Consuming Blueberries Daily Reduces Heart Hazards—Study

Eating a cup of blueberries every day cuts down the risk factors for CVD (cardiovascular disease), as per to new study conducted by the UEA (University of East Anglia), in partnership with associates from Harvard and across the U.K. The study was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. The research showed that eating 150 Grams of blueberries each day reduces the peril of CVD by up to 15%. The research team from the UEA’s Norwich Medical School stated that blueberries and other berries must be included in dietary plans to decrease the risk of CVD, particularly amongst at-risk groups. The research group set out to see whether consuming blueberries had any impact on Metabolic syndrome—a medical condition that affects one-third of westernized adults—which includes at least three of the risk factors such as high blood sugar, high blood pressure, extra body fat around the waist, high levels of triglycerides, and low levels of “good cholesterol.”

Professor Aedin Cassidy—Lead Researcher from UEA—said, “Having Metabolic syndrome considerably surges the jeopardy of stroke, heart disease, and diabetes and mostly statins and other drugs are recommended to help in controlling this risk. It is widely known that lifestyle changes, counting making simple modifications to food choices, can also assist. The past studies have shown that people who regularly consume blueberries have a reduced danger of developing conditions counting type II diabetes and CVD. This might be as blueberries are high in naturally containing compounds known as anthocyanins, which are the flavonoids accountable for the blue and red color in fruits.

On a similar note, recently, a study showed that the “blue” in blueberries could help in lowering blood pressure. The research has found that consuming 200 Grams of blueberries daily for a month can cause an advance in blood vessel function and a decline in systolic blood pressure in fit people. Scientists from KCL (Kings College London) monitored 40 healthy volunteers for 1 Month. The new study was published in the Journal of Gerontology Series A.
