A study published in the American Journal of Medicine has revealed that the women’s risks of a coronary heart disease can be reduced significantly with the help of total antioxidants.
The illness is common in women and often becomes the cause of their deaths. As per the findings, fruits and vegetables containing antioxidants may but help them reduce their risks of developing myocardial infarction.
Almost 32,561 Swedish women of ages 49-83 years were enrolled by researchers at the Institute of Environmental Medicine, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden. Of the same, 1,114 women were with a myocardial infarction. From September 1997 through December 2007, women participants were examined on what they ate.
Getting a food-frequency questionnaire filled by them, total antioxidant capacity was measured. For the same, a database measuring the ORAC or oxygen radical absorption capacity was used. It was then found that highest total antioxidant capacity meant a 20% reduction in risks.
It is therefore being suggested that women should have 7 servings of fruit and vegetables a day instead of normal 2.4 servings. “In contrast to supplements of single antioxidants, the dietary total antioxidant capacity reflects all present antioxidants and even takes into account their synergistic effects”, lead investigator Alicja Wolk said.
