Blueberry Flavonoids improve heart health in men

According to two studies in healthy men, researchers from the UK and Germany show that consuming a drink rich in blueberry polyphenols improved flow mediated dilation (FMD) for hours after consuming the berries. FMD is a measure of the ability of blood vessels to open (dilate) to accommodate increases in volume of blood flow. Greater FMD is related to greater vascular health and improved blood pressure readings. The study is published in the September 4th, 2013 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
