Scientists tested that the effect on healthy volunteers of consuming 200 grams, or two cupfuls, of blueberries for a month.
“If the changes we saw in blood vessel function after eating blueberries every day could be sustained for a person’s whole life, it could reduce or overcome their risk of developing the cardiovascular disease by up to 20 percent,” said lead researcher Dr. Ana Rodriguez-Mateos.

What can I eat to lower my blood pressure immediately? 

Researchers took 40 healthy volunteers and gave them a daily drink with 200g blueberries, or a control drink with either fiber, vitamins, or minerals for a month. During this time, participants’ blood pressure and flow-mediated dilation were monitored. Flow-mediated dilation is a bio marker for cardio and occurs when the bronchial artery widens as blood flow increases.

No impact on heart health was found in those who consumed or the control drinks daily, but those who consumed the blueberry drink experienced significant health benefits or advantages just one month later. Blood vessel function was improved within hours of drinking the blueberry beverage and improvements were sustained one month later. Blood clotting and blood pressure regulation were also improved.

How much blueberries should I eat per day?

"Although it is perfect and good to eat the whole blueberry to get the full health benefit, our study finds that the majority or most of the effects can be explained by anthologists, said Lead researcher Dr. Ana Rodriguez-Mateos, from King's College London.
"If the changes we saw in blood vessel function after eating blueberries every day could be sustained for a person's whole life, it could overcome or reduce their risk of developing the cardiovascular disease by up to 20 percent."
Researchers noted these heart’s benefits or heart-health benefits come from anthologists, or the phytochemical responsible for making blueberries blue (and other fruits red or purple). Based on the evidence or proof from control groups, it wasn’t the fiber, vitamins, or minerals impacting the heart, but rather the power of anthocyanins.
