Blueberry-Supplemented Diet Shows Promise in Lowering Cholesterol in Animal Trials
Date:6/19/2008

using a test tube assay called ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbing Capacity), blueberries ranked among the highest on the list. (Wu, X. et al. J Agric Food Chem 2004, 52:4026-37.) The major contributors to this high level of antioxidant activity are a family of compounds in blueberries called polyphenols -- particularly the flavonoids. (Prior, R.L. et al J Agric Food Chem. 1998, 46: 2686-93). "Flavonoids may act as antioxidants to inhibit LDL oxidation and thereby protect against vascular insult by oxidation," says Kalt. "Flavonoids may also reduce vascular inflammation related to atherosclerosis."

Dr. Kalt advises consumers to choose blueberries along with other brightly colored fruits and vegetables containing health-promoting antioxidants. The USDA recommends between 1 to 2 1/2 cups of fruit per day depending on age, gender and activity level. According to the USDA, just 1/2 cup of fruit delivers one fruit serving. "Eating more fruits and vegetables will help with weight control, disease prevention and promote healthy aging," said Kalt. "Get your blues every day by eating at least 1/2 cup of blueberries as part of a well-balanced diet."
