BerriHealth, a leader in providing high-quality black raspberry powder for clinical trials and directly to consumers online, has donated a portion of their 2013 sales to New Orleans Louisiana Neuroendocrine Tumor Specialists (NOLANETS), led by Dr. Eugene Woltering. The program is a collaborative effort between the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center and the Ochsner Medical Center in Kenner Louisiana, and the money helps enable research for patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). This is the third consecutive year that BerriHealth has made this donation.
In 2014, BerriHealth is working to expand their support for cancer research. Customers can show support for neuroendocrine tumor research by using a promotion code, NETs, on the BerriHealth website, http://www.berrihealth.com. Any order placed with this code will have 5% of the purchase price donated to research focused on neuroendocrine tumors.
“Funding for research in neuroendocrine tumors is extremely difficult to obtain through traditional funding sources,” notes Dr. Woltering. With new research and increased medical awareness, there has been more focus on correctly diagnosing and treating NETs.
The black raspberry, grown mostly in Oregon, is prized for high levels of anthocyanins and polyphenols. Because of this special combination of phytonutrients in high concentrations, black raspberries have been studied in numerous clinical trials, and in NET cancer research done by the NOLANETS team.
