The current issue of PCOS Health Review cites new research about the positive effect of berries on the liver. Women with PCOS have a 50% risk of developing Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD), a “hidden” symptom of the disorder.
Sixty-one women were divided into two groups for the study undertaken by Finland’s University of Turku. One group ate 1/3 lb of berries every day; the other did not.
The berry-eating group was found to have a 23 per cent decrease in the market for liver disease.
A variety of berries are recommended to achieve a protective effect on the liver and for overall good health. The article recommends: blackberry, lingonberry, blueberry, boysenberry, raspberry, gooseberry, dewberry, elderberry, youngberry, loganberry and strawberry.
