For all the women who are worried about their heart health, here's good news. Consumption of a minimum of three or more servings of strawberries and blueberries a week might reduce heart attack threats by a whopping one-third. Researchers have found that blueberries and strawberries have high levels of flavonoids also found in grapes, blackberries, eggplant and other vegetables.

This anthocyanin could help in dilating the artery and reduce the build-up of a wax-like substance called plaque, thus reducing the threat of heart attack.
