Understanding Blushwood Berry and EBC-46

Understanding Blushwood Berry and EBC-46

Hey, Sarah here.

I’ve been doing a bit of research into the market and found something very alarming.

There are Blushwood berry supplements floating around with brands, highlighting (and rightly so) properties like:

  • Rich in antioxidants
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Immune-boosting
  • Skin healing

And of course, the main one – its anti-cancer potential.

They’re almost correct, but let’s get this straightened out…

Understanding Blushwood Berry and EBC-46

Clinical research HAS indeed shown cancer-prevention properties in these berries, and we have firsthand experience of customers getting amazing results. But here’s the critical detail – the potent compound responsible for these benefits is EBC-46, which is found solely in the seed of the Blushwood berry, not the fruit.

The Misleading Marketing of Blushwood Berry Products

Despite the science, many brands are selling products derived from the fruit of the Blushwood berry, marketing them as if they offer the same benefits. This is misleading and potentially harmful. Consuming these products can lead to a false sense of security and, in some cases, even counterproductive health effects. Here’s why.

The Science Behind EBC-46

EBC-46 (Tigilanol tiglate) is a natural compound found in the seeds of the Blushwood tree (Fontainea picrosperma). This compound has been the subject of extensive research due to its potent anticancer properties. Studies have demonstrated that EBC-46 can destroy cancer cells and stimulate a rapid healing response in the skin, making it a powerful agent in cancer treatment and skin healing therapies.

However, this compound is not present in significant amounts in the fruit. The fruit itself, while nutritious, does not possess the same therapeutic properties. Consuming the fruit or products derived from it as a cancer prevention strategy is not only ineffective but could also be detrimental. The fruit contains sugars that, while natural, can potentially fuel cancer growth rather than prevent it.

The Real Deal: Blushwood Berry Extract Capsules

At Blushwood Health, we ensure that our products contain the pure extract from the Blushwood berry seed, which is rich in EBC-46. Our Blushwood Berry Extract Capsules are formulated to deliver the maximum benefit of this powerful compound, without the misleading claims.

Why You Should Be Cautious

It mortifies me to think how many people are misinformed about this, believing they’re getting the real deal. Here are a few key points to always keep in mind:

1. ALWAYS do your own research: Don't just take the marketing claims at face value. Look into the scientific evidence behind any health supplement.

2. ALWAYS check ingredients when supplementing: Ensure that the product you are buying contains the specific compound or ingredient that delivers the health benefits you are seeking.

In conclusion, while the Blushwood berry is a remarkable natural source of health benefits, it’s essential to understand where these benefits come from and how to access them correctly. Misinformation and misleading marketing can lead to ineffective and potentially harmful health choices. By staying informed and vigilant about the products you choose, you can ensure you are truly supporting your health.
