Wild Blueberries are one of my favorite ingredients in my new Superfood Treats. If you've seen my Kickstarter video you know I created these treats based on the foods that helped me recover from cancer last year.
Most people don't know a lot about the Wild Blueberry and easily confuse it with the larger, cultivated blueberry. The difference between the two is like the difference between wild and farmed salmon.
They are not easily found in the produce department of your grocery store but pretty easy to find in the frozen section.
Vimergy also makes a great Wild Blueberry powder.
1. Wild Blueberries have the highest proportion of anti-oxidants of any food on earth.
When I was in bed recovering last year from an infection related to my cancer, I was listening to a lot of podcasts when I came upon the Medical Medium. He's a huge fan of Wild Blueberries and I know from my own experience, that anti-oxidants can really boost my own energy. So I started adding them to my smoothies, tossing in a tablespoon each morning into my dog's food.
Within weeks I was out of bed and able to work again.
2. Recent research has unearthed some promising findings that Wild Blueberries may help protect against certain types of cancer. Read this.
3. Wild Blueberry may help remove heavy metals. Every day we are exposed to heavy metals in our food and in the air we breathe. The effects of heavy metal poisoning have been linked to chronic health issues. Certain foods like Wild Blueberries may bind to heavy metals and help remove them through the digestive process.

Bottom line - Give your dogs Sally Snacks Superfood Treats with Wild Blueberries and they just might be able to start driving themselves to the park!
