Eating lots of antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables could help keep women’s heart attack risk low, according to a large new study. Does this answer questions about why the happy healthcare host, Mr. Divabetic wears a fruit suit?
GLAM MORE, FEAR LESS!
Researchers from the Karolinska Institute found that women who consumed the most antioxidants from foods — not to mention ate nearly seven servings of fruits and vegetables each day — had a 20 percent decreased risk of having a heart attack over a 10-year period.
Even though past studies have not shown any immense benefit from taking antioxidant supplements on heart attack risk, the researchers noted that the positive effect observed in this study may be because the women ate actual fruits and vegetables.
“In contrast to supplements of single antioxidants, the dietary total antioxidant capacity reflects all present antioxidants, including thousands of compounds, all of them in doses present in our usual diet, and even takes into account their synergistic effects,” study researcher Dr. Alicja Wolk, DrMedSci, said in a statement.
