Blend of fruit juices good for the heart

5th May 2011

The research published in the Royal Society of Chemistry journal, Food and Function, has suggested that a blend of fruit juices - including grape, cranberry and blackcurrant - may have benefits for the heart.

Scientists tested the blend on pig arteries in the lab, and found it caused artery walls to relax, though it still remains to be seen whether fruit juices can improve vascular health. The British Heart Foundation said the study adds weight to evidence fruit and vegetables reduces heart disease risk.
