A welcome diet and health trend.

Although they have become much more common in recent years, we do not always include berries in our daily diet, and from a health point of view it is a real shame.

Recently, it seems that we have discovered blueberries here in Israel, which, in addition to their taste, contain large amounts of antioxidants, which makes them a health bomb that can be useful for a variety of diseases and conditions.

In addition, they are a good source of magnesium, potassium and copper, and rich in vitamin K, vitamin C and dietary fiber.



Here are some of their salient health benefits:



Reducing abdominal fat and cholesterol


A study from the University of Michigan found that blueberries positively affect the way the body uses and stores sugar.

In the study, the researchers put blueberry powder into rats' food.

In one group the rats received a high-fat diet and in the other group a low-fat diet.

After 90 days, the rats that received the blueberry powder showed a reduction in abdominal fat and a decrease in blood triglyceride and cholesterol levels was observed.

In addition, regulating sugar levels was more effective and insulin sensitivity improved.

In the group that received a low-fat diet there was a more significant weight loss.

So much so that the British Oral Health Association has issued a statement saying they are "particularly good".

The recommendation joins a new study conducted at the University of Queensland in Australia according to which berries may reduce the risk of tooth decay by reducing the amount of bacteria in the mouth.

The researchers examined the effect of cranberry, blueberry and strawberry extracts on oral bacteria.

They found that cranberries and blueberries cause a significant decrease in their amount.

Naboo Phillip, from the University of Queensland School of Dentistry who served as the team's lead researcher, suggested using these fruits as "natural weapons" in the fight against tooth decay.

are an excellent fruit for dieting, according to a study by the Harvard School of Public Health, which tracked the diet and weight patterns of more than 130,000 Americans for 24 years, and four years apart.

The researchers found that eating a serving of blueberries a day was found to be associated with a 0.7-pound drop over four years.

In addition, blueberries are known to contain chlorogenic acid which accelerates the metabolic process and

, like all berries, they contain antioxidants called anthocyanins - a red-purple pigment used by the plant to filter sunlight.

It is an extremely powerful antioxidant that helps slow down the aging process, by reducing the harmful effect created by free radicals and reducing inflammation in the body.

Improve



heart and artery health


Blueberries have the ability to reduce inflammation and improve heart health and studies have shown that eating them can reduce some of the risk factors for atherosclerosis, including: LDL cholesterol, high blood pressure and blood sugar.

Adding blueberries, and berries to the menu can prevent arterial blockage by reducing inflammation and the accumulation of cholesterol deposits and improve arterial function by protecting the cells from free radical damage.

A delicious and effective fruit for health.

A study by the US Department of Health found that fruit anthocyanins were rapidly absorbed into the endothelial cells in the inner wall of blood vessels and prevented oxidative processes.

The researchers concluded that this could have an important effect in protecting blood vessels and preventing coronary heart disease.

In addition, anthocyanins have a relaxing effect on blood vessels, which contributes to reducing high blood pressure.

Preserving



Memory and the Brain


A study conducted at Koncock University in South Korea found that drinking and eating blueberry vinegar may prevent and even reverse dementia damage.

In the study, an experiment was performed on mice suffering from amnesia and the researchers found that the memory of the mice fed on blueberry vinegar produced in the process of fermenting the fruit, returned to them following the consumption of vinegar.

The fact that blueberries contain chemicals and compounds that strengthen and protect the brain has been known for some time, and Korean researchers claim that in their vinegar-fermented form they are even more effective.



The researchers found that after consuming the vinegar in mice, there were higher levels of protein that serves as a kind of "fuel" for the nerve cells as well as higher levels of another compound that dementia causes to destroy.
