Eat Blueberries & Strawberries for Anthocyanins

A new study in the journal Circulation followed 93,600 women over 18 years. These women were followed-up every four years with information about their diet and this shows how you could reduce your risk of heart attack by 32 percent—naturally.1  Women are less likely to suffer from a heart attack then men. But when they do they are less likely to survive.2[ii] So take note…

Add blueberries and strawberries to your daily diet because these contain a specific subclass of flavonoids (antioxidants) called Anthocyanins. These Anthocyanins can actually dilate arteries. By dilating arteries, plaque can’t build up. This eliminates blockages.

Of course women still need to eat a balanced meal with vegetables, some fat and lots of lean protein. And they need to incorporate some sort of physical activity in their daily life.

The research shows, a handful of strawberries and blueberries may ward off what could be a fatal attack.
