The main question that they set out to answer was if blueberries actually played a role in the formation and differentiation of new baby cells whose role is to be the major vehicle for fat storage in our bodies. Different concentrations of a wild berry extract performed on tissue cultures to figure out what effect these had of fat cell formation. The polyphenols found in the berries showed a dose-dependent suppression of fat cell differentiation and fat cells that were exposed to the highest polyphenols doses showed a 73% decrease in lipid metabolism breakdown and cells that were exposed to the lowest doses showed a 27% decrease in metabolism burn. The ultimate conclusion revealed in the study determined that the polyphenols in
blueberries can block the highway leading to obesity at the molecular level and could possibly play an important role in completely preventing the development of new fat cells.
