New Research Shows Berries as Heart Health Protectors
An explosion of research over the last decade has put berries front and center in a nutritional program for good health. And now, recent findings from the Nurses’ Health Study (NIS) II—a long-term nutrition study includes 93,600 women—highlight berry intake as a key strategy for maintaining heart health. Over an 18-year period, women who ate four or more servings of blueberries and strawberries per week had a 34 percent better chance of keeping their hearts healthy than women who consumed less. The researchers attribute this discovery to anthocyanins, which are health-promoting flavonoids that give berries their rich colors. The report was published in January 2013 by the American Heart Association. (Cassidy A, et al. Circulation 2013; Vol.127, Pages 188-196.)
This is great news for Blueberry Detox® users, because not only does Blueberry Detox® boost your anthocyanin intake, taking one serving daily protects your heart with psyllium fiber at the same time. In fact, FDA labeling regulations (which dictate what we can and cannot tell you about the health benefits of dietary supplements) allow us to make the following statement: Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 7 grams of soluble fiber per day from psyllium husk may reduce the risk of heart disease. One serving of Blueberry Detox® Fiber Formula provides 4 grams of this soluble fiber.
Of course, Blueberry Detox® is great for maintaining regularity and healthy elimination, too—that’s the main reason folks are using it. This latest research shows that the blueberries in Blueberry Detox® do more than just give it a great berry taste. So keep taking Blueberry Detox® knowing you’re helping to keep your intestinal tract—and your heart—healthy.
