Summary

Health effects of Northern berries have been studied intensively already for years.
Different berries show different health effects. Beneficial effects have been found in
weight management, glucose metabolism, liver and eye health, immune function,
oxidative metabolism (cancer prevention) and lipid metabolism. However, results of
different studies are unanimous due to differences in test materials (whole berries /
different berry fractions) and methods (in vitro studies, cell studies, animal studies,
clinical studies). Especially human studies are still rare.
