Strawberries are your way to prevent cardiovascular disease.. a study that clarifies

A new study has found that eating small portions of strawberries every day can help prevent serious cardiovascular disease, according to Express.

Serious cardiovascular disease can be prevented by making small adjustments to your diet that can reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease, such as a heart attack, as a new study published in the journal Nutrients confirms.

The study revealed that adding strawberries to the diet can protect against heart disease risk factors in adults, especially those who are obese or have high levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, also known as "bad" cholesterol.

The study, which was conducted on 33 adults (average age 53 years), underwent eating strawberries for 4 weeks, equivalent to one or two and a half servings per day, while refraining from eating any other berries.

The study found that eating the equivalent of two daily servings of strawberries significantly improved cardiovascular risk by improving insulin resistance and lipid molecule profiles.

Dietitian Dr. Emma Derbyshire said: 'We know that healthy living includes eating healthy, and can help reduce heart disease risk, prevent weight gain and lower the risk of diabetes.

"Eating a lot of fruits and vegetables is important for health, and this is another indication that eating strawberries can be a good choice for many people. We know that you should eat five servings of fruits and vegetables a day," she added.

Adding strawberries to breakfast, eating them as a snack between main meals, or serving them with natural yogurt can all contribute to your daily fruit ration and benefit from the health benefits they provide.
