A recent message looked at some of the health benefits of blackberries.
Blackberries, Native to North America, are harvested from May through August and are both sweet and astringent. Traditionally known to help strengthen the pancreas and stabilize blood sugar levels, blueberries serve to offset the high energy demands and sugar content of the summer fruit harvest.
As I was about to send out that message, when a note was forwarded to me from my long time friend and health care provider, Joe Spano, MD.
When Joe gives me a health message, I listen. His resume shows why.
Joe attended Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans from 1959 – 1963. His internship was done at Mixed Medical and Surgery; Kings County hospital center, Brooklyn, New York. His Medical Residency was at Veterans Administration Hospital and Tulane University School of Medicine, New Orleans. He had special training at Resident in Clinical Cardiology under John H. Phillips M.D., Chief of Cardiology, Veterans Administration Hospital, New Orleans.
Joe was an instructor in Physical Diagnosis at Tulane University School of Medicine. He was a Research Fellow in Medicine for gastroenterology at Harvard University, Thorndike Memorial Laboratory, Boston City Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts. He served in the Military from 1967 to 1969 in the USAF, 3560th USAF Hospital, Webb AFB, Texas; Chief of Internal Medicine; Chief of Professional Services; Chief of Laboratory Services; Chief of Radiology.
Joe has honors, membership and diplomat to American Board of Internal Medicine, Harvard Trained Gastroenterologist, American Board of Anti-Aging Medicine, Phi Beta Pi Medical Fraternity. He is listed in ” Best Doctors in America“, America’s Top Physicians (Research Council of America) and was chief of staff at Naples Community Hospital.
So when Joe sends me information about health, I take it seriously. Here is what Joe sent:
I have taken the liberty of sending you a few bottles of blueberry extracts that
the business I am involved with provides. Try them and see what you think.
One droperful is equivalent to 10 cups of the blueberry juice. It requires this much to get the various health benefits that have been ascribed to blueberries.
The convenience is a major advantage, I add the extracts to my water,
oatmeal, and cereals.
One still has the benefit of the super food berries, even in
the off season.
This is not to indicate that fresh berries are not better and that
in Ecuador those fresh juices aren’t more delicious and nutritious.”
The bottle of this blueberry extra says is can help:
#1: Support cognitive function
#2: Concentration and memory
#3: Maintain eye and retina health
#4: Promote urinary tract health
#5: Support healthy glucose metabolism
The formula contains:
Blueberry powder (whole fruit) 65 mg †
Bilberry extract (fruit) 20 mg †
Elderberry extract (fruit) 20 mg †
Pomegranate extract (fruit) 20 mg †
Proprietary blend of Lo Han
extract (fruit) and Stevia extract (leaf) 20 mg †
Blueberry extract (juice) 15 mg †
purified water, vegetable glycerin, natural
flavor, ascorbic acid
This extract helps fight free radicals and is an excellent addition to weight loss
programs. Plus it provides immune support.
I am not selling this but will be trying it myself. If you have questions contact Joe Spano at email@example.com
Until next message, may blueberries help you avoid the blues.
While much of the U.S. burns up this summer we enjoy cool nights (mid 50s) sleeping under blankets without screens (translation-there are no mosquitoes here). Rarely does it reach 80 during the day and if it does a quick dip in the creek cools us right down. We have farmhouses, cottages, cabins and cottages you can stay in and enjoy. Rockers on the front porch (best for watching fireflies at night and eating sunny breakfasts), quiet pools to chill watermelon, waterfalls in which to soak, horses to chase, chickens and ducks to feed and we would enjoy meeting you.
Everyone who comes wants to come back and right now we can treat you to some fresh blackberry pie!
We have a space left for you to join us this August 15-17, to stay at our farm and learn about intuitive investing at Susan Rotman’s business intuition course.
