A new study suggests consuming raspberries could significantly reduce a person risk of heart disease, the Daily Mail reported.

For the study, Kings College London researchers had 10 participants have drinks made with frozen raspberries.

 

They also had their blood and urine measured before drinking, two hours after drink and one day later.

Results showed participants had better flow-mediated dilation (FMD). "FMD is an indicator of the health of the endothelial lining of the blood vessels, and the state of the lining can indicate a person's risk of heart disease", the report revealed.

 Researchers believe it could slash a person's risk of the disease by 15%.

The findings of the trial were published in the scientific journal The Archives of Biochemistry and Biophysics.
