Professor Michael Aviram led the research at the Rambam Medical Centre in Haifa, Israel, which discovered that the fruit could help cut levels of harmful fat in blood.

"To find such a high level of antioxidants packed into this super little berry is an exciting and significant breakthrough in heart health," the Daily Express quoted him as saying.

The study was published in the Royal Society of Chemistry journal Food and Function.
