For those of you who like to eat fruits should begin to consider blueberries or strawberries as an option. Recent research indicates, fresh fruit snacking habits of this one bring substantial benefits to health, which helps lower blood pressure.

In a study published the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, scientists discovered the real benefits of blueberries after monitoring the diet approximately 160,000 men and women for 14 years. The scientists analyzed one element in the diet is that antioxidant substances called flavonoids.

The study showed, those who ate the most anthocyanins-a type of flavonoid-recorded 12 percent lower risk of high blood pressure than those who rarely eat fruits that contain these antioxidants.

Bluberie and strawberries are two kinds of fruit that is believed to be best sources of anthocyanins. In fact, those who regularly ate about 1 / 2 cup blueberries in a week recorded 10 per cent lower high blood pressure than those who never eat this fruit. Previous research linking substance also exist anthocyanins with blood vessels more flexible.

"Anthocyanins can increase the production of sodium oxide in the body, which makes blood vessels become more flexible so that blood can more easily pass through," said Aedin Cassidy, Ph.D., a researcher from the University of East Anglia, England.

But what about the other antioxidants? Scientists have also carried out a review of other types of flavonoids - are contained in dark chocolate, red wine and tea - and its quasi has properties reduce the risk of hypertension.

However, flavonoids in blueberries apparently still more superior. 'Other antioxidants may also reduce the risk of high blood pressure, but not as good as anthocyanins. Why? Your estimate is not as good as they got, but future research will uncover any questions about this, 'said Cassidy.
