Curtis et al. (2022) found that when blueberries are added to high fat and high sugar meals they can reduce the effects of these foods!
What does that mean? Blueberries are known as the berry for brain and nerves' repair, but thankfully, the study shows that blueberries also supports heart health and weight management.
So yes, the study finds that blueberries lower the effects of fats and sugar.
Add 1 cup of blueberries to your meal or 1 capsule of Blueberry Extract
Conclusions: For the first time, in an at-risk population, we show that single-exposure to the equivalent of 1 cup blueberries (provided as freeze-dried powder) attenuates the deleterious postprandial effects of consuming an energy-dense high-fat/high-sugar meal over 24 h; reducing insulinaemia and glucose levels, lowering cholesterol, and improving HDL-C, fractions of HDL-P and Apo-A1. Consequently, intake of anthocyanin-rich blueberries may reduce the acute cardiometabolic burden of energy-dense meals. (Curtis et al., 2022) Article
suggested amount: 1 capsule of Blueberry Extract with high density foods.
