Blueberry leaves (Vaccinium spp. L.) are used as a natural health product and traditional medicine for health maintenance in type-2 diabetes. In this study, seven blueberry species available to northern communities in North America and one used by the Lukomir Highlanders in Europe were assessed for phytochemical content and antidiabetic activity using an in vitro advanced glycation end product (antiglycation) assay. All Vaccinium spp. were found to have potent antiglycation activity that was… CONTINUE READING
