We have already written some articles about blueberries. Here’s one more! Because there’s so much good in the little power berries, we just can’t keep that from you. Researchers from the East Anglia University in the UK – together with British colleagues and colleagues from Harvard University in Boston – have found that the consumption of blueberries reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease by 15 percent. That means for us non-physicians: those who eat a lot of blueberries, at least 150 grams daily, reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
The physicians found this in 138 persons with a metabolic syndrome (high blood pressure, obesity, poor blood lipid values and high blood sugar) aged between 50 and 75 years.
