Scientists from the University of East Anglia, in collaboration with colleagues from Harvard University, have come to the conclusion that eating 150 grams of blueberries every day reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease by 15 percent. The results of the study are published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
The total number of participants in the study was 138 people from 50 to 75 years, who were overweight and had different metabolic syndrome. They were divided into three groups, one group consumed 150 grams of blueberries per day, the second group – 75 grams, and the third group did not eat blueberries. Results are summarized after 6 months.
“We found that eating a cup of blueberries per day (150 grams) greatly improved blood circulation and vascular durability,” said Peter Curtis, an expert.
In particular, the consumption of 75 grams of blueberries has no effect on the health of the participants.
Heart surgeon Vladimir Khoroshev notes that the batter of this berry is rich in organic acids, protein, fiber, and fast carbohydrates.
