Scientists have published new evidence that natural pigments of blue/purple/reddish found in certain fruits and vegetables may help prevent obesity and improve other health markers. However, they found that eating the extract of blueberry was more effective at promoting weight loss than eating the whole fruit.
In the new study, researchers found that mice fed a high-fat diet for 8 weeks plus drinking water with purified anthecyanins from blueberries and strawberries gained less weight and had lower body fat levels than a control group. “Anthocyanins fed as the whole blueberry did not prevent and may have actually increased obesity,” the study reported. “However, feeding purified anthocyanins from blueberries or strawberries reduced obesity.”
What does this mean to some interested in losing weight? The study gives evidence to the health and weight-loss benefits of taking fruit extracts from blueberries, grapes, etc. Zambroza is brimming with extracts from colourful fruits such as blueberries. People who take Zambroza report weight loss as one of its many benefits.
