Fruit is Berry Important to Lower Risk of Heart Attack

January 25th, 2013 | General News, Nutrition and Health

Can a fruit salad really save you from a life-threatening heart attack? According to Harvard researchers, if it contains blueberries and strawberries, it just might have that remarkable effect on young women and heart attacks. The New York Times gives the full report, but here’s the gist:

“Women who ate more than three servings of blueberries or strawberries a week — the most common anthocyanin-rich foods consumed — had a 34 percent lower risk than those who ate less.”

Anthocyanin is a flavonoid which has “demonstrated ability to protect against a myriad of human diseases,” including the ability to lower blood pressure and help with heart attack prevention.

Who are we to argue with such research on heart attack diets? To the produce section, ladies!
