Eat blueberries

New research has linked blueberry consumption to better blood pressure, and Tufts scientists continue to explore how blueberries protect the brain. More than three-dozen current clinical trials are testing blueberries’ possible benefits for vision, gout protection, arterial function, blood sugar and more.

“Blueberries are rich in polyphenols called anthocyanins, which give them their distinctive color,” says Diane L. McKay, PhD, an assistant professor at Tufts’ Friedman School and a scientist in the HNRCA Antioxidants Research Laboratory. “They are also a good source of vitamin C, manganese and dietary fiber.”http://www.nutritionletter.tufts.edu/news/Blueberry-Compote-1670-1.html?ET=tuftshealthletter:e9370:2119492a:&st=email&s=P_update113015&v=A
