Study Shows Strawberries and Blueberries May Cut Heart Attack Risk For Women


A new report suggests women could reduce their risk of heart attack by as much as one-third by eating three or more servings of strawberries or blueberries per week.

The report appears in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association.

The berries contain high levels of dietary flavonoids.  A sub-class of flavonoids called anthocyanins may help dilate arteries, countering the buildup of plaque and providing other benefits.

Researchers say they selected blueberries and strawberries because they are the most commonly eaten berries in the United States.  They say it’s possible other berries could produce the same results.
