Australia: Taking apples daily is one way of keeping risks linked with cardio health at bay. Catherine Bondonno, doctoral student in pharmacology at the University of Western Australia, researched the effect of apples on nitric oxide (NO) production and endothelial function, which affect cardiovascular health "The endothelium is a single layer of cells lining blood vessels and produces nitric oxide," says Bondonno.
On the study day, an apple was eaten with breakfast and again with lunch to account for the varying times the flavonoids peak in the blood stream. Results indicated that flavonoid rich apples improve nitric oxide status and endothelial functions, factors affecting cardiovascular health.IANS
