A study done on blueberries at Texas Woman’s University recently may have shown that the super food has more value than its antioxidant properties.
Researchers are now saying that blueberries may be good for reducing body fat.
In the study, the polyphenols extracted from blueberries were applied directly to tissue samples from mice. The polyphenols were applied to three different samples, in three different doses. The results were unanimous - the samples that had the blueberry polyphenols all had a decrease in body fat versus the control.
The sample with the highest dose of polyphenols had a 73 percent decrease in fat cells, and the sample with the smallest dose of polyphenols had a 27 percent decrease.
More studies need to be performed to determine effectiveness in humans.
