Blueberries Beat Drugs for Reducing Blood Pressure
Another drug of dark pharma is shown to be an inferior choice against a natural product and simple life style change… Eat blueberries instead of drugs. Actually in this case, powdered blueberries.
Freeze dry them. Grind them into powder… And another overpriced, side effect laden drug bites the dust.
The article doesn’t say if they did any testing with fresh or frozen blueberries. They used 22 grams of powder which isn’t much. That’s about 3/4 of 1 ounce. I don’t know how many blueberries it took to manufacture 22 grams; but, it couldn’t be a lot.
Put drugs on the bottom of your list of things to test to maximize your health. As always use your judgement. Each of us is unique. Only you know what makes sense for you.

Blueberry Powder Outperforming Pharmaceuticals In Reducing Blood Pressure
Blueberries have been championed for their high antioxidant potential and anti-inflammatory properties. They are recognized as a good source of flavonoids, especially anthocyanins, which have strong antioxidative activity, some of which have antioxidant activity shown in laboratory studies.
New research shows they can reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure and potentially better than pharmaceuticals.
The blood pressure relief comes from pterostilbene, a compound found in both grapes and blueberries. This antioxidant is chemically related to reservatrol, another heart-healthy compound that is found in the skin of grapes.
Various studies have shown pterostilbene to have possible anti-cancer and anti-diabetes properties.
