Freeze-Dried Strawberry Powder Lowers Cholesterol Levels In Obese Women – Study

September 28, 2009: 02:36 AM EST
The novel dietary supplement freeze-dried strawberry powder (FSP), which provides a concentrated source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents, seems to lower cholesterol – including the “bad” low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol – in women with signs of metabolic syndrome such as hypertension and high trigyceride levels. According to the U.S. study in Nutrition Journal, participants aged 39 to 71 years drank two cups of a 25-gram FSP-water mixture daily. After four weeks, total cholesterol levels dropped by five percent, while LDL-cholesterol levels declined six percent. The researchers say their findings warrant larger controlled studies.
