What is the purpose of this study?
It is becoming increasingly clear that eating plenty of fruits and vegetables is beneficial to our health. In particular, blueberries contain substances which have been shown to provide benefits to human health. This includes protecting the body from chronic illnesses such as cardiovascular disease and lowering the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. However, little is known about the difference in how the body absorbs these berry-derived substances when eaten. The aim of this study is to evaluate what happens to berry components in the body after they are consumed. This information will be useful for future studies looking into how fruits and vegetables may better benefit human health.
