Natural Cholesterol- and Fat-Burner
News flash: here's a possible cholesterol- and fat-burner with only good side effects, according to studies by the US Dept. of Agriculture.
In addition to being a great source of antioxidants, recent studies indicate that Pterostilbene, a natural compound found in blueberries, may be another weapon in the battle against heart and circulatory disease. Studies on rat cells seem to show that this compound helps break down cholesterol and fat.
The action of this compound is similar to that of resveratrol, found in grapes and red wine, frequently cited as being healthy for the heart..
Just one more reason to find more ways to use this blue food!
