Blueberries may be the real key to lower blood pressure and to good health as well.

Recent studies by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics have shown that post-menopausal women with high blood pressure, and have added blueberry smoothie into their diet daily, experienced a 5% decrease in systolic blood pressure and 6% decrease in diastolic blood pressure. There’s also a 69% decrease in the blood levels of nitric oxide, which helps in increasing the blood flow through the widening of blood vessels.

What’s the reason behind the decrease?

The researchers attributed this decrease to the potent flavonoid antioxidant, such as anthocyanins, which is relevant to the production of nitric oxide and reduces inflammation.
