A new study shows strawberries and blueberries can help women fight heart disease.
Researchers followed about 100-thousand women for nearly 20 years.
They found those who ate several servings of blueberries and strawberries every week lowered their chances of a heart attack by 32-percent.
Blueberries and strawberries have high levels of a natural compound called flavonoids.
“This class of food helps dilate the arteries and reduce inflammation in the arteries, therefore reducing heart attack rates,” said researcher Dr. Mary McLaughlin.
Flavonoids can also be found in grapes and wine, eggplant and other fruits and vegetables.
