Eating blueberries may help tackle high blood pressure

( — A new study suggests adding blueberries in daily diet can help patients keep blood pressure down. Researchers have found that eating two handfuls of blueberries a week can cut the risk of developing hypertension or high blood pressure.

Health benefits of blueberries are well documented in some earlier researches. Blueberries are rich in valuable nutrients, low in sugar, are healthy, and great to taste.

The fruit contains a host of wonderful ingredients from anthocyanins and phytochemicals to vitamin C, potassium, iron, fiber, and antioxidants. Anthocyanins are very dark in color, usually blue, purple, or dark red.

In some previous studies, the properties found in blueberries have been linked to lowering cholesterol levels, encouraging heart health, protecting the body against certain types of cancers, promoting healthy aging, reducing inflammation, asthma, cataracts and even cystisis.
