Blueberry Boost for PCOS-Linked Metabolic Syndrome

Eating antioxidant-packed blueberries may help to reduce some of the health risks of heart-damaging metabolic syndrome, which is closely-linked to PCOS.
 
In a study published in The Journal of Nutrition, 44 adult females with metabolic syndrome were divided into two groups. One group consumed 50 grams of freeze-dried blueberries per day – equivalent to 350 grams of fresh blueberries – in the form of a beverage for a period of 8 weeks.
 
The other group consumed a placebo beverage that did not contain any blueberries, also for 8 weeks. Blood pressure checks and multiple blood tests were performed at both 4 weeks and 8 weeks into the study.
The patients in the “blueberry group” were found to have significantly greater decreases in their high blood pressure when compared to the control group. The level of oxidized LDL “bad” cholesterol was also significantly decreased in the “blueberry group” of volunteers. High levels of blood pressure and LDL cholesterol are classic symptoms of metabolic syndrome, as well as PCOS.
