A Sweet Snack That Lowers Cholesterol!


Okay, it’s no news flash that blueberries are nutritious. But here’s something you probably didn’t know: They may help keep your arteries from clogging.

In an animal study, researchers discovered that blueberries could have the power to cut LDL cholesterol levels almost in half.

Blueberry Boost
In the study, scientists noted that the blueberry health benefits persisted even when the test subjects were fed a high-fat diet. At the end of the 3-week study period, the blueberry-supplemented diet had reduced LDL (the bad stuff) cholesterol by as much as 44 percent. And total cholesterol had dipped 27 percent. Pretty impressive numbers. More study is needed to see whether the same benefits would hold true in humans, but researchers are optimistic.

How Sweet It Is
Researchers think that blueberries may help keep blood fats down because of their liver-supportive nature. The liver is the organ that helps the body get rid of excessive levels of cholesterol. And compounds in blueberries appear to help activate certain genes in the liver, giving it a boost in doing its job more efficiently. That’s just one more reason — in addition to their blood-pressure-lowering and fat-cell-thwarting powers — to always have fresh, frozen, and freeze-dried blueberries on hand. So start snacking on this super-fruit.
