RealAge.com Suggests a Reason to Celebrate in September!
Date:9/13/2007

Leading healthy-lifestyle Web site pairs foods for healthy and tasty treats

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- What's the occasion? Your health! It's Healthy Aging Month AND Fruit and Vegetable Month this September. RealAge.com, the leading healthy-lifestyle Web site, is celebrating by suggesting a fruity treat that's healthy and just might make you feel younger than the calendar says you are: strawberries dipped in chocolate!

RealAge.com featured this confection in the RealAge Tip of the Day for September 4, 2007. The benefit to your RealAge when you munch on this mouth- watering delight? Getting 31 milligrams of flavonoids a day -- like those found in chocolate and strawberries -- can make your RealAge 3.2 years younger.

Researchers at the University of Minnesota -- Minneapolis recently estimated the flavonoid intake of postmenopausal women. In this study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 16 years of data revealed that the women who ate the highest amount of flavonoid-rich fruits like strawberries, apples, pears, and grapefruit, as well as healthy-aging treats like chocolate (as long as it contained at least 70% real cocoa), were least likely to die from heart disease. Flavonoids are known to thwart bad cholesterol and quell inflammatory processes that might lead to heart disease.
