and used this important plant to help support cardiovascular health.
2. High antioxidant foods: blueberry, raspberry, and cranberry
Free radicals are produced naturally in your body through the metabolism of amino acids and fats. Free radicals also enter your body from many outside sources and damage healthy cells, alter the structure of DNA, leading to mutations and possibly cancer. This oxidative stress on your body’s cells can lead to many diseases such as atherosclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, macular degeneration, diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis.
Antioxidant is a molecule that can slow down or prevent oxidation –a chemical reaction that can damage cells — by donating their extra electrons in order to neutralise the negative effects of free radicals without damaging cells.
As you age, you produce less of your own antioxidants. And then there are some antioxidants that your body can’t produce but need to get from foods you eat, for example vitamin C and E.
To get the benefits of antioxidants, you must eat whole foods that naturally contain these antioxidants. The additional phytochemicals in whole plant foods work in conjunction with the antioxidants so that the antioxidants can work effectively.
Therefore, consuming antioxidant pills like vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin C, beta-carotene, selenium, lycopene, resveratrol and lutein doesn’t give you the same benefits. These pills are highly refined, concentrated, often synthetic, and don’t demonstrate any effectiveness.
