Flavonoids in Fruits and Vegetables May Preserve Lung Function
A new study from the US discovers that flavonoids, natural compounds found in fruits and vegetables, may help preserve the lung function, which tends to decline with age.
For the study, a team of researchers looked at data from 463 adults from Norway and England whose average age was 44. These adults took part in a spirometry test, or a pulmonary lung function test, at the start of the study and during the follow-up period.
Vanessa Garsia-Larsen, a lead researcher, comments: “Our study suggests that the general population could benefit from consuming more fruits rich in these flavonoids like berries, particularly those who have given up smoking or have never smoked […] For smokers, quitting remains the best thing they can do to protect their health.”
