Prevention Magazine Cites Klimis-Zacas’ Blueberry Research

Blueberry health benefits research by Dorothy Klimis-Zacas, a clinical nutritionist and professor at the University of Maine, was cited in a Prevention magazine article titled “10 new ways to lower your blood pressure naturally.” Klimis-Zacas’ research was mentioned under the section that advises readers to “snack on wild blueberries.” She found wild varieties, as opposed to conventional blueberries, may help blood vessels relax and have more antioxidant compounds, which researchers believe also helps maintain a healthy blood pressure, the article states. The Fresno Bee also carried the Prevention report.
