Study Finds Purple Fruit Can Help Fight Degenerative Diseases

December 8, 2010: 07:17 AM EST

New research from Professor Douglas Kell of the University of Manchester states that green tea and purple fruit like blueberries help prevent degenerative conditions such as Parkinson’s  and Alzheimer’s, which he says are caused, in part, by “poorly-bound iron” that leads to the body producing damaging toxins.  Nutrients called iron chelators bind the iron and prevent the toxic build-up. Effective chelators are found in bright colored fruit and green tea – although purple fruit works best. Never before have these diseases been tied to poorly or effectively bound iron. The research further states that excessive doses of Vitamin C – in the absence of safely bound iron – can be harmful instead of helpful in the fight against toxins and disease.  Professor Kell also argues that, contrary to some reports, red wine doesn’t have similar benefits and works very differently.
