Cranberries and blueberries contain special substances which are favorable to our health and especially our bones.
If we want to lose weight, let's eat cranberries and blueberries!
To lose weight we should start eating blueberries because they reduce the number of fat cells in the body by up to three quarters, according to many researchers.
Researchers found that blue berries can remove the fats and prevent the formation of new cells, making them a potentially powerful weapon in the fight against obesity. Blueberries, reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 of diabetes, contain high levels of polyphenols - substances with potential health benefits.
Tests reveal that polyphenols may reduce the number of fat cells in the body by 73 per cent (at high dose) and 27 per cent - at the lowest dose. Survey results show that the highest dose of blueberry polyphenols reduces lipids in tissues with nearly three quarters, and at the lowest levels - more than a quarter. Blueberries have the potential to become an effective tool for weight loss. Scientists need to do some more researches to find out the optimal dose of polyphenols and to exclude possible side effects.
Animal studies show that the intake of cranberry extracts increases bone density. In laboratory tests of the blood of animals it was found that the serum of blue berries makes the bones healthy. This discovery could lead to the development of new methods for preventing many diseases such as osteoporosis,which is associated with bone loss. There are however more studies to prove the safety and efficacy of this therapy in humans.
The scientists say that cranberries are good for teeth as they destroy bacteria in the mouth that attack the tooth enamel.The battle of good oral hygiene actually attack the microbes that feed on adhering to the teeth sugar and carbohydrates and produce acids which attack the surface of the teeth.
Laboratory studies demonstrated the potential of natural ingredients that will eventually be incorporated into toothpastes or fluid to rinse the mouth to stop the deterioration of the teeth. Cranberries contain ingredients that fight glucans (molecules that stick to the tooth enamel and provide refuge for bacteria). These ingredients do not destroy bacteria themselves, and their fortifications. Researchers have isolated compounds called proanthocyanidins in cranberries, which reduce the production of glucans by 70 per cent in animal experiments.
With all this in mind, I hope you start consuming more cranberries and blueberries.
