Fresh strawberries are for sale everywhere in Brisbane in Spring. Delicious and good for you.
Strawberries Decrease Cholesterol levels
A lot of studies suggest that increased dietary intake of flavonoids – especially those found in berries – can reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease. After eight weeks of drinking a frozen berry smoothie, 66 people with an average age of 49 had an 11% reduction of low-density lipoprotein (LDL; “bad”) cholesterol.
Their total cholesterol decreased and a marker of oxidative stress also decreased.
Yippee. Much more fun than taking Cholesterol medication 🙂
