Berries May Help Your Blood Pressure and Cholesterol

New research from Finland shows that moderate berry consumption can decrease systolic blood pressure and increase HDL "good" cholesterol. Good results for your heart.

Seventy two middle-aged subjects consumed a moderate amount of bilberries, lingonberries, black currants and strawberries over an 8 week period. After the 8 weeks, their blood pressure decreased by 7.3 mmHg and their HDL “good” cholesterol increased by 5.2%.

This research was conducted at the National Public Health Institute, Helsinki, Finland and was published in the February 2008 edition of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

This latest study adds to the growing number of reports linking berries to a wide range of health benefits. So go ahead and help yourself to moderate amounts of the many delicious varieties of berries. Your heart just may thank you.
