What Are Anthocyanins: Comes from the Greek word meaning Dark Blue.  Food plants rich in anthocyanins include the Haskap, blueberry, raspberry, black rice, and black soybean, among many others that are red, blue, purple, or black.

What are Flavonoids: Flavonoids are best known for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory health benefits as well as the support of the cardiovascular and nervous systems. Because they also help support detoxification of potentially tissue-damaging molecules, their intake has often, although not always, been associated with decreased risk of certain types of cancers, including lung and breast cancer.
