Yummy Berries Cut Heart Attack Risk by a Third – Good To Know for Gastric Sleeve Surgery Patients in Dr Shillingford’s Palm Beach Gastric Sleeve Surgery Practice


Eating a diet of three or more servings of blueberries and strawberries a week may help women reduce their risk of a heart attack, according to research from the University of East Anglia, in collaboration with the Harvard School of Public Health. The berries contain high levels of flavoinoids called anthocyanins, which may help dilate arteries, counter buildup of plaque and provide other heart health benefits.
