Yumberries have the look of a juicy raspberry and come in 100 different varieties ranging in color from purple and red to pink and white.
Their flavor is a cross between a pomegranate and a cranberry, and their texture is something like an orange. Yumberry is a natural source of antioxidants, which give them their color and added health benefits.
Yum-berry is a healthy fruit and natural source of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals; including vitamin C, thiamine, riboflavin and carotene that have been used since ancient times in China for medicinal purposes. This appetizing super fruit may support the production of saliva secretion, digestive health and dispel summer heat. It will also may support the body's ability to prevent sugars from being converted to fat in the body.
Free radicals cause oxidation in the cells which may promote aging and disease. The yumberry is a source of polynutrients and oligomeric proanthocyanidins which may support the body's ability to fight the free radicals. These polynutrients give the fruit their bright red color. The yumberry contains OPC, or Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins, water soluble pigment that may possibly change with the acidity or alkalinity of the cells. This naturally occurring component may support a healthy aging process. Humans cannot produce OPC by themselves, thus it is obtained from fruit and vegetables.
OPC also helps to support healthy blood pressure by restricting enzyme activity and is known to protect the cardiovascular system. Free radicals may harden the blood vessels and oxidation of LDL causes atherosclerosis or even cerebral infarction. OPC may possibly repair damaged cells and nourishes those that are in need of care.
The eyes are sensitive organs and easily damaged by free radical stirred up by radiation. The high intensity ultraviolet rays from sunlight, and radiation damage caused by computer displays, cause damage to the retina and destroying visual crystals. OPCs prevent oxidation of the visual crystal protein and hinder cataract formation.
The fruit is only harvested for three weeks a year between June and July. Nevertheless, according to the New York Times, there are twice as many acres of yumberry trees in China as there are apple orchards in the United States. Further, because the trees have a high tolerance to pests and diseases, they are usually grown without pesticides or chemicals.
