Blueberries and Your Heart

blueberriesCleveland Clinic, regarded as the number one healthcare system for cardiac care, wants you to know that a new study shows that in addition to great flavor, blueberries are good for your heart. Vitamin C and a wide array of healthy phytochemicals and anthocyanins help lower existing risk factors such as obesity, high blood pressure and more. In the six-month study, people with these and other characteristics who ate a cup of blueberries daily for six months were in better shape than those who did not. Vessels and arteries were in better condition with a 12 to 15 percent lower risk of heart disease. To receive the therapeutic benefits of blueberries, add a cup to oatmeal, a smoothie, salad or just enjoy your blueberries as a mid-day snack.
