HispanicBusiness.com Reports on Klimis-Zacas’ Blueberry Research

HispanicBusiness.com cited research by Dorothy Klimis-Zacas, a clinical nutritionist and professor at the University of Maine, for the article “Studies from University of Maine further understanding of metabolism.” Klimis-Zacas found eating 2 cups of wild blueberries a day for two months can improve metabolism of fat, reduce chronic inflammation and lower LDL cholesterol. She also found a diet enriched with the fruit can normalize gene expression of inflammatory markers and those related to lipid and lipoprotein metabolism.
