New Research Shows Wild Blueberries Have Potential to Improve Heart Health
Date:10/1/2013

Portland, Maine (PRWEB) October 01, 2013

Researchers at the University of Reading (UK), the University of Dusseldorf (Germany) and the University of Northumbria (UK) have used state-of-the-art techniques to discover that Wild Blueberries can improve vascular function in healthy men.

In their study, researchers learned that Wild Blueberries may help blood vessels to function better and remain healthier, meaning that the heart does not have to work as hard to circulate blood through the body. These findings are the first to link Wild Blueberry polyphenols, natural compounds that are abundant in Wild Blueberries, to improvements in vascular function in healthy men.

“For the first time, we have shown that Wild Blueberry consumption can improve endothelial function, which has been shown to be a highly sensitive marker for the overall cardiovascular risk of an individual,” said Dr. Ana Rodriguez-Mateos, PhD, from the Division of Cardiology, Pulmunology and Vascular Medicine at the University of Dusseldorf in Germany. Dr. Rodriguez-Mateos is first author of the study and a contributor to the annual Wild Blueberry Bar Harbor Research Summit.

“Importantly, even the lowest amount of Wild Blueberries tested in the study, equivalent to 3/4 cup of Wild Blueberries, was able to improve endothelial function, which is an amount easy to incorporate into a daily diet,” noted Rodriguez-Mateos.

Cardiovascular Disease Risk and Endothelial Function
Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of death in the United States. These findings are significant because flow-mediated dilation (FMD), the gold-standard technique to measure endothelial function, has been shown to be a good predictor of cardiovascular disease risk. The endothelium is the inner lining of the blood vessel that comes in contact with the blood.

Consuming Wild Blueberries in achievable amounts may help to maintain a healthy circulatory syst
